Why this Freddie Mac VP attends the Reaching Millions Conference

Ready to close out 2020 with a bang? So are we! Our annual Reaching Millions Conference is just around the corner and we couldn’t be more excited. We look forward to speaking with our partners and gaining new insights through our ever-growing network of affiliates.

This year’s conference is going to be amazing. This year we will have some new speakers and be gathering together to consolidate our messaging and approach to tackling some of the biggest challenges facing homebuyers in 2021.

 

One partner we are especially excited to see again is Mike Dawson

Mike Dawson is the Vice President of Affordable Lending at Freddie Mac, the $15B secondary mortgage market giant representing over $2 trillion in assets. Since its founding in 1970, Freddie Mac has “made home possible” for over 80 million homebuyers.

Mike is a longtime supporter of HomeFree-USA and an attendee of our Reaching Millions Conference. He says that there are many reasons he attends: “The HomeFree Reaching Millions Conference is inspirational for those at Freddie Mac, for networking, for information related to our business, and meeting individuals who we can help.” 

Mike goes on to say, “We’re thrilled to be here. We’re going to be here next year and we love supporting this organization and its conference.”

 

With so many speakers, there’s something for everyone

We are incredibly pleased to welcome back many panels and speakers, who share our passion and are collaborating with us to eliminate problems for homebuyers. It is incredibly gratifying to engage in a true exchange of ideas with others who share our values regarding diversity and inclusion in business, as well as our commitment to eliminating barriers like the wealth gap.

If you are looking for how your organization can respond, join the conversation with some of the mortgage industry’s leaders and learn about the initiatives and best practices they are implementing.

We provide an engaging environment for discussion on many issues facing homebuyers of color, bringing together industry leaders as well as our “boots on the ground” affiliates.

Our goal is to bridge the gap between mortgage providers and homebuyers, particularly those of color.

 

The Reaching Millions Conference is where lenders can get direct feedback from our outreach partners and collaborate to develop solutions

By the nature of our organization, the conference is an inclusive event, representing diverse communities across the U.S., as well as a wide array of stakeholders in the housing industry.

We encourage mortgage providers to engage with the community in an organic way. At HomeFree-USA, we create an atmosphere of collaboration and engagement.

HomeFree-USA was created to give lenders real insight into underserved communities and allow them to work with communities in need to create solutions that benefit them both. It is our vision that the Reaching Millions Conference be the foreground and entry point for that relationship.

Despite the challenges that we’ve seen in 2020 so far, we are confident that the Reaching Millions Conference can still provide the arena needed for lenders and communities to connect.

Don’t forget to register, we look forward to seeing you at the 2020 Reaching Millions Conference! https://www.homefreeusa.org/rm2020
