Licensed Listing Agent

The Company
Perch is transforming the way people buy and sell their homes. Simplifying it all, to the way it should have always been; fair and true to market, straightforward, easy. Every year in the U.S., $1.5 trillion of single family residences transact, generating over $120 billion of fees in a process that has changed little in decades. For the average American, the home purchase and sale process takes months, creates anxiety and is filled with uncertainty and hassle. Perch offers a modern alternative, making one of life's biggest decisions -- the sale and purchase of a home –so stress free, fair and simple that people cannot imagine any other way.

Perch is headquartered in New York City and has 100+ employees. We have raised $250 million in financing from top tier investors including: Firstmark, Accomplice and Juxtapose.

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

Perch is a hyper-connected company and cross-departmental collaboration is key to our success and culture. On any given day, I am working with investments, contracts, field ops and title to drive conversion. Since we have an office in NY and Austin, teams connect through break outs, zoom meetings, our internal platform and, most notably, Slack.

By blending our personalities, knowledge, experience and skills to create a cohesive team of contributors, all team members feel valued. Successful team members show grit and drive and stay engaged and excited as we grow.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

As an early-stage fast growing company, we're faced with daily challenges and tall goals. It's important to hold all team members accountable, provide a balance of autonomy and guidance, and create an environment where it's okay to fail. This supports creativity and encourages your team to be resourceful and solution-oriented.

Thomas Lalonde
