Our Mission

Why we're here

Nearly 10 million second homes sit unoccupied for 11 months a year in the U.S.  Meanwhile, millions of people dream of owning and enjoying a second home. To solve this, we created Pacaso, a service to expand second home ownership. We empower people to own a share of a second home, from 1/8 to 1/2, and experience true real estate ownership.

Our Crew

Pacaso employees home shot

Although Pacaso is based in California, we are an intentionally distributed workforce of mission-driven, customer-obsessed tech veterans. No matter where we work, we are dedicated to making Pacaso a household name. To succeed, we need diverse, talented humans from anywhere and everywhere. Join us. It'll be fun.

The story behind Pacaso

Pacaso started with one guy achieving his personal goal of owning a second home. That guy is Austin Allison, tech entrepreneur and now CEO of Pacaso. Austin created a new category of second home ownership to help make the dream possible for more people.
