LGBT Mortgage Advisory Group is Created
NAGLREP has formed the LGBT Mortgage Advisory Group to represent the interests of LGBT home buyers and mortgage professionals focusing on advocacy, education and empowerment. The group is Chaired by Kimber White, President Elect of the National Association of Mortgage Brokers, and Co-Chaired by Valerie Saunders, Executive Director of the National Association of Mortgage Brokers.
The LGBT Mortgage Advisory Group participated in November’s Launch with a Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) webinar titled LGBTQ+ Lending, A review of practices and considerations. The Advisory Group comprises of NAGLREP Corporate Partner lenders and will meet at the spring LGBT Housing Policy Summit April 28-29, and fall National Conference October 6-8.
“This is a great opportunity for us to work closely with the lenders who are NAGLREP corporate partners,” White says. “NAGLREP has done a fantastic job in raising awareness on the discriminatory issues that the LGBT community faces in their quest for homeownership. The mortgage industry needs to fully lend its support and lessen the challenges so many in the community incur before, during and after their home buying experience.”
