Meet Jake Costello

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?

I really love working with everyday people and helping them get to a more secure financial position.

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

I worked with a woman whose father was dying of cancer, and she wanted to redo the house for him. It’s those kinds of touching experiences that really stick with you and remind you of the difference you’re making in the lives of homeowners.

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

I enjoy skiing, golf, playing backgammon, and spending time with friends and family.

Describe your dream home.

I’d want something with an open floor plan that has plenty of room to entertain.

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

That we’re here to help, and that we’re a real option for all homeowners, not just people with low credit.
