About Pearl

Making our global community a better place

Pearl is a national firm that provides third-party certification of high-performing homes: homes that are healthy, comfortable, resilient, and energy efficient. Pearl’s certification drives demand for these improvements by capturing their value for resale and appraisal. Pearl will transform the residential market by certifying 10% of the U.S. housing stock by 2030. 

Pearl qualifies a network of contractors that improve homes’ performance, and real estate professionals that ensure these homes are properly marketed and valued when sold. When marketed correctly, Pearl Certified homes can add 5% or more to a home’s sale price.

Vision: Pearl Certification will be the global standard for high-performing homes.

Mission: Pearl makes our global community a better place by giving homeowners the tools to improve their homes’ health, comfort, efficiency, resilience — and value.
