Qualia’s CEO Honored by HousingWire for Major Industry Contributions

December 14, 2017

Qualia co-founder and CEO Nate Baker was selected by HousingWire’s editorial board to receive the 2017 Vanguard Award. Criteria for recognition include outstanding leadership over the last 12 months within the housing finance industry and within his company.

“Our Vanguard winners represent an incredible cross section of the industry—the cream of the crop in lending, servicing, investing and real estate,” Magazine Editor Sarah Wheeler said. “This group of leaders exemplifies the remarkable depth of talent and expertise in the world of mortgage finance.”

In 2017, Baker led the company to an impressive growth trajectory. Under Baker’s leadership, the company tripled its size and expanded the platform’s availability from 15 to 50 states.

Qualia’s team launched a platform that centralizes the closing process and connects thousands of title companies, lenders, brokers, real estate professionals and home buyers and sellers in real-time across the country.

“While honored to receive this individual award, I want to share it with the Qualia team that builds the products that empower our members, which include title companies, lenders and brokerages,” said Baker. “Together, we’re solving a massive problem with coordination that has existed for years with real estate transactions. Qualia is so fortunate to have an incredible team that genuinely enjoys working together to reimagine the closing process from the ground up.”
