2022 HW Vanguard: Vanessa Famulener


Vanessa Famulener, president of HomeLight Homes — the overarching umbrella for HomeLight’s flagship financial products, HomeLight Cash Offer and HomeLight Trade-In, as well as the company’s mortgage operations — continues to lead innovation and forge a pivotal change in how homes are bought and sold in the United States, helping to empower top real estate agents and their clients across the country to compete and win.

Famulener has shown incredible resilience in the face of an increasingly uncertain market for homebuyers and sellers. By overseeing the continuous health and expansion of HomeLight’s flagship products, Famulener has guided the business forward with strong leadership and unwavering confidence, allowing HomeLight and its partner agents to grow while other proptech companies retreat.

What has been the secret to your success?

Leading with empathy and tenacity, especially as a working mother. It is a secret that I wish were less of a secret and more mainstream.
