The National Association of Minority Mortgage Bankers of America (NAMMBA) has honored Equity Prime Mortgage as one of its 2018 Best Places to Work for Women and Minorities in the mortgage industry. Each year, NAMMBA compiles this list to honor 20 companies who have demonstrated their commitment to diversity and inclusion on numerous levels.
"On behalf of Equity Prime Mortgage, it was an honor to receive the NAMMBA Best Places to Work for women and minorities award,” said Eddy Perez, president of Equity Prime Mortgage. “As an organization, we've always hired from the communities we serve, and it's greatly appreciated when the hard work of many is acknowledged."
As one of the very few 100 percent minority-owned mortgage lenders in the U.S., diversity and inclusion have always been top priorities at Equity Prime Mortgage. With an employee base that is more than 54 percent female, and with more than 70 percent of its business coming from minority homebuyers, Equity Prime Mortgage announced the addition of its Legacy Division in 2018. This Division was formed to crush disparity in mortgage lending in the African-American, Latino and female markets.
