Transparency leads to better outcomes

Why we’re here

Have you ever lost out on the home of your dreams and wondered if the outcome would have been different if only you knew what you were up against? Alternatively, have you ever sold a home and questioned if you really got the best price?

Judd Hoffman, Danko Fatovic and Tim Quirk, who had previously teamed up to build, and later sell, Erecruit, a leading enterprise software platform used by the largest staffing and recruiting companies globally, set out to find the answers to these residential real estate questions. Approaching the problem much in the same way as they had at Erecruit, the trio approached Kevin Caulfield, one of the top real estate agents in the Boston area, to round out the team.

Together, leveraging their talents in building platforms for scale, combined with a deep knowledge of residential real estate, the four founded Final Offer as a new way for top real estate agents to provide a more transparent listing and offer experience to their clients.

Final Offer was born out of the notion that selling or buying a home should be a transparent and less stressful process. Homeowners want confidence that their agent is able to sell their home at the highest possible value, and on their terms. When buying your next home, you should have the knowledge of exactly where you stand and what it will take to make an offer that is accepted. That’s what Final Offer is all about – providing complete transparency and integrity in the home selling and buying process to maximize the outcome for sellers, buyers and their agents.

With financial investment from more than 25 families from Final Offer’s hometown of Hingham, as well as leading real estate brokers around greater Boston and Washington, D.C., Final Offer is poised to transform the way we all buy and sell homes moving forward.

Final Offer was founded by a team of real estate and technology leaders looking to address the lack of transparency and certainty in buying and selling homes.
