Jeremy Brandt (born August 24, 1978) is an American technology entrepreneur, commentator, and founder of multiple real estate companies including FastHomeOffer.com and 1-800-CashOffer.
During the dot-com boom, Brandt was active in the Dallas technology community and served as a Director of Infrastructure for the eBusiness consulting company Scient.
After the dot-com bust forced layoffs at Scient, Brandt founded FastHomeOffer.com to create efficiencies in the real estate market by helping distressed home sellers locate qualified cash home buyers.
Recognizing a need in the real estate industry for a national, reputable brand that investors could operate under, Brandt founded 1-800-CashOffer to offer marketing, branding and training services to experienced real estate professionals.

In 2012 Brandt purchased the company We Buy Houses®, widely recognized as the most prevalent brand in the world for residential real estate investing. In 2013 he re-launched the company, catering to all aspects of the real estate investor lifecycle.
Brandt is an active member in Entrepreneurs' Organization, a global non-profit dedicated to helping entrepreneurs learn and grow. He is a board member and has served as President of the Dallas chapter and is a founder of the Fort Worth chapter.

Short Sale Fraud
In 2011, Brandt exposed extensive fraud by banks demanding kickbacks from real estate agents to approve a short sale, threatening to foreclose if they were not paid. The story was covered by CNBC and others. The fraud exposure included recorded phone conversations with bank employees making kick-back demands of real estate agents, and suggesting the payments be made outside of the HUD-1 settlement form, a clear violation of RESPA laws.
