Meet Sam Statkus

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 love helping homeowners accomplish their goals! Hometap makes me feel very fulfilled. I’m excited to wake up every day knowing that I can make such a big difference in someone’s life!  What we do is very rewarding, and that feeling is not something I have really experienced in previous roles.

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

I worked with a homeowner who was laid off due to COVID-19, was running out of money, and had no options to receive funds via traditional lenders. The banks wanted pay stubs, W2s, etc. — all things she couldn’t provide, which disqualified her. She came to Hometap, and we were able to get her the funds to help hold her over until she can find work again!

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

Watching sports, playing basketball, and exploring new restaurants around Boston.

Describe your dream home.

A nice two-story house with updated appliances, granite countertops, an island in the kitchen, a bar, and a basement for a man cave!

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

That we are not a loan!
