Mark Schlosser with Landis on Radio

Head of Sales Mark Schlosser with Landis joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to discuss financial literacy, fair housing and how their rent to own program creates homeowners. Schlosser joins host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment.

New to the Atlanta market, Landis is a social impact company before anything else. The company prioritizes providing financial literacy and fair housing to homebuyers. Via one-on-one instruction and a mobile app, Landis provides a step-by-step program for homeownership based on a rent-to-own model.

For potential homeowners struggling to qualify for mortgages, Landis purchases a home for them and over 12 to 24 months, coaches them to purchase the home back and achieve the American dream of homeownership.

Schlosser said, “Everything we really believe in backs into that core mission of [homeownership].”

Frontiers for a hot topic in real estate, Landis investors include the National Association of REALTORS® and Sequoia as well as celebrity investors Jay-Z and Will Smith.

With a career doused in technology and start-up experience, Schlosser began to question his purpose and career path. Schlosser personally wanted to transition to a social impact company such as Landis to achieve his life and career goals.

“It’s a mission that means something to every single person at the company,” Schlosser said. “What homeownership is means something slightly different to every single person but it’s an authentic feeling.”

For clients in need of credit repair assistance, Landis provides one-on-one coaching to provide personalization in a company largely associated with technology. With this kind of interaction, there is increased accountability and education.

The Landis mobile app provides valuable resources such as articles on financial literacy and personalized client information. Articles cover what bills to prioritize, how to improve a credit score and more for experienced and new learners that reflect the latest credit algorithms.

The general requirements to participate in Landis programs are a 550-credit score, $30,000 in annual income and no recent bankruptcies in the past six months. The company also requires a 2 to 3% down payment to ensure the program’s participants are invested in becoming mortgage-ready.

With feet on the ground ready to go in Atlanta, Landis encourages all agents and brokers to contact the company via email at or Schlosser directly at for additional information. Clients are encouraged to contact Landis at to purchase a home.

  1. I understand I would be saving toward the purchase of a home. The monthly lease amount is extremely high.I was interested only because the down payment was lower than trying to purchase.

  2. I lost my house during covid and its been hard to find a place would accept someone who has been evicted. So my family has been separated…I miss my children and I drive two hours to see them when Im not working to get out of this sleeping on a friend couch..
