Where are you going? What’s the direction? And why? with JP Ackerman

with Chris Papa

JP Ackerman is the CEO of SimpleFinance. Previously JP served as EVP, Head of Sales and President of Real Estate Products at HouseCanary, a big data analytics startup. JP has also held executive roles in strategic planning, portfolio management and acquisition at PulteGroup, the third largest home builder in the US based on number of homes closed. JP began his career as a product manager at Hewlett-Packard. 

SimpleFinance is reimagining the home financing process. Getting a mortgage should take days - not months. We've modernized the entire process to remove the pain and reduce the cost, so we can empower homebuyers with certainty and simplicity. We enable homebuyers to accurately value homes up front, select financing products that can close as fast as cash and expand their choices for homes and neighborhoods.
