Job Description

What is Homie? 

Homie is everything that 90’s slang implies, and yes, we all call each other “Homie”. We are a group of hard-working, friendly people focused on disrupting the Real Estate Industry by simplifying the process and saving our customers (on average) $10,000. 

Homie launched in 2015 and has grown to be the #1 listing broker in the state of Utah. Our full-stack software platform (website and mobile app) streamlines the process from contract to close, eliminating high fees and commissions along the way. With real estate, home loans, and insurance services, Homie is disrupting an industry and making buying and selling a home a more simple, enjoyable, and affordable option. 

Homie’s Marketing Engine engages interested customers so all our professionals spend ALL of their time doing one thing - helping the customer. No prospecting, no schmoozing, and no back scratching. Our success in Utah has led to expansions in Arizona (2019), Nevada (2020), Idaho (2020), and Colorado (2020). Our ambitions certainly don't stop here; join our team as we continue to disrupt the home-buying experience and change the real estate industry nationwide!

  • Disruption: Real Estate is ready for improvement; time to change it! Come build with us
