2020 HW Vanguard: Ernie Graham

Graham-Ernie-2020-Vanguard
Ernie Graham, CEO, Homebot

Ernie Graham is a life-long technology entrepreneur who has been a leader at multiple startups and public companies.

His real estate career led Graham to envision a mortgage industry that extends far beyond the transaction—an industry where loan officers are the trusted advisors their clients rely on to make informed home finance decisions throughout the entire homeownership lifecycle. 

In 2015, Graham cofounded Homebot to make this vision a reality every day by helping lenders create client-for-life relationships. Graham has fostered the company’s significant growth, with thousands of lenders and millions of homeowners now engaging through Homebot each month. Additionally, over the past six months as the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Graham pivoted the 50-person company to 100% work-from-home almost overnight, all while remaining focused on helping lenders and real estate agents maintain engagement with their clients. 

He introduced product enhancements that would best meet the needs of loan officers and their clients during these unprecedented times of stay-at-home orders, a ban on in-person home showings and all-time low interest rates. For loan officers to remain successful, it became more imperative than ever to stay connected with their past clients and new leads. 

Under Graham’s leadership, Homebot facilitated this connection by providing personalized, actionable insights that empower consumers to build wealth through homeownership. 

Graham has built a team of agile and growth-oriented leaders who have tackled new challenges during these unprecedented times and continue driving Homebot’s mission forward in rapidly changing market conditions.
