Our mission.

We believe that everyone should have a chance at wealth creation through housing. No renter should feel the anxiety of the wealth gap widening  between them and homeowners. And every renter should have an opportunity to build for their future.

Kenneth Luna
Our vision.

At Ascend, we’re building a new way to rent – a model that values and rewards renter as partners and co-investors by ensuring access to the wealth creation possibilities of real estate, without ever having to purchase a home.

We believe this journey isn’t just about housing. It’s about community, health, and pride. We are building invested communities with you, for you.

Florian Schmitz

And our core values.


We enable families to generate wealth around housing for a better future.


We align renters and investors to create synergetic growth outcomes that make everyone better off.


We will revive a real sense of community in neighborhoods, and cooperation for a civil society.

Building wealth together.

“This will buy me some time to build my savings account as well as my credit score. Thank you for making me feel like ‘Family” and not just another transaction.”

Latrice B.

“We thought we were just in a no-win situation, paying rent for five years and nothing to show for it! Knowing you normally don’t even get your security deposit back!”

Cheryl G.
Atlanta, GA

“We had already decided that we were not going to purchase the home we were in at the time and we were just waiting to build enough of a down payment to purchase another home on the open market. Ascend helped to speed up the process.”
