About Stavvy

Stavvy is a digital transaction platform built for real estate professionals. By connecting people, systems, and processes together, Stavvy modernizes the real estate transaction through collaboration, reliability, and choice. Stavvy is transforming real estate transactions into a swift, secure, data-driven experience. After two decades in the title and settlement industry, Stavvy’s founder wanted to change the paper mortgage process and the complexities experienced within it.

Stavvy was born with a vision to bring collaboration, reliability, and choice to an otherwise archaic and fragmented process. While Stavvy powers digital transactions when, where, and how customers want, the real goal of Stavvy is to transform transactions into swift and secure, data-driven experiences; moving real estate beyond documents.
