We are excited to announce that Qualia co-founder and CEO Nate Baker has received the HousingWire 2017 Vanguard Award. The award recognizes C-level industry professionals and business unit leaders who have become leaders in their respective fields within housing and mortgage finance.

Q: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR SECRET TO SUCCESS?

“It’s our people. Together, we’re building the tools that empower closing teams that include title companies, lenders and brokerages. Everyone is so smart and so invested in being part of Qualia’s upward trajectory.”

Under Nate’s leadership, Qualia has successfully launched a platform centralizing the closing process and expanded its usage to thousands of title companies, lenders and brokers.

Over the past 12 months the Qualia platform extended from 15 to 50 states and the company scaled from 20 to more than 60 people.

“Together, we’re building the tools that empower closing teams that include title companies, lenders and brokerages. Everyone is so smart and so invested in being part of Qualia’s upward trajectory. We’re solving a massive coordination problem that has existed for years with real estate transactions which is no small task. We’re lucky to have an incredible team that genuinely enjoys working together to reimagine the closing process from the ground up.”
