We Are Carrot
We’re here to add humanity to business and help you regain time for the things that matter.
Starting in college we got bit by the real estate bug 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.

We Love Marketing, Technology, And Helping Entrepreneurs
Real estate was 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.
“Add humanity to business and help people regain time for the things that matter.”
Our Core Values
- Be a Beacon of Positivity and Possibility
- Have Fun and Be Different
- Take Initiative and Show You Care
- Craft Amazing Experiences
- Adapt, Evolve, & Always Improve
The Carrot 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. We even share our data to prove it.
