PrimeLending Announces Sponsorship of National Association of Real Estate Brokers and National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals

Dallas-based residential mortgage originator PrimeLending, a PlainsCapital Company, today announced national sponsorships of two leading professional real estate organizations—the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) and the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP).

Through these sponsorships, PrimeLending will take an active role in the events facilitated by NAREB and NAHREP. These activities include participation in housing fairs, first-time homebuyer seminars, summits and conferences held across the country.

“We are pleased to partner with PrimeLending, one of the top mortgage originators in the country,” said NAREB President Julius Cartwright. “NAREB's partnership with PrimeLending will mean an enhanced ability to serve and educate our communities on the various lending practices and programs associated with homeownership, so that homebuyers may be empowered to choose viable solutions to help them purchase a home.”

NAHREP President Gerardo Ascencio added, “NAHREP is thrilled to be working with PrimeLending as a sponsor partner. We believe partnerships like this are central to creating change in the marketplace and improving service to the Latino homebuyer community."

NAREB was founded in 1947, making it the oldest minority trade association in America. It was formed out of a need to secure the right to equal housing opportunities regardless of race, creed, or color. Since its inception, NAREB has participated in various meaningful challenges and legislative improvements, to establish fair housing for all. NAHREP serves as the voice for Hispanic real estate and proud champions of homeownership for the Hispanic community. NAHREP's mission remains focused on creating sustainable homeownership in the Hispanic community through the education, empowerment and leadership of Hispanic real estate practitioners.

“Both NAREB and NAHREP do amazing work in so many areas of the country,” said Todd Salmans, president and CEO of PrimeLending. “These organizations provide exceptional leadership, services and resources to various communities working toward the goal of buying a home. PrimeLending is thrilled to be a sponsor of NAREB’s and NAHREP’s programs and help bring potential homebuyers one step closer to achieving the American dream of homeownership.”

Latonia Donaldson, vice president and business development manager of PrimeLending added, “PrimeLending always looks to truly connect to the communities and people it serves. When presented with the chance to bring support through national sponsorships of NAREB and NAHREP, we embraced the opportunity. Partnering with national organizations that do so much on the local level is perfectly in line with PrimeLending’s people-centric culture.”

PrimeLending recently participated in the NAREB and Houston Real Estate Association’s Housing Fair at Greenspoint Mall in Houston and plans to take part in many upcoming NAREB and NAHREP events.
