2019 HW Vanguard: Drew Uher

HomeLight Founder and CEO

Drew Uher, HomeLight’s founder and CEO, has been a tireless leader for HomeLight since its founding in 2012. His most unique characteristic is to effectively balance deep understanding of the business across nearly every functional area – marketing, product, engineering, finance, sales and operations – with strategic vision.

Under Uher’s leadership, HomeLight is now known as the destination for home buyers and sellers to find the best real estate agent via its industry leading agent matching platform.

HomeLight has assisted with well over $17 billion in real estate business with thousands of real estate agents nationwide and served hundreds of thousands of clients. It has seen revenues increase by 4300% over the last four years and, on average, introduced a client to a top agent every two minutes in 2019.

Uher has grown HomeLight from just a few employees to over 180 with offices in San Francisco, Scottsdale, Brooklyn and Seattle.

And HomeLight has had a transformational year under Uher’s leadership in 2019. In addition to growing its core agent matching business, HomeLight evolved and expanded its offering to a full suite of options, fundamentally changing the way people transact real estate.

This year, HomeLight launched its Closing Services division, providing title and escrow services to agents and home sellers; announced its simple sale product, designed to match sellers with the hundreds of iBuyers across the U.S.; launched its agent services division to provide innovative products and services to its network of agents and acquired Eave.

What has been your secret to success?

“Our team is our biggest advantage. We hire people who are not only experts in their respective fields but also who are all around great people to work with. HomeLight’s success is a direct result of putting people first.”
