Chase, one of the nation's leading home lenders, returns to
Houston with its Legacy of Homeownership Tour to help consumers
learn how to become long-term homeowners.
Now in its second year and with returning lead sponsor Freddie

from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Reliant Center. Admission is
free, but pre-registration is required at www.chase.com/legacy.
The one-day seminar is designed to show African-Americans how to
establish and preserve their legacies through homeownership. It
includes informational workshops, access to community resources and
one-on-one consultations with mortgage professionals.
"At Chase, we know that helping people make good financial
decisions will increase long-term homeownership," said Pablo
Sanchez, home lending senior executive at Chase. "Providing
consumers with practical advice lays the groundwork for a legacy of
homeownership that can last for generations."
