Our Story

We got bit by the real estate bug in college and it hasn’t left us since.

We started investing in rental properties, mini-storage, and commercial office buildings on a small scale. But, one big passion that has grown for us over the years is learning how to leverage technology to help us do things easier, more quickly, and get better results.

Building our first real estate website back in 2003 that began to generate free motivated seller leads online within weeks of it going live. Since then we’ve refined our marketing systems, website platforms, and overall strategy on what it takes to drive leads online in multiple different industries and have brought in over 1,253,267 real estate related leads online in the past 5 years alone.

If you want to see how Carrot can help you on your path to success and provide you with a consistent and predictable pipeline of highly motivated leads then take an interactive demo today.

The Story of Carrot.com | About Us

We Love Marketing, Technology, & Helping Entrepreneurs

Real estate is our roots, but marketing, technology, and entrepreneurship are our passion. We decided to take that passion, experience, and knowledge and create the best website system for real estate investors that does the important things and none of the fluff.

If you’re looking to finally have a real estate investor or agent website that gets search engine rankings and drives you free seller and buyer leads, to be able to take full control of your site from start to finish so your brand is unique to your target market and does not feel like just another template website, to generate leads the RIGHT way and be easy for you to run yourself, you’re looking in the right place.

Carrot Vision

Our Business Idea

Our business idea is to provide a platform for Real Estate Professionals to become the authority in their markets through sustainable marketing tools that enable them to get off of the marketing hamster wheel grind.

Carrot Mission

Our Core Values

Be a Beacon of Positivity & Possibility
Have Fun & Be Different
Take Initiative & Show You Care
Craft Amazing Experiences
Adapt, Evolve, & Always Improve
Add Humanity To Business

The Carrot Company Advantage

As you know, there’s no shortage of real estate investor and agent website templates on the market. Prices range from $1,500 upfront and $100/month to the low end of $10/month. But we felt there was a gap and real estate investors and agents haven’t been served with what they truly need.

Where all of those other systems make up for cool features like deal analyzers and other fancy doodads, most of them lack the important things. After all, all of those fancy features aren’t worth much if you can’t get consistent traffic to your site, build credibility from your site when they get there, and convert them to customers from there. Many of those systems are great, but most investors and agents just don’t need all of those features or added expense.

We focus on building clean, professional, flexible, and effective websites for real estate investors, agents, and entrepreneurs in other industries as well, to help you grow your business, gain brand identity, and live the lifestyle you want to live.

In Loving Memory of Adrian Nez

On September 30, 2021, the world lost a very special soul. Adrian was a veteran Carrot team member, an amazing father, a loving husband, a loyal friend, and a follower of Christ who showed his care for others in incredible ways. Adrian was a servant of everyone he came in contact with, whether they were Carrot customers, strangers, family members, or friends. He was always on the lookout for ways to bless others & bring a smile to someone’s face. Here on the Carrot team, we are committed to honoring Adrian’s memory by continuing to serve others in the example that Adrian set. We love you, Adrian! You’ll be missed, but never forgotten. 🧡


We strive to create honest and valuable marketing that we would be happy to receive ourselves. This requires careful strategy, attention to detail, and never half-assing it.

Stephen loves the psychology of how people use the internet and how to improve communication to help others make decisions that impact their lives. Home is Tahoe and when not snowboarding in the fresh pow you’ll find me on the closest racetrack, playing some Xbox with my girlfriend, or at a venue enjoying some live music.


Video Marketing Specialist

When I’m not behind a camera or an editing screen, I can be found planning trips with my beautiful wife, having overly choreographed Nerf battles with my son, building anything from dog houses to porches to wooden swords, and occasionally saving the world (again) with a PlayStation controller in hand. I enjoy videography, photography, design, and anything crafty or “maker.” I pride myself on my collection of EDC gear and can almost guarantee to have the most in my pockets of anyone else in the room at any given time.
