About Stessa


Stessa co-founders Heath Silverman and Jonah Schwartz have always shared a passion for both technology and investing. Together, they have founded numerous technology companies as well as a real estate investment firm focused on residential property in the greater SF Bay Area.

As part-time investors with full-time jobs, Heath and Jonah quickly realized that consistent success in real estate investing requires an incredible amount of time and energy. With each new acquisition, their portfolio became more challenging to manage. Even with property management handling the day-to-day operations, there were always pressing issues to address. The devil is often in the details, and unfortunately a lack of clarity and transparency is all too common when it comes to real estate. To top it off, tools to help just don’t exist. It was mindblowing: while most equity investors rely on regular optimization through actively managed funds or robo-advisors, why don’t real estate investors expect the same?

After an extensive deep-dive on a property resulted in a number of discoveries that nearly doubled the value of a multifamily building, Heath and Jonah were inspired to build a scalable technology solution to pass the same portfolio optimization insights to all income property owners. Using dashboard reporting, real-time data analytics, and intelligent automation, they knew it was possible to reduce complexity, increase transparency, and save investors both time and money.

Stessa was built from the ground-up with the investor in mind to take care of monitoring and analyzing the details so you don’t have to.


Stessa was founded by seasoned technology executives based out of San Francisco who have started multiple companies together and have a combined thirty years experience working with investment properties.
