Hi, I'm Chris Moberg, the nerdy bearded guy on the right.
It all started when my wife and I were looking into buying our first home. Our real estate agent mentioned a home warranty as a way to cover our appliance and system repairs without the hassle or expense of having to pay for each breakdown ourselves. It sounded like a great idea, but we were sceptical and confused.
We were out of our league, drowning in all the lingo and coverage options. In the end, we just wanted to understand which home warranties were trustworthy, covered the right items, and were competitive for the money. Shouldn't be that hard, right? Well it was. I would try navigating these sites to read sample contracts -- only to go to sleep exhausted by indecision. Then, my wife and I created a decision spreadsheet from my findings online and things started to get clearer.
With that experience, I had an epiphany. It shouldn't be so hard to find good reviews and score home warranties based on public information while having a clear and easy to use navigation. That's why I created Home Brands -- a perfect marriage between data and decision -- in the hopes that it helps others get their home covered while dispelling the myths.
