At Rocket Homes, we are laser-focused on using technology and innovation to create a fully customized and transparent experience that is stress-free and fully integrated–working seamlessly with sister companies to simplify and speed-up the process, all while saving our clients money," said Doug Seabolt, CEO of Rocket Homes.
