The 2022 Housing Champion candidate slate was replete with a number of worthy candidates, but the untimely passing of our friend and colleague of decades, Dr. Frank Nothaft, Chief Economist, CoreLogic, and former Chief Economist, Freddie Mac, spurred our decision given his lifetime record of accomplishments.
“We pause this year to acknowledge the once in a generation contributions of Frank Nothaft to the mortgage industry. I consider myself blessed to have worked closely with Frank at Freddie Mac and CoreLogic. His strengths as an economist were only outmatched by his care for others as a friend, husband and father,” said Faith Schwartz.
Indeed, scores of mortgage industry professionals were graced by the presence of Frank. His uncanny ability to simplify the complex was a hallmark that accompanied his calling card bow-tie. Many of us knew Frank from his steady attendance and presentations at industry conferences where he used wit and humor to deliver the mortgage forecast.
Kerri Milam, President, Depth PR, will announce the Housing Champion award on September 27, 2022, as Day One of #HousingDC22 comes to a close. Dr. Ed Golding, Executive Director of the Golub Center for Finance and Policy at the MIT Sloan School, will join Frank’s wife, Lisa Greenfield, in accepting the award from Faith Schwartz, who has made a contribution to Habitat for Humanity in Frank’s honor.
