Build a New Habitat to Jumpstart Your Business Endeavors



Community has never been more important. After quarantining, social distancing, and learning how to keep up with friends and family virtually, community is what keeps us going; we’re all in this together. And part of a community certainly includes the home you live in; we all need a place to call our own.

Although, now more than ever, we’re all yearning to get out of our homes and discover new places. Some of us are renting homes in fun destinations for a change of scenery given remote work flexibility. When looking to purchase a new home, most connect with a real estate agent who knows the market inside and out, so why wouldn’t you consider a similar partnership for your travels? This helps to explain how hospitality and real estate are married together, which inspired a business called Habitats by Kat (HBK).

HBK is a global real estate travel community providing the necessary platforms for entrepreneurs or consultants to build their own business and brand. HBK is the first travel community, or better yet “HABITAT,” that focuses on real estate. HBK’s role is to remain behind the scenes while supporting consultants to become their own CEO. The company believes that each entrepreneur should be empowered to develop their own brand voice, and they are your secret toolbox. 

The founders, who also happen to be twin sisters, are Kat Friedman and Sam Heyer. Kat is based in New York City, and Sam is based in Denver, CO. They are also both in real estate and are passionate about helping others build their own businesses and become their own CEOs. Kat worked in the hotel industry for almost ten years and held different sales and client service roles that could be applied to the world of real estate. Sam worked in the public relations industry, also for almost ten years, and is now utilizing her communication and leadership skills to mentor others who are ready to take a risk.

HBK offers consultants (and in turn their clientele bases) access to vacation properties, hotels, resorts group event needs, and epic experiences. Both Kat and Sam consider themselves full service agents in both real estate and hospitality and love helping others build their own businesses with our habitat backing them (all behind the scenes). 

Affordable pricing is also offered to HBK consultants to start their businesses. They have packages that are very straightforward that consumers can relate to based on where they are in becoming their own boss. The key items offered in all packages are access to global real estate, hotels, resorts, your own website, business insurance, digital marketing, social media support, ongoing mentorship from Kat and Sam, and more.

  • The Side Hustler Package: $500 On-Boarding Fee, $75 Dollars Monthly and 70% Split
  • The Aspiring Entrepreneur: $1,500 On-Boarding Fee, $100 Dollars Monthly and 80% Split
  • The CEO: $1,500 On-Boarding Fee, $150 Dollars Monthly and 90% Split

Everyone settles for comfort and access. That is why many entrepreneurs innovate their services. Kat and Sam are some of the very few exceptional people who use background experiences and wit to elevate their capacity in providing fast, efficient, and honest service.
