What does it mean to be a Homie? 

Being a Homie means compassionately looking out for others, doing the right thing even if it's the hard thing, and showing up as your true, authentic self. At Homie, we're a friendly group of curious dreamers and expert operators who believe the status ain't quo. For too long, the way homes have been bought and sold has been outdated, costly, and overcomplicated. We're here to change that. Through a combination of technology and expert, full-service agent support, Homie is simplifying the real estate process and eliminating high fees and commissions.

Homie launched in 2015. Five years later, we're one of the fastest-growing technology companies in the country and the #1 listings brokerage in the great state of Utah. With real estate, home loans, and insurance services under one roof, Homie is disrupting an industry and paving the way for what real estate can, and should, become. We're on a mission to make homeownership affordable, easy, and accessible for all – and we're just getting started.

Disruption: Real estate is ready. The time is now.
