More about Homebot:

Problem we’re solving:

The US homeownership market is the largest asset class in the world at $30 trillion but is essentially an “unmanaged” asset that causes homeowners to leave billions of dollars on the table every year. At the same time, loan officers and real estate agents spent $20 billion a year on desperate attempts to maintain mindshare and loyalty with their past clients in hopes of gaining more repeat and referral business.

Our solution:

​Each month, Homebot delivers a personalized report to homeowners that tracks home value, mortgages and market conditions, advice about when to buy or sell, when to refinance, when to drop mortgage insurance, how to save by strategically paying principal payments, and even estimates potential rental income from Airbnb. Homebot helps homeowners build wealth faster by making them feel empowered and confident about making smart home finance decisions.

But the only way a homeowner can get Homebot is from their lender or real estate agent, and this is where we make magic happen. Homebot respects the existing relationships between homeowner, lender and real estate agent and becomes a machine for generating repeat and referral business while creating incredible loyalty by providing something their clients actually love to receive - every month.

It’s definitely a game-changer and we are truly making an impact. Join our team and be a part of something big!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

My career has grown exponentially, in the time I've been at Homebot. While the notion of working for a startup may seem daunting, the ability to "wear multiple hats" has provided me the opportunity to not only expand my knowledge of multiple facets of a business, but to also become well-versed in all the aspects of my personal job category.

Cameron

Finance Manager

What is your vision for the company?

83% of the average homeowner's wealth at retirement comes from home equity. We want consumers to be empowered to build wealth through homeownership. We do this by providing personalized intelligence for all home financing/buying/selling/renting decisions. Our plan is not to help homeowners feel rich but to help them be rich.

Ernie Graham

CEO

What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

We work within the real estate space so we encounter an exorbitant amount of data that needs to be processed such as home valuations, loan data, and parsing user inputted addresses. Efficiently taking an address and turn that into our final product takes a many steps with failure cases along the way can create a tough challenge!
