Our Leadership

Adam Pollack, co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Accept.inc
Adam Pollack
Co-founder & CEO

Before Adam left Harvard to change real estate for the better, he started his business career with his twin brother. Together at eleven years old, they started a hauling company that was featured as a cover story in the WSJ. At Harvard, he studied Social Theory, French and Spanish, but spent most of his free time boxing. Upon leaving school, he and his fellow founders participated in the esteemed Y-Combinator startup accelerator and thereafter won the backing of several prominent Silicon Valley Capitalists. He was also awarded the honor of being a Thiel Fellow.

Fun Fact: Adam once ran a marathon with no training and finished last — he now calls himself an avid marathoner.

Nick Friedma, co-founder and Chief Operating Officer
Nick Friedman
Co-founder & COO

Nick is Accept.inc’s Co-founder and COO. When Nick is not managing Accept.inc’s home purchase and mortgage funding operations, he enjoys beatboxing, minigolf, sour beers, and giving Ted Talks. Nick studied mathematics and economics before dropping out of Williams College to co-found Accept.inc. Nick also participated in Y-Combinator and is a licensed loan officer in Colorado.

Fun Fact: Nick once lost terribly at bowling, watched videos of professional bowlers online, and bowled 9 strikes in a row to start his next game -- he now learns every sport, instrument, or art form from YouTube.

Ian Perrex, co-founder and Chief Technical Officer
Ian Perrex
Co-founder & CTO

Ian is Accept.inc’s Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer. Ian completed a master’s at Stanford where he studied AI, then founded and sold a startup that helps Fortune 500 companies manage their data. When he is not building the software infrastructure behind upgrading the way homes are bought and sold in the United States, Ian is either hiking in Montana or pursuing his Doctorate in Technology at Purdue.

Fun Fact: Ian is just terrible at remembering names, but uses sticky notes to help. His mirror at home has one that says “Ian”.

In addition to being a licensed loan officer in six states, Maura is a Colorado native, a proud wife, mom, Irish Wolfhound lover, and VW van aficionado.

Fun Fact:
Maura was the loan officer, processor, and underwriter for Accept.inc’s first transaction. She is the first person to ever upgrade a mortgage buyer to an all-cash buyer in residential real estate.

Celeste Lo
Director of Cash Transactions

Celeste serves as Accept.inc’s Director of Cash Transactions where she works closely with agents to make the closing process a delightful experience. With over 15 years in real estate for one of the nation’s leading agents, Celeste has virtually seen and done it all. Running, boxing, and tackling home improvements around the house are her favorite outlets. She loves being active with her husband and then kicking back with their English bulldog Wally.

Fun Fact: Celeste was also one of the first buyers to ever be upgraded to an all-cash buyer. With Accept.inc (formerly BoardRE), Celeste beat out several other cash buyers and won her Colorado dream home. She joined Accept.inc shortly thereafter to help others do the same.
