Our story starts
with a condo purchase

The idea for Doormat was born when Robert, one of our co-founders, bought his condo and experienced first-hand how antiquated the property closing process was. As a first time home buyer, the excitement of his offer being accepted was quickly dampened as he worked with a traditional law firm to close the deal. His experience was riddled with endless email chains, a confusing process, and unclear pricing.

As a software engineer, his problem-solving mindset knew there had to be a better way, so he decided to build it. He brought on Ben (a real estate lawyer) and Joel (an experienced entrepreneur) as co-founders, who had both experienced the pain of the outdated industry and immediately bought into the Doormat vision. Together they set out to bring real estate law into the 21st century.
