Integrated Mortgage Solutions (IMS), the only woman-owned collateral protection firm offering a seamless suite of secure, integrated services for the management of distressed portfolios, has partnered with the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB), the country’s oldest minority real estate trade association.
“Working with NAREB seemed natural since we share a common interest in supporting the efforts of diverse groups nationwide. We look forward to what we can accomplish working together with NAREB.”
Through the partnership, NAREB and IMS are working collectively to engage minority businesses as subcontractors. NAREB brings a wealth of institutional knowledge on the impact of foreclosures on urban markets around the nation, working in tandem with IMS to provide valuations and short sale services to those communities.
“No single business or organization can tackle the housing crisis alone, but collectively we are making an impact, “ says LJ Jennings, president of Sales for NAREB. “It is incredibly refreshing to have a company like IMS come to the table and work with NAREB members. The partnership presents a fantastic opportunity to strengthen and utilize minority housing related companies to bring stability to our neighborhoods and industry.”
NAREB was founded on the basis of democracy in housing and is comprised primarily of African American professionals in the real estate industry. NAREB’s members include residential and commercial real estate agents and brokers, loan officers, mortgage brokers, title companies, appraisers, insurance agents and developers. NAREB and IMS share a dedication to aiding underserved populations and equipping all segments of a community with the tools needed to attain homeownership.
IMS provides a wide array of asset management solutions to mortgage servicers and simplifies the default management process through a comprehensive set of products and services.
“IMS remains committed to improving the housing market through collaboration,” says Cheryl Lang, chief executive officer and president of IMS. “Working with NAREB seemed natural since we share a common interest in supporting the efforts of diverse groups nationwide. We look forward to what we can accomplish working together with NAREB.”
