  • That’s a massive increase compared to the company’s net loss of $53.98 million from the same time last year.

Jay Farner, CEO of Rocket Companies, said the following in the Q2 earnings report.

“Rocket Companies had a very strong second quarter, thanks to our team members’ hard work and dedication to our clients, as well as the incredibly scalable mortgage origination platform that allowed us to meet unprecedented demand. As a result, we were able to help more clients this quarter than any other in our 35-year history — all while more than 98% of our team members worked safely from their homes.”
