NEW YORK, May 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Home Captain Realty, a veteran-owned business based in New York City, has been officially accepted into the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Accelerating Real Estate (REach®) Class of 2016.
REach is a program that supports new companies that NAR believes will benefit both realtors and the broader real estate industry. The program provides real estate-focused education, mentorship and market exposure for selected companies. Home Captain Realty was one of seven firms chosen for the program—out of hundreds that applied—because of its innovative business model focused on bridging the gap between the homebuyer, mortgage lender and real estate agent.
As part of the honor, Home Captain Realty will take part in the National Association of Realtors' Conference in Washington, D.C. on May 9, where the NAR class will be publicly announced to the Realtor® community.
"Home Captain is a patent-pending business model that pairs homebuyers with local Realtors® through our real estate concierge team," said Lucia Liu, Chief of Staff and Director of Business Development. "We are excited to introduce Home Captain to more than 1 million NAR members, while helping the lenders in our network have a closer relationship with the more than 7,000 agents in our program."
Home Captain is currently the only real estate referral network within 2016 REach program with the National Association of Realtors.
"We are very excited and honored to be accepted into the REach program, and we are committed to taking full advantage of NAR's endorsement to serve the real estate community, homebuyers and our lender partners," said Grant Moon, CEO and Founder of Home Captain and a U.S. Army service member of 18 years.
As a veteran-owned business, Home Captain gives back to the community by employing military veterans and their spouses.
"I have been a Marine wife for over 8 years, and my husband is a gunnery sergeant who has served for 12 years," said Katie Payne, Home Captain Real Estate Concierge Representative. "I love working for Home Captain. I have a passion for helping people, [with my] Master's in Counseling, so it's rewarding for me to be a part of helping someone have a pleasant and successful home-buying experience."
