In early 2022, Coltin Walkenhorst was in the market for a new home for his growing family. The Walkenhorst’s had bought once before but with this move, the family was looking to upsize. Coltin found out about Homie through recommendation of a co-worker and was intrigued by how simple the entire process was. After reaching out to Homie, it was nothing but smooth sailing for the Walkenhorst family as they were able to sell their current home for top dollar and then turn around and buy a home in the beautiful cedar valley of Eagle Mountain, Utah.

Simplifying Real Estate

Huge Savings

We saved a whole heck of a lot. Our BAC rebate was over $7,000 and then we saved about $10,000 on sale of the old house. We used that money to buy new appliances.”

Absolute Ease
“I wanted everything in one suite. If I don’t have to have 6 people to be talking to at the same time, I’m all for it.”

Top Notch Agents
“Homie is simple. I didn’t have to do a ton. I got a really good real estate agent who did things right. I’m not too big on meeting up in person, so I never met our agent, Jordan, but she handled everything on the back end and was super responsive. Cody was also amazing.”

What was the best part about using Homie?

The service from the agents was the crown jewel of the experience.”
