                                      Our Story… so far

                                      A tale of curiosity, experience, trial, error, success and growth into an evolving marketplace.

                                      Betterview was founded in 2014 by David Lyman and David Tobias. David Tobias was born into the insurance industry having grown up in the family business of performing property inspections. Realizing that the number one most problematic part of any property was the roof, he teamed up with his fellow Bay Area friend, David Lyman, to find a solution. David Lyman is a repeat startup founder with a deep background in enterprise software.
