What drives success for their customers is HomeScout’s ability to produce quality engagement, the processes that they have built around consumer conversion, and the concierge services that they apply to make sure that the consumer, the real estate agent, and the loan officer work seamlessly together to fund the loan and deliver the home of the consumer’s dream.
