San Francisco California, UNITED STATES


SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Qualia, the only real estate closing platform developed after TRID was enacted, today announced that the company’s co-founder and CEO, Nate Baker, was selected by HousingWire’s editorial board to receive the 2017 Vanguard Award. Criteria for recognition includes 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 in a highly regulated market. Under Baker’s leadership, the company tripled its size and expanded the platform’s availability from 15 to 50 states becoming the only new national platform in over 15 years.

Qualia’s team successfully 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. The flexibility built into Qualia’s technology and the expertise of the highly trained Compliance Team put the Qualia platform in a rare position to be the most up-to-date software available to settlement agents and real estate professionals nationwide.

“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.”

In addition to building an extraordinary team, Baker also played a crucial role in accelerating the company’s financial growth by securing funding from top venture capital firms including Formation 8 and Bienville Capital. Their economic support and technology industry insights have been invaluable to Qualia.
