Our Story

It all started when our CEO, Jeff, was seeking money for one of his businesses…No, wait. We’re getting ahead of ourselves. Let’s try again:

It all started when a kid named Jeff was growing up in Brooklyn in a two-bedroom apartment with his family. Even though it was a small apartment, things were good. But it seemed to him that a lot of his friends who had houses to live in also had parents who were worried about money a lot.

That “house rich, cash poor” realization stuck with him for a long time. Longer than he’d care to admit. Flash forward several decades to when one of our co-founders Max Campion approached Jeff with an insight that many young up and coming Americans with stable incomes were suffering from the same challenges that Jeff’s family witnessed back years ago.

As a serial entrepreneur over many years, Jeff often was looking for investors for one of his companies. Investors give money to guys like him in exchange for a little bit of ownership. This is money they hope will grow, but it’s also possible that the company tanks and they lose it.

Meanwhile, homeowners — who actually have a physical, tangible asset—need to borrow money for things they want to do in life. And that brings more debt burden, worry, and stress, so the American Dream can sometimes become more like an American Nightmare.

It didn’t make sense to them: why can’t someone treat homeowners like the CEOs of their own families, and invest in that home’s future value? Then that got them thinking that maybe they and some other smart, caring people (maybe homeowners themselves) should start a company to help other homeowners do that.

And so we did. We call it Hometap.

She makes sure we’re happy and we have everything we need to deliver our best work.

Andrew Vassallo
Andrew Vassallo

VP, Capital

Anyone who's balanced a budget knows finances can be…complicated. Andrew has made it his business to know, and that's why we put him in charge of capital operations. A background in investment banking and venture capital helps—so does the fact that he was Co-founder and CEO of start-up Spogo.

Recruiter

Ann-Marie scours resumes, checks references, and conducts interviews to find the best-of-the-best people to join Hometap.

Fortunately, she has more than a decade of experience, making her a recruitment puzzle wizard.

Charlie Vrettos
Charlie Vrettos

Principal Software Engineer

Perhaps Charlie was destined for greatness given his innate ability to assemble pretty much anything. Or maybe it's just that he works hard. Either way, we're glad to have him at Hometap, where he, in his own humble words, "Builds stuff. Digital stuff." He's the one building what you see on our platform; making sure you have a flawless, secure, and seamless user experience.

Driven, optimistic, and just plain-old nice, Dan’s motivation to help homeowners informs every task he tackles. But when Dan gets home, it’s relaxation all the way.

Dan Burnett
Dan Burnett

Director of Capital Operations

Despite being named the “Most Proficient at Boxing Out for a Rebound” as part of his 8th grade basketball team, Dan’s NBA career didn’t quite take off like his career in operations. As Director of Capital Operations, Dan helps us make investments in as many homes as possible. He also keeps tabs on all of those investments.

Senior Data Scientist

Taking an analytical, meticulous, and open-minded approach to work makes for a great data scientist—and that’s Greg to a T. Whether analyzing Hometap’s data sets for key insights and trends or building predictive models, he loves nothing more than getting creative to solve a deeply technical problem—the more nuanced, the better.

Jeff Glass
Jeff Glass

CEO

Jeffrey is our CEO and a well-qualified one at that. Having successfully built five (!) companies in his career—not to mention an impressive record as Managing Director at Bain Capital—there's no one we'd rather have at the head of Hometap than him. He's a natural entrepreneur, and nothing thrills him more than creating something that didn't exist before.

Jeff, an Investment Analyst, majored in economics. But he also minored in art history and computer science. With this multi-disciplined background, he crunches numbers and scrutinizes data to see if homeowners and Hometap are a good fit. He’s the first step in the Hometap Investment process, working closely with our investment team to make sure any offers make everyone better off.

Her role as Investment Operations Manager didn’t come with puppies, but she's a pro at putting out fires. Kasey works tirelessly to ensure your application is in tip-top shape before our underwriting team reviews it. She’s also the one who ensures your investment is funded.

Kylee Galer

Office Manager

If you think offices just “run themselves,” you haven’t met Kylee. From restocking supplies, including much-needed snacks, to placing orders and assisting teams with administrative duties, she enforces order in the Hometap office. It’s kind of like her childhood dream of being a police officer, only with slightly less action.

Lindsey Connors

Customer Experience Designer

Lindsey once won the Boston University Ad Lab Award for “Seeing The Big Picture & The Smaller Ones Too.” It’s that dual thinking that allows her, as Hometap’s customer experience designer, to bring new, engaging ideas to life on the web and in print.

Martha’s artistic talent was spotted young: she was named 1992’s "Best Artist" in her preschool. Then came the Internet and Martha swapped the crayons for a stylus. She’s the brains behind our website design, making sure it’s easy to use and looks good, too.

Matt Campo
Matt Campo

Senior Accountant

Matt sees accounting as similar to solving a large puzzle. We’re not sure what puzzle includes the stress of audits, but we’ll take his word. In addition to financial modeling and maintaining “the books,” Matt is a pro bartender. If we had to guess, his signature cocktail is the “Month-End Manhattan”—the perfect drink for getting through even the hairiest monthly closing.

Maxwell Campion

Senior Investment Manager

As an Investment Manager and one of the original thinkers behind the Hometap concept, Max understands why a product like Hometap is so needed today, and works with homeowners to determine how we can work together. He likes to think he's known for being a scratch golfer, but he's perhaps more famous for the fact that he watched every episode of "Seinfeld" before the age of 10.

Molly Smith

Application Specialist

As Application Specialist, Molly helps homeowners put together and complete their applications, ensuring our other teams have everything needed to put together an investment estimate as quickly and accurately as possible.

Nishanth Manjunatha
Nishanth Manjunatha

Software Engineer

Nishanth started at Hometap as an intern with our Software Engineering team while he pursued his Master's Degree at Northeastern University. We’re not sure how he balanced college life with a schedule packed with coding and de-bugging to maintain a flawless website and user experience, but he did it without breaking a sweat, so we decided to keep him. Fortunately, he was happy to stay.

Noah Spaulding
Noah Spaulding

Chief Legal Officer

A one-time aspiring herpetologist, Noah traded his pet snakes for three cats and a law degree. He works across teams to keep us all far, far away from legal hot water. When he’s not making sure deals are properly negotiated, Noah is hanging out on his porch with a book and a beer.

Olin Nelson

Sales & Marketing Operations Manager

Combine Olin’s prior experience building a business from the ground up with his time as an analyst and you have a winning combination for uncovering data-backed opportunities to improve Hometap for our homeowners. As our sales and marketing ops manager, Olin is our new idea generator and one of the last to leave the office. It makes sense when you learn about his daily caffeine intake.

Owen Myers
Owen Myers

Lead Data Engineer

Builder, problem-solver—that’s Owen, Hometap’s lead data engineer. You’ll find him tackling Hometap’s data structures and pipelines to help better understand our customers, and then using that data to build and improve our products and services.

Rachel Cholewinski
Rachel Cholewinski

Marketing Coordinator

A hummus connoisseur (really, she’s a former brand ambassador for a hummus company), Rachel can argue the merits of both original and roasted red pepper. She’s also responsible for all things marketing: market research, branding, industry trends, promotional opportunities, you name it. How does she stay on top of it all? Compulsive list-making and coffee. Lots of coffee.

Rachel Keohan
Rachel Keohan

Head of Marketing

When she’s not winning chili cook-offs in her envy-worthy kitchen, Rachel leads the charge to elevate Hometap’s brand awareness with resonant, multi-channel marketing campaigns. No revenue mountain is too steep to climb, nor sales target too ambitious to meet for this former internal auditor (she even makes that sound exciting).

Samantha Sandler
Samantha Sandler

Investment Manager

Samantha’s day begins when Ollie, her golden retriever and reliable alarm clock, wakes her up for a game of catch in the park. (That practice may have helped her become a two-time recipient of the “Golden Glove” award at her family’s annual softball game.) Once she’s in the office, Samantha gets to work helping homeowners through the entire Hometap process.

Sarah Dekin
Sarah Dekin

COO

Serving as CMO at major brands such as Zipcar, House of Blues, and Virgin, Sarah brings a powerful sales and marketing strategy to her role at Hometap. With a fearlessness that must have come in handy during her time as a white-water kayak instructor, she works hard to get the word out about Hometap and to connect us with people who want to take advantage of the equity in their homes.

Steve Leibman
Steve Leibman

VP of Engineering

Technology has come a long way since Steve first figured out how to type in BASIC programs on the TRS-80 (don’t worry, we had to Google that, too). So, it’s a good thing he likes to learn. As VP of Engineering, Steve, and his team often find themselves doing things they didn’t know how to do the week before, using new tools, and building something they never thought they could build.

Tom Corra
Tom Corra

CFO

As Hometap’s Chief Financial Officer, Tom oversees our investment strategy, data science team, financial operations, and underwriting. In addition to improving Hometap in the short-term, he’s focused on the long-term, and has his sights set on what Hometap will be five years from now.

Tom Kazakov
Tom Kazakov

Software Engineer

Tom has more than 15 years in software across a variety of roles, meaning he’s fluent in the language of computer. As a Hometap software engineer, he’s currently focused on building things: web systems, apps, you name it. When he’s not tinkering with tech, he’s playing D&D, hanging with his kids, or avoiding the “what restaurant should we eat at?” question (sometimes all three at once).

Whitney Trook
Whitney Trook

Product Manager

As product manager, Whitney researches ways to make Hometap better, for our homeowners, investors, and our team—and then identifies all the moving pieces needed to make it happen. The result? A seamless investment process for you, and ample snack supply for us.

Zach Mason
Zach Mason

Investment Manager

When Zach arrives at work, he’s generally already hit the gym and had his coffee so he’s fired up and ready to help you determine if a Hometap Investment makes sense for you. After work, you’ll find him on the soccer field, softball diamond, or any other athletic playing surface, competing for company teams or rec leagues. Yeah, we wish we had his energy, too.

Join our Team

At Hometap, we strive to be good Owners and good Neighbors. We are a highly collaborative team of passionate individuals, always ready to roll up our sleeves to create the best possible outcome. Sound like you?
