ServiceLink increases commitment to better serve today's rapidly changing housing market
ORLANDO, Fla. - May 12, 2021 - PRLog -- The National Association of Minority Mortgage Bankers of America (NAMMBA) is partnering with ServiceLink, an important Sapphire sponsor, in NAMMBA's effort to affect positive change with the housing needs of underserved communities, and with the development of a more diverse mortgage work force.
"We're extremely excited to partner with ServiceLink," says NAMMBA Founder/CEO Tony Thompson, CMB. "Their pledge to NAMMBA's mission of strengthening the mortgage and finance industry with a more diverse and inclusive workplace culture shows that they are looking to the future of home ownership in America."
Through this partnership, ServiceLink will deepen its relationships within the communities in which it currently conducts business, creating economic opportunity that focuses on business development for minority brokers while meeting the housing needs of underserved areas.
According to NAMMBA, over the next five years, 75 percent of all first-time home buyers will be women, millennials or people of color. Although there is concern across the industry about a stagnant or shrinking housing market, purchase mortgage opportunity is not only growing, it's changing. According to NAMMBA's most recent mortgage market forecast, the three largest diverse borrower groups (Asians, African-Americans, and Hispanics) generated more than $292 billion of purchase opportunity in 2020, which amounts to 24.2 percent of all purchase dollar opportunities.
"At ServiceLink, we're committed to linking what matters – and that includes strong connections to purpose-driven organizations like NAMMBA," says Caitlin Green, SVP, head of marketing and communications at ServiceLink. "This partnership is an important step in bolstering our organization's influence and impact on the development of meaningful programs that impact students, real estate professionals, and policies – and lead to stronger organizations."
