Head of Sales



Sales & Business Development
Posted on Wednesday, October 18, 2023
Since our founding in 2015, Knock has been on a mission to make the often stressful process of buying and selling homes simple, certain and convenient. Today, we are an innovative home finance company that leverages technology and our relationships with more than 120,000 real estate agents throughout the U.S. to help homeowners repurpose some of their equity to buy their dream home before they sell, avoiding the hassle of living through repairs and showings. It’s all made possible by our flagship HomeSwap™ product, which combines a traditional mortgage with a no-interest bridge loan that empowers consumers with a non-contingent, cash-like offer right on their phone.

Launched by founding team members of Trulia.com, Knock currently operates in 75 markets nationwide. Knock has raised $900 million in debt and equity from top-tier investors, including Foundry Group, Greycroft, RRE, Parker89 and The National Association of Realtors®, giving NAR’s 1.6 million members the ability to market Knock's homeownership solutions to their clients.
