Our signature tech-enabled property management allows us to deliver unparalleled experiences across our growing portfolio of homes.

Common sits squarely at the intersection between technology and real estate, working every day to build quality residential solutions that bring positive change to the world’s rental housing crisis. 

Common was founded by Brad Hargreaves and has raised $65MM in venture funding. Brad is a visionary leader with vast experience in the technology and service space, previously founding the education company General Assembly.

An Insider's view of Common

What are some social events your company does?

Every Thursday we host the "happiest hour" at 5 PM in our office. This is a great way for teams to mingle and take a break from work while playing chess, checkers, Jenga, etc. with people on other teams over some beer, rosé and mocktails.

What makes someone successful on your team?

On Common’s marketing team, I love that success means more than just putting your head down and getting the work done. Everyone is empowered and encouraged to take a step back, look at the bigger picture, and decide what’s really important for our consumers to know about us. It allows us to not get too in the weeds and be the best team we can be.
