About RateGravity

RateGravity is changing the residential mortgage business by connecting home buyers directly with local lenders at a fraction of the cost paid by Americans today. On average, our customers save approximately $30,000 on their loan.

RateGravity is a rapidly growing company that already works with thousands of homebuyers and real estate agents in Massachusetts. In the coming months we will deepen our foothold in Massachusetts and expand to other geographies.

In addition to financial growth, we aspire to be the most mission-driven mortgage company anywhere, and have recently made a pledge to save all homebuyers at least $10M in mortgage interest this year.

RateGravity is a graduate of Techstars and was a 2016 winner of MassChallenge. We recently raised $2M in a seed round with investors including Evertrue co-founder and CEO Brent Grinna, Bonobos and TrunkClub founder Brian Spaly, C Space Chairman Diane Hessan, GasBuddy CEO Walt Doyle, former PayPal Media exec David Chang, InsightSquared CEO Fred Shilmover, and Listen Ventures.
