Who We Are

On January 14, 2000, HomeSmart Real Estate announced its Grand Opening to the Phoenix marketplace with only two Agents. A reputation for advanced technologies soon followed. As a result, HomeSmart rapidly developed into one of the nation's fastest growing Real Estate brokerages. With a commitment to its Agents and Clients, HomeSmart has now grown to over 7,000 agents, with offices throughout the Southwest and continuing to grow nationally. HomeSmart Phoenix is the largest real estate brokerage in the Southwest and ranked among the top 10 largest real estate brokerages in the nation.

HomeSmart was founded by Matt Widdows, Chairman and Founder. It has always been privately held by Matt and his wife Colleen. Much of HomeSmart's success can be attributed to the combined real estate and technology background of its' founder. In the early 1990's Matt created a technology company that focused primarily on accounts receivable systems for the medical industry. During that time Matt was licensed as a real estate agent and after selling that company in 1994, he focused his efforts full time in the real estate industry.

In early 1999, he recognized the opportunity to bring his technological expertise into real estate and the idea of HomeSmart was born. Matt created a company built around technology that provided Agents with cutting edge tools, a professional meeting and working environment, and efficiencies that would give them more time to focus on their Clients and their business. HomeSmart's technology has allowed it to provide a consistent high level of customer service to its' agents and clients, and prides itself on successfully blending technology with a personal touch, something that is often lost.

Today, HomeSmart continues to be a leader in the Real Estate industry by implementing technologies that empower its Agents to provide outstanding customer service to their Clients. HomeSmart agents are professional practitioners that lead their industry and are known for excellence.HomeSmart has now franchised its' proprietary systems and plans continued growth throughout the United States, with franchises currently throughout California, Arizona, Utah, Colorado, Washington and Denver. HomeSmart's family of services include real estate brokerage and investment, procurement of real estate for others, real estate secured investment services, mortgage services, title and home warranty, construction, and more.
