Grant Moon is the founder and CEO of Home Captain, one of the fastest growing real estate technology companies in the country.
Upon returning from a tour of duty in Iraq and applying for a VA loan to purchase a home, Moon recognized the difficulties facing borrowers. In an effort to address these issues, Moon created a digital platform that streamlines the origination process, aiding buyers, sellers, real estate agents and lenders in the complex process of purchasing and selling homes. Moon has since received investments from Second Century Ventures, the investment arm of the National Association of Realtors. Additionally, Moon has created national partnerships with Berkshire Hathaway, Exit Realty, Fidelity and the U.S. Department of Defense, to further consumer education and provide technology solutions.
WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU HAVE EVER RECEIVED?
“My first assignment after being commissioned as an officer in the Army was to lead a 40-man rifle platoon. These men had just gotten back from a deployment. The platoon sergeant, told me, ‘Sir, when you introduce yourself in front of the formation, be authentic. Show them that you will work harder than them. Hold high standards for yourself and the platoon, and don’t ask them to do anything that you are not willing to do as well. And then, they will want to follow you instead of being ordered to follow you.’”
