our story

dwellowner was founded by Eric Eckardt, who paused operations to build out two other US national real estate platforms since 2012 for companies traded on the NASDAQ and London Stock Exchange (LSE) . In 2019, he exited his role from a UK influenced brokerage to assemble a world-class team and relaunch dwellowner in the US with complete autonomy to drive innovation with a commitment to building a more convenient, transparent and cost effective real estate solution for the consumer.
