Going the Extra Mile


Someone to Watch…

Tyler Newhall and Quicken Loans Go the Extra Mile


Here at HomeFree-USA, we’re passionate about our mission. We believe in going the extra mile to make sure our clients achieve homebuying success. When someone goes out of their way to help us fulfill that mission, we want to share it with the world.

That’s why we’re shining the spotlight on Tyler Newhall, a government affairs associate at Quicken Loans. Tyler helped us with the planning of our Reaching Millions conference in Detroit last year and he continues to go out of his way for HomeFree-USA, our staff, and the community.

HomeFree-USA founder and president, Marcia Griffin, met Bill Emerson, vice chairman of Rock Holdings, the parent company of Quicken Loans, and mentioned to him that our conference would be in Detroit. Though HomeFree-USA and Quicken didn’t have a long-standing, established relationship, Bill Emerson and Pete Carroll, Quicken’s executive vice president of government relations, were generous enough to assign Tyler to help us out. 

Quicken Loans served as our honorary host for the conference. Quicken senior staff were expert presenters, Bill Emerson delivered a rousing keynote speech and all the conference attendees appreciated the staff’s hospitality during the Quicken office tour. Everyone went out of their way to ensure the success of our conference, show us a good time and shine a positive light on the city of Detroit. Tyler’s help in making it all happen was particularly stellar.

“Tyler was incredibly helpful in the planning of our annual conference,” says Christine Gould, chief development and communications officer for HomeFree-USA. “In fact, Tyler’s diligence and responsiveness helped make this HomeFree-USA’s most successful conference yet.”

“Creating a good client and partner experience is a priority for Quicken Loans,” Tyler says. “I’ve learned how Quicken and the financial services community can make a positive impact on people’s lives,” he says. Through his work at Quicken, Tyler wants to help people get into homes, make smart financial decisions, and develop a stable economic base.

Tyler’s personal commitment to helping consumers achieve homeownership comes from a desire to help those who are struggling to achieve their American Dream. 

“Through whatever resources I have and whatever platform I have, I try to give back and help people get the same opportunities that were afforded to me through my upbringing,” he says. Working at Quicken allows him to do that and more, he says. “It’s something that we at Quicken are passionate about as a company.”

But it goes beyond that. “Helping others, following up, being hospitable, going the extra mile for their clients and friends are all cultural attributes of Quicken,” says Marcia Griffin, “this is something we highly respect at HomeFree-USA.”
