Our team is a talented and diverse group of people with varied backgrounds and experiences that come together to create something great.

  • Innovators who have developed exciting technologies for other industries and bring that know-how to help our customers sell their homes
  • Operators who have the experience to grow and scale businesses while not losing sight of the highest priority – our customers

Pronounced “Ah-VES-Doh”, Avesdo’s name comes from the merging of two Latin words: Ave (“Ah-Vey”) which means “Hail”, as in the greeting, and Domus (“Doh-Moose”) which means Home, as in where you live.  Ave-Domus was then shortened to “Avesdo”, for Welcome Home.

Since its founding in 2016, Avesdo has continually responded to the market’s need for regulatory compliant solutions that help developers and their project marketing partners sell homes and manage their transactions. As an organization focused on providing efficiencies and governance through cloud-based workflow solutions, its portfolio of services continued to expand.  As an example, in June of 2020, Avesdo enabled the first new home sales transaction that was conducted entirely over the Internet.
