Rice partners with the first technology-enabled residential sale-leaseback company to help empower and give flexibility to American homeowners

New York, May 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jerry Rice, widely regarded as the greatest wide receiver in football history, will serve as Brand Ambassador to EasyKnock, the Pro Football Hall of Famer and company executives jointly announced today.

EasyKnock’s innovative service provides an alternative to traditional financing options by enabling homeowners to convert the equity they have worked hard to build by selling their home, getting the cash they need, and remaining in their home as a renter.

He believes his partnership with EasyKnock will truly thrive through a shared motivation to provide the average American with innovative solutions.

“I am passionate about creating opportunities that support Americans and their communities,” Rice, a father of four including two who have worked in the real estate industry, said. “This is why working with EasyKnock resonated with me. By empowering hard-working people with flexibility around their finances, they will be able to achieve what is today’s American dream.”

With new customers growing approximately 200 percent in 2021 from 2020, EasyKnock is increasing financial flexibility and in more demand than ever.

 “While he is best known as being the greatest wide receiver in history, Jerry’s commitment to community is what makes him a natural fit for our organization,” said Jarred Kessler, CEO and Founder of EasyKnock. “Our team admires that he is taking action in helping American homeowners to empower themselves and achieve financial and personal success. We look forward to a strong relationship with Jerry that spans everywhere EasyKnock is active and builds awareness for our solutions that can help homeowners achieve their financial goals.”
