Realogics Sotheby’s International Realty (RSIR) confirmed that Caliber Home Loans will be the preferred mortgage lender on the recently established real estate portal hosted on GeekWire, a popular website in the tech industry that attracts more than 1 million unique visitors per month and reaches 25,000 active subscribers daily with its daily newsletter.
"We have enjoyed collaborating with Caliber Home Loans on many campaigns and developments, so this was a natural evolution of our preferred relationship," said Dean Jones, President and CEO of RSIR. “We look forward to publishing educational content together within this rapidly expanding target market.”
Jones refers to the regions tech workers and suggests Millennials will be the greatest demographic profile driving the local housing market for the foreseeable future. RSIR announced on September 14, 2016 an exclusive partnership with GeekWire to populate a real estate platform and invited Caliber Home Loans to resource the mortgage lending and provide editorial content and tools for its many viewers.
"We are excited to partner with Realogics Sotheby's International Realty on the new GeekWire real estate portal,” said Brady Yeager, Divisional Vice President of Caliber Home Loans. “Once again, we are leading the industry with creative and progressive campaigns to better serve our growing market share in the Pacific Northwest."
In 2015, RSIR and Caliber Home Loans launched the #NoPlaceLikeOwn campaign with the goal of educating consumers on the benefits of buy vs. rent and highlighting new mortgage products that have made ownership more attainable than ever in recent years. The marketing duo have co-hosted numerous events and promotions to raise awareness for the opportunity and highlight the purchasing power of the regions tech workers. Beyond offering historically low interest rates, Caliber Home Loans now considers restricted stock units as part of a loan applicant’s mortgage underwriting, which can dramatically help with loan prequalification in today’s competitive housing market.
To service the rising demand, Yeager has appointed experienced Mortgage Loan Consultants at each of RSIR’s regional offices:
