Hoping to further engage with local Hispanic homebuyers, Guaranteed Rate has announced the hiring of Fannie Loyola and Maggie Martinez. Loyola will serve as an area manager in Lake County while Martinez will act as a branch manager, overseeing markets in Oak Park, River Forest, Forest Park, Berwyn and Cicero.
“We are thrilled to welcome Fannie and Maggie, two huge producers and industry leaders in the Hispanic community,” said Camilo Escalante, Guaranteed Rate’s executive director of diverse segments, in a press release. “Their decision to join Guaranteed Rate further demonstrates that we are delivering on our vision to continue improving our services for the Latino community by ensuring we are set up to succeed.”
Loyola is a Mexico City native with more than eight years of mortgage industry experience. She is also part of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) and is among the top 250 originators in that organization. “I understand the challenges Spanish-speaking homebuyers face when going through the loan process,” Loyola said. “I am excited to join the Guaranteed Rate team, which is leading the way to bridge the language gap so that more and more individuals can achieve their dreams of homeownership.”
Martinez is also active in NAHREP, where she serves as Chicago’s membership director. And like Loyola, she has been recognized as one of the organization’s top 250 originators. Speaking of her new position at Guaranteed Rate, Martinez commented on how the company is striving to provide new resources and opportunities for the growing market of Hispanic homebuyers. “I am grateful to join the company and leverage its groundbreaking Diversity Processing Team and the Language Access Program to build even stronger relationships within the Spanish-speaking community,” she said.
Guaranteed Rate established its Language Access Program and Diversity Processing Team recently. And according to the press release, the firm looks forward to strengthening its existing outreach efforts with the hiring of Loyola and Martinez.
