About Us - Sparrow

About Sparrow

Our What

Simply put, Sparrow is the next generation single-family home rental company. We offer truly exceptional homes in prime neighborhoods to the growing share of Americans who choose to lease a house. Worry-free. Mortgage- free. Now that’s a great way of life.

Our How

At Sparrow, we buy only top-quality homes and renovate each one to an even more beautiful standard using sustainable materials. Our tech-enabled platform focuses on excellent resident care and allows us to provide a connected, seamless, positive living experience for our residents. What good is a nice place to live without great service to back it up?

Our Why

Sparrow is here to create happiness – one resident and one home at a time. We understand that our residents are looking for more space, pet-friendly yards, and access to good schools and jobs. So we’re on a mission to give them the worry-free lifestyle they deserve. See, with us, you don’t have to own your home to call it home.

Our Who

Sparrow is a group of seasoned real estate pros with decades of experience in acquiring, leasing, and managing homes. We’re proud to be a diverse team, with women and minorities comprising about 70% of our total employee base and 90% of our senior leadership. Our team members embrace our service-minded philosophy and “kindness first” culture – because that’s our thing.

Our Where

Sparrow operates in 10 markets across the southern United States. But Scottsdale, Arizona is where you’ll find our "Home Office." (The term corporate headquarters is way too stuffy for us.)

Our Name

Sparrow – that’s our spirit animal. The Sparrow lives light, flies freely, and works hard to ensure comfort and stability in its community. We couldn’t think of a more fitting totem for how we enhance our residents’ lives. Happy nesting!
