As CEO of Rocket Homes, Doug Seabolt sets the strategic vision and guides the growth of the company and its subsidiaries. The goal is to create a fully integrated platform that allows a consumer to seamlessly look for a house, obtain a mortgage and connect with a real estate agent.
In 2018, the company rebranded from In-House Realty to RocketHomes.com, adopted its current logo to better align with its sister companies and acquired ForSaleByOwner.com. In 2019, Seabolt kept the company laser-focused on providing consumers with the best experience possible. Rocket Homes sends referrals to its network of over 25,000 agents in all 50 states.
"Organizations within the residential real estate space continue to work toward one similar goal of providing consumers with a better home-buying and -selling experience, and as investment dollars continue to flow into the proptech space at unprecedented rates, I believe that in the end the consumer will be the ultimate beneficiary," says Seabolt.
Seabolt has led both privately held and publicly traded businesses. He joined Rock Holding's Family of Companies, which was founded and owned by Dan Gilbert, in 2008. The group of companies includes Quicken Loans and the Cleveland Cavaliers. Seabolt had over 20 years of previous experience in the real estate and mortgage fields and had founded and successfully operated his own mortgage bank for 13 years.
