Meet Chris Peterson

Our Investment Managers are experts in helping you tap into your home equity, but you may have more in common with them than you think. Learn a little more about your Investment Manager, their life outside of Hometap, and why they love working with homeowners like you.


What’s the best part of your job? How does being an Investment Manager at Hometap differ from your past work experiences? 

The best part of my job is helping homeowners achieve their financial goals. This is especially rewarding when a homeowner speaks with me after they have been denied by other traditional financing options and Hometap is able to help.  Being an Investment Manager at Hometap has differed greatly from other work experiences where the goal is simply to bring in as much revenue as possible. Hometap’s mission of helping make home ownership less stressful is embedded in everything we do, and it resonates from senior leadership to newly-minted reps.

Is there a particular homeowner story that really made an impact on you? What is it and why?

I have worked with many homeowners in my time at Hometap, but one particular homeowner story that resonates with me even today is that of a homeowner who was in need of funding to procure better counsel. This homeowner’s goal was to gain custody of his young daughter and we were able to give him access to the funds to accomplish this goal. He was denied by traditional financing providers, however like many, he was house-rich and cash-poor. Hometap was able to help him access his equity and accomplish his financial goal.

What are your favorite things to do when you’re not working?

I enjoy being outdoors and can usually be found with my hands in the dirt around my house as I continue to transform the landscape. When I’m not on my tractor, you can typically find me on the golf course attempting to better my last round.

Describe your dream home.

My dream home is an older farmhouse with a wraparound porch that sits on several acres of land on which I can farm.

What’s one thing you wish people knew about Hometap? 

Hometap is unlike any other financing model. We are changing the way homeowners view financing.  Our aim is to help as many homeowners achieve their goals as possible.
