Why I wake up excited in the morning:
I am thrilled I get to spend every day helping people with one of the most significant purchases they’ll ever make. We hear over and over that customers find their experience with us to be completely different from any they’ve had — and that they can’t imagine buying a home any other way. I can’t imagine a better job!
What we like: As one of the best capitalized companies, Flyhomes is positioned well to emerge from the ashes of cutthroat competition with a first mover advantage and its steadfast devotion to the consumer. Not to mention, they have a cool brand name that originated as a lifestyle brokerage for millennial travelers.
