With a 50% monthly client engagement rate, lenders and agents leverage Homebot to maximize their purchase/refi and repeat/referral business.
Graham’s professional excellence has been recognized by the industry. In the last year, Homebot was a finalist at the NAR iOi Summit, claimed the grand prize at the Realogy FWD Innovation Summit and was named a HousingWire Tech100 winner.
Homebot has experienced significant growth fueled significantly by Graham’s commitment and leadership. With more than 800% customer growth across the past twelve months, Homebot is now helping millions of consumers manage their home equity and build wealth.

Graham continues to foster excellence and promote innovation, building a team of dedicated trailblazers who share the Homebot vision of helping consumers maximize their wealth through homeownership.
Graham ensures Homebot is growing with the community it serves by dispelling the misconception that technology should aim to replace industry experts. Everything Homebot does is working towards reinforcing the crucial relationship between buyers, lenders, and agents. Graham is the leader behind this mission.
