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.

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!
