The founders of Legacy Home Loans, a Black-owned mortgage banking firm headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, have opened three new branch offices in Black and minority communities as they continue to make good on their commitment to empowering African American communities throughout the United States. “We have a focus on building sustainable wealth through homeownership and leaving family legacies,” said Ben Slayton, the president and CEO of the company.
Their new branch office located, in Baltimore, Maryland is headed up by Stephen Trye, a lifetime resident of Baltimore since he was 5-years old. Stephen brings over 13 years of experience to the mortgage banking and real estate industry. He holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from the University of Baltimore and he has very strong ties to the Baltimore Community, which he loves. He is an advocate in the education of families on financial health through homeownership and stays true to his passion through service to his community, employees, and ultimately his clients.
Their second new branch is in Charlotte, North Carolina. This branch is headed up by Netfa Wray, a 20-year residence of Charlotte. Netfa has over 20 years of mortgage experience including loan processing and underwriting which allows him to guide his clients through every step of the mortgage process as a loan officer and branch manager. He takes pride in educating and informing each client of all possibilities, so they all will make the best decisions. Netfa is an active member of the community and calls Charlotte his home as if he were a native.
