CUPERTINO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Intero, a Berkshire Hathaway affiliate and wholly owned subsidiary of  HomeServices of America, Inc., is proud to announce a partnership with Abodu, an innovative housing solution company, to provide Intero clients with beautiful prefabricated accessory dwelling units (ADUs) and concierge-level service.

With space at a premium for most Bay Area residents, the need for inventive living solutions has never been higher. Couple this with upcoming housing laws—such as Senate Bill 9 (SB 9), which is paving the way for backyard homes to help tackle California’s housing crisis, and you can see why this partnership between Intero and Abodu makes so much sense. This new partnership will allow Intero agents to help their current and past clients quickly connect with Abodu so they can understand the benefits of installing an ADU and determine if Abodu’s products will fit their specific requirements.

“With changes in legislation over the past few years, ADUs are going to play a more critical role in the real estate equation,” said Scott Chase, Chief Operating Officer of Intero. “Here at Intero, we analyze these changes and look for partners who can provide solutions that differentiate our agents from the competition and improve the client experience. Abodu is an innovator in the ADU space and they are able to provide products that can bring value to the clients working with an Intero agent.”

“As Abodu continues to build housing across the Western US, partnerships with housing industry leaders like Intero allows us to reach more homeowners with our fast and easy ADU experience,” said John Geary, Co-Founder and CEO of Abodu. “This partnership combines Intero’s robust real estate agent network with Abodu’s turnkey ADU concierge service to guide the homeowners through the process of building an ADU in their backyards.”

Abodu currently provides three standardized but customizable options including a studio, one bedroom and two-bedroom layout. All selections come with timeless aesthetics based on Scandinavian design and premium materials.

For more information on Abodu’s products, please reach out to your local Intero real estate agent in our 23 offices throughout the Bay Area. They will connect you with Intero’s dedicated representative who can help you rethink your backyard’s potential, provide a tailored quote fitting your specific needs, and manage the entire process—from blueprint to delivery—of your new space.
