Our Team 🔱

 

Our team is united by our strong conviction that humans still matter and that no prospect, customer, client, patient or candidate should ever have difficulty in finding a real and immediately available person within your business. All the technology we design and engineer is built upon a foundation of authenticity. We believe that commerce, no matter what form it comes in, is ultimately about humans serving humans. So, we are compelled to leverage technology that, to the best of our ability, combats automation and enables connectedness that preserves the human condition.

Idealistic? Maybe. Worthwhile? Absolutely!

 A Posthumous Note of Appreciation:
We pay special thanks to and honor the memory of Larry Hopfenspirger, founder of Hopfenspirger Realty. Larry was an amazing real estate developer, entrepreneur, and was one of our earliest investors. Sadly, Larry passed away in 2016 after a battle with cancer. Larry, we hope the fishing is great in heaven!
