Atmos is a managed marketplace that allows homebuyers to custom build a home from design to move in with our all-in-one platform. Below is our recent interview with Nicholas Donahue, CEO at Atmos:
Q: How would you convince the reader to start using Atmos?
A: Custom homebuilding is a complicated and scattered process that requires homebuyers to search separately for realtors, available lots, builders and architects. At Atmos, this information is centralized and homebuyers are assigned a project manager to walk them through the whole process.
Q: Who would be your ideal user and why?
A: There are so many people that have considered building a home but always thought it was out of reach because it was too complicated, too time-consuming or too costly—if that’s you, check us out at our website.
Q: You’ve recently raised $4,000,000 in Seed funding; can you tell us something more?
A: Since our soft launch about four months ago, we’re already started working on our first dozen homes in Raleigh-Durham and Charlotte, North Carolina. More than half of these homebuyers originally planned to buy an existing home but switched to custom building when they couldn’t find what they wanted on the market. Now they’re building custom designs including a dog shower, a Buddhist Temple, a half-court basketball and a variety of home offices.
Q: What are your goals for the future? Do you have any new features in the pipeline?
A: We are focused on building out the next version of our platform, focused around the visualization experience. The ability for you to see every aspect of the home and the changes you want to make, live on the fly. It’s been hard for people to crack the code of how to do this at scale and we believe we have.
