Write for Us

Yes, you. We’re always looking for new authors on the Evernest blog.

First things first. We don’t accept any ol’ writer to write for Evernest. We look for two things from our writers:

1. You know real estate, particularly single-family rental investing and property management

2. Or you can demonstrate to us that they can learn quickly and adapt to our voice.

We want your article to be at its best, and we’ll push you to get there. Once accepted, you’ll get extensive feedback from our content managers, and you’ll work closely with a member of our team on revisions.

It’s also rewarding. Thousands of investors, owners, and professionals in Real Estate will read your work, and you’ll also learn a lot in the process—about communicating your ideas, writing, and topics such as rental property investing, property management, and much much more.

If this sounds like something you’re up for, read through the rest of this post BEFORE filling out the form. Cheers!

Who we are

Evernest started at the beginning of the 2008 economic crisis by default. 

When the bottom fell out of the residential housing market, our founder, Matthew Whitaker, was left holding 30 rental houses that he wanted to sell, but couldn’t. So he set out to find a property manager with similar beliefs and management preferences to his own. 

Later that year, Matthew started Evernest and opened our doors for business.

Since 2008, our team has continued growing. From 3 to more than 150 team members dedicated to providing owners the best property management experience around.

What we do

Evernest is an all-in-one real estate services partner for single-family and small multi-family investors, landlords, and owners. We specialize in property management and brokerage services for single-family houses, condos, and small multi-family buildings. We currently manage 6,500+ homes for 3,000+ owners.

What we’ve done

Our team has built an extensive track record in building and managing entire rental property portfolios and acquiring property management companies. 

As of April 2022, we: 


What we’re looking for

You may submit a rough draft, a partial draft, or a short pitch (a paragraph or two summarizing your article and why it matters to our readers) paired with an outline using this google doc (make a copy, first). The more complete your submission is, the better feedback we can give you. Keep in mind that we only accept original content—we do not publish anything that’s been published elsewhere (including on your blog).

Please don’t send us press releases or sales pitches. Just don’t do it.

Before you submit, look at our style guide and recent articles for insight into structuring and formatting your piece, and make sure your submission:

Additional Guidelines to follow:


To get an idea of how we think about the writing process and things writers should keep in mind when making a submission, check out these two articles we really like from A List Apart (again, these are not our own, we just really like their thought process):


What we publish

We publish articles of anywhere between 1,200+ words, depending on the subject matter. 1,500 words are about average.

Articles may be casual in tone and content—great for less-intensive tutorials and posts—or rigorously structured and edited. All should be well-considered explorations of current trends or relevant how-to’s related to the real estate industry.

PLEASE NOTE: We only accept submissions as Google documents so that editors can easily provide feedback and guidance directly within your draft. (Please do not send a ZIP file of assets or Office doc.)
