In 2000, Matt Widdows, founder of HomeSmart, believed that the real estate industry had been left behind in technology and systems to support real estate agents in their day-to-day business needs. Agents and clients lived and communicated online and they now expected to find answers and resources at their fingertips. Matt wanted to combine traditional real estate concepts with innovation and a technology approach. This thought gave birth to the HomeSmart “low-fee, high-value” brokerage model. 20 years later HomeSmart now celebrates 20,000+ agents nation-wide with 190 offices in 36 States!
In 2018, Chuck Poteet brought the HomeSmart franchise to Texas and greater Houston. He started with 15 agents and in 28 months has now grown to 110. He attributes their 61% growth in 2020 to their amazing value for agents, brokers, and teams. Agents get all at HomeSmart: Broker Support, Agent Services, Tools, Technology, Training, Prestige, Culture, and 100% Commissions.
