Guaranteed Rate hired Arlyn J. Kalinski to serve as compliance director, Limited English Proficiency (“LEP”) Program.

In her new role as compliance director for Guaranteed Rate, Kalinski will work to strengthen the company’s existing efforts to engage a broad range of homebuying communities through its newly established Language Access Program (LAP).

She will oversee all aspects of compliance and execution for Guaranteed Rate’s initiative designed to guide prospective homebuyers through the entire mortgage process in their preferred language, starting with Spanish.

LAP, which is being launched during National Hispanic Heritage Month, begins with Spanish to focus on the significant expansion of the Hispanic housing market. According to the Urban Institute, 70% of first-time homebuyers over the next two decades will be Latino. By building trust and transparency with Spanish-speaking consumers, Kalinski will ensure they have the tools they need to successfully navigate the home loan process.

“Hispanic homeownership is at a tipping point,” said Kalinski, a native of Puerto Rico with 15 years in the financial services industry. “This is an opportunity to meet the moment by addressing the homeownership needs of this expanding population and provide additional resources, education, and outreach to diverse communities throughout the country.”

The program includes training and recruiting resources as well as education, financial literacy and community outreach. Kalinski will also oversee internal company-wide programs that prioritize career paths and new skill development for employees interested in supporting LEP communities.
