Driving the Future with Standout Leadership

A Note from Xome CEO Rayman Mathoda

"Our goal at Xome is to bring our deep real estate resources to help our clients transform the way they help their clients buy or sell a home or get a mortgage. With solutions spanning the real estate and mortgage life cycles from home valuations, title and settlement services, property inspection and maintenance services, to online as well as agent supported property brokerage and transaction services, we deliver all the key elements which must work together seamlessly to transform the consumer experience and industry cost structure. The question is not “if” the mortgage and real estate sectors will need to provide an automated consumer-friendly instant and cost-effective experience (as many are already doing in online consumer retail businesses), the question is when it will happen and who will lead the way.

We know the key to helping our clients achieve their transformative vision is our people. As such, we’re excited to welcome the following proven leaders to our team!"
