Houwzer is a modern, fairly priced real estate agency for savvy homeowners. We’ve rebuilt the real estate brokerage model from the ground up with technology and a salaried team of experts. Home sellers save tons on the sale of their home with our full service listing agents, while home buyers trust our salaried team's focus on service, not commissions. It's not a discount — just a fairer way of doing business. Our commitment to better business practices goes beyond the services we offer to our clients and customers. As a certified B Corporation Company, we strive to demonstrate our commitment to ethics and accountability with our clients, our communities, and our team.
