Meet Zach Mason

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? 

It’s amazing to hear how much we’ve been able to help homeowners to finally feel financially stable and achieve their goals. My last job was at an ad agency working with giant consumer goods companies, so it was quite a different experience than the more personalized, one on one role I’m in now!

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

I once worked with a homeowner who lived down in Arizona. Through a Hometap Investment, she was able to get rid of the debt that had been weighing her down for nearly 20 years and pay off her car. She said that it was the first time in over two decades she felt like she could comfortably breathe and not need to worry about her finances every month. It also allowed her to take her first vacation since 2005!

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

I love watching movies — I actually try to watch 100 new movies each year — as well as collecting records. My interests are primarily just indoor activities these days!

Describe your dream home.

Oh man, this is a tough one. I don’t need a giant home by any means, but I’d love to have one with nice modern appliances, countertops, and bathrooms. A fireplace in the living room would be incredible. I’d also love to have a good amount of land and space for a dog to run around as well. I’d make a big stack of firewood, and build a fire pit outside.

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

How much quicker and easier our process is than traditional banking options!
