Transparency leads to better outcomes

How we got here

Our story begins with Kevin Caulfield of Caulfield Properties, a premier real estate advising group in the greater Boston area. With over a billion dollars in real estate sales, Kevin has built his business around relationships and continuous growth year-over-year. In 2021, Kevin was motivated to challenge and transform the real estate industry for the better by bringing a transparent, efficient, and trusted solution to the market. His primary goal was to shift agent’s workflow from executing cumbersome tasks to facilitating meaningful conversations with their clients, solving the everyday roadblocks they experience in their transactions and providing a tool that helps top producing agents scale their business and generate more leads.

Kevin approached the team that he knew could execute the platform to scale and who had an equal drive to transform the real estate industry. Judd Hoffman, Danko Fatovic and Tim Quirk had previously teamed up to build, and later sell, Erecruit, a leading enterprise software platform used by the largest staffing and recruiting companies globally. With a deep understanding and knowledge of running large-scale technology platforms that change the way industries operate, the trio made the perfect fit to join Kevin in rounding out the leadership team.

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.

Why we’re here

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.

That’s what Final Offer is all about – providing listing agents and their sellers with the opportunity to sell their properties through a fully transparent, competitive platform that drives urgency from the buying community. The ability to inform buyers what is important allows sellers and their agents to act more strategically while giving buyers the clarity and confidence they need to make an offer they know will be accepted.

The team

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.
