Higginbotham Real Estate

As an outgrowth of one of the premier home builders in the Midwest, Higginbotham Real Estate has a reserve of institutional knowledge that is uncommon for a real estate company.

Higginbotham Custom Homes & Renovation (Higginbotham), a respected St. Louis-based custom home builder, has re-launched their Real Estate Division to meet the evolving needs of the community in today’s growing residential real estate market. With more than 75 years as a trusted name in home building and renovation in the region, Higginbotham is uniquely positioned to serve both returning and new clients for a broad range of real estate transactions.

The company first joined the St. Louis Association of Realtors® in 1945 as an add-on for custom build clients who needed to sell their existing homes and continues as a Realtor-Broker today to fully meet the needs of its clients.

Continuing with the legacy and founding principles of the Higginbotham brand, Higginbotham Real Estate has expanded to include a Realtor® who is in the family, Sarah Higginbotham; and a mother-daughter team, Laurel Ostertag Arrick and Audrey Arrick. With Elizabeth Higginbotham at the helm as Broker-Officer, Higginbotham Real Estate continues to exceed client expectations.

Higginbotham Real Estate will tap into an extensive network of partners in construction, lending, appraisals, and more, developed over decades in the industry. Real estate clients who need to engage contractors to do repairs before selling or need a quote for a potential renovation during the buying process will have a single partner that can provide a full menu of ancillary services. In addition, Higginbotham’s extensive experience in land acquisition gives the firm a library of knowledge of the St. Louis area, its neighborhoods, and the inventory available.

“As an outgrowth of one of the premier home builders in the Midwest, Higginbotham Real Estate has a reserve of institutional knowledge that is uncommon for a real estate company. Our home building and renovation staff works in tandem with the real estate business to consult on behalf of all of our clients,” said Kent Higginbotham, Owner of Higginbotham Custom Homes & Renovation. “Our Realtors® are knowledgeable and well connected, helping our clients make informed decisions about selling, buying, or investing in real estate. This unparalleled experience helps clients get the best possible result during negotiations, inspections, and closing.”

The Higginbotham Real Estate team is impressive. Laurel is a native Saint Louisan who has been in real estate for more than three decades. She graduated from John Burroughs and has a degree in Marketing from the University of Colorado-Boulder. Audrey graduated from Ladue High School before attending the University of Missouri where she earned a Bachelor’s degree in Hospitality Management. Sarah was born and raised in Saint Louis and graduated from Columbia Christian College. She has been practicing real estate for 5 years, bringing with her not only her knowledge of the St. Louis real estate market, but also the St. Charles market, where she currently resides with her family.

This re-launch comes on the heels of a rebranding by Higginbotham Custom Homes & Renovation as a whole. Higginbotham’s reputation for superb service and quality craftsmanship will translate into a new iteration of its real estate business focused on concierge service and attention to detail.

As tech offices begin to reopen, the workplace could look very different

Avatar

Published

on

The pandemic forced many employees to begin working from home, and, in doing so, may have changed the way we think about work. While some businesses have slowly returned to the office, depending on where you live and what you do, many information workers remain at home.

That could change in the coming months as more people get vaccinated and the infection rate begins to drop in the U.S.

As that happens, it is likely that more offices will reopen. We’ve already heard from major employers like Salesforce, which indicated it will be allowing a percentage of its workforce back to the office this month, starting with the company’s San Francisco headquarters. The CRM giant plans to move slow and follow the government’s lead, allowing 20% capacity at first and hoping to build to 70% over time.

Most companies aren’t the size of Salesforce, which boasts a worldwide workforce of more than 50,000 employees. These smaller companies often don’t control entire skyscrapers, as Salesforce does in San Francisco. That creates complicating factors, including managing people who aren’t willing to be vaccinated, dealing with social distancing and masking, and sharing buildings or floors with other companies.

Even more, many companies have discovered that their employees work just fine at home. And some workers don’t want to waste time stuck on congested highways or public transportation now that they’ve learned to work remotely. But other employees suffered in small spaces or with constant interruptions from family. Those folks may long to go back to the office.

On balance, it seems clear that whatever happens, for many companies, we probably aren’t going back whole-cloth to the prior model of commuting into the office five days a week.

Last August, we spoke to a number of tech company executives about what returning to the office could look like. We recently went back to most of those same executives, as well as a Rhode Island state official and a medical expert we spoke to then to revisit the idea and talk about what’s changed and what work could look like as move slowly toward the post-pandemic era.

The office will never be the same

While their approaches vary, all of the executives I spoke to said that they foresee adopting a hybrid model when they can return in earnest, although there were definitely different interpretations of what that means, and what the office structure will look like.

Digging into digital mortgage lender Better.com’s huge SPAC

Avatar

Published

on

Better.com, a venture-backed digital mortgage lender, announced this morning that it will combine with a SPAC, taking itself public in the second half of 2021. The unicorn’s news comes as the American IPO market is showing signs of fresh life after a modest April.

The Better.com deal comes just over a month after it sold $500 million of its existing shares to SoftBank at a valuation of $6 billion. At the time, TechCrunch described the deal as “further proof” that unsexy industries were able to secure attractive valuations despite their relative lack of pizzazz.

The SoftBank secondary round was hardly Better’s only recent mega-deal; the company raised a $200 million round at a $4 billion valuation in November 2020.


The Exchange explores startups, markets and money. 

Read it every morning on Extra Crunch or get The Exchange newsletter every Saturday.


But the company’s SPAC combination will affix an even higher price than its April round managed, providing the Kleiner Perkins-backed Better with what it describes as a “post-money equity value of approximately $7.7 billion.”

SoftBank is doubling down on Better, putting together a $1.5 billion private investment in the deal’s public equity, or PIPE, in effect repricing its own preceding investment. For the Japanese telecom and investing powerhouse, making successive bets in companies at ever-higher prices is essentially gospel. So, don’t read too much into the commitment.

As with all SPAC combinations, we have a pile of new data from the company that is going public as part of the transaction. So, this morning, we’re getting our hands dirty.

Our goals are simple: We want to understand whether Better is a weak business, an acceptably strong business, or a great business. To get there, we’ll have to start by digging into how the company functions. From there, we’ll discuss its valuation stacked against its trailing metrics. We’ll also take a look at its growth expectations and bring in the recent Compass IPO, a company that focuses on a different part of the mortgage market, to see if we can get a better handle on Better’s new valuation.

Ready? The deck is here. Let’s have some fun.

What’s Better.com?

If you have heard of Better but really had no idea what it does before this morning, welcome to the club. Mortgage tech is like pre-kindergarten applications — it applies to a very specific set of folks at a very particular moment. And they care a lot about it. But the rest of us aren’t really aware of its existence.

For the rest of us: Better is an online mortgage lender that aims to offer lower-than-standard fees to consumers looking for credit to help them buy a house. As the company explains on its website, it generates income by selling loans that it helps generate. Per its investor deck, Better also derives top line from selling insurance products.
