We are beginning the year with another installment from our Influencer Series, featuring industry veterans Tom Black and Calvin Mann interviewed by Houston Attorney Ambria Wilmore. In this video the two talk about the importance of Making the American Dream a Reality with a healthy discussion about trying to anticipate interest rates.

Tom remembers the significance of his parents’ first home purchased in Buffalo, New York, and shares further perspective about why it’s the industry’s responsibility to make homeownership a reality for all Americans today.
