About Us

Here at Purlin Co., we know how difficult buying a home can be. Finding the right a home takes far too long using traditional web apps. Then, your choice is often snapped up by someone else before you can even tour it. That’s why we ditched rigid filter bubbles, which constrain and lengthen your search, and developed Purlin, our friendly AI assistant.

Purlin chats with you to understand your real-life needs, like your commute, financial budget, and design preferences. She carefully considers your individual situation and presents you with personalized home matches, each featuring a specific match score so you can quickly compare options.

With her help, you’ll find your dream home in a matter of minutes, tour it before the week is out, and make an offer before you know it.

Our Catalyst

We noticed that homebuyers are struggling with an unnecessarily complex search and decision-making process.

Our Mission

We want to make it easy for you to find and purchase a home you love.

Our Solution

With machine learning and artificial intelligence, we sidestepped traditional filter bubbles to create a personalized experience that protects your privacy.

Our Promise

Purlin, our friendly AI assistant, will help you find your dream home in a matter of minutes and make an offer in days—without any fuss or bother.
