Hearsay Social Nabs HousingWire TECH100 Award

logoWe’re thrilled to announce that Hearsay Social won HousingWire’s 2016 HW TECH100™ award as one of the most innovative technology companies transforming the housing and mortgage industry. We also received the additional honor of being named the winner in the “something else entirely” category – also known as the “it” factor.
Companies were judged based on several dimensions including uniqueness, elegance, influence, growth and potential.
“The companies in the HW TECH100 are providing innovative solutions to the traditionally hide-bound mortgage finance industry,” said HousingWire Editor-in-Chief Jacob Gaffney. “In the face of rising costs to originate and service loans, a still-volatile housing market and multiplying regulations, these innovations are crucial to the survival and profitability of those in our industry.”
“It’s incredible to see the universe of tech options now available to our industry,” said HousingWire Magazine Editor Sarah Wheeler. “Some of the best and brightest minds are clearly working in our space to address the extraordinary challenges our industry is facing.”
