As an organization, we believe in promoting environmentalism and doing our part to action and support sustainable living. Bōde significantly reduces the carbon footprint of the home transaction experience through creating a completely digital and convenient process for homeowners.
Taking both the seller and buyer side necessary paperwork into consideration, the total package of paperwork needed for a home transaction adds up to approximately 120 pages of paper!!
With Bōde, the process can be done almost entirely digitally. All the necessary documents are able to be completed quickly and easily using the Bōde platform, saving time for homeowners and minimizing the impact on the environment.
We believe in a modern and sustainable approach to real estate – empowering homeowners with transparent data, intelligent tools and connecting people directly to transact themselves through our marketplace.
Not only saving them substantially in commissions, but also eliminating the waste from the traditional way.
Because the planet is also our home!
TreeEra helps individuals and businesses reduce their carbon footprint and combat the effects of climate change by community-funding the planting of trees.
At Bōde, we know that no matter where you’re moving—unless you work for NASA—your home address will always end “Planet Earth”. And without that larger home, none of our small ones matter. So, rather than just thanking you, we also plant 100 trees in your name when you successfully sell your house. They’ll sequester about 7.5 tons of CO2, offsetting most of your move’s environmental impact—the boxes, the packing tape, even your moving vehicle’s carbon emissions.
We know Bōde can’t be the future of home buying and selling, without helping sustain that future. So think of it as a housewarming gift for you… that’s also homecooling gift for the planet.

Frogbox creates an environmental and convenient solution to moving. Instead of using a million cardboard boxes (ok we know that’s an exaggeration but it feels this way when you’re doing it) that will ultimately end up being used once and never again, you can utilize Frogbox for eco-friendly reusable totes that easily store all your household belongings. Frogbox reduces waste during a move by delivering everything you will need, picking it up when you are done with it, and then reusing!
