brown duckett- the legacy of homeownership tour Sr. VP, Emerging
Markets and Affordable Lending, Chase Mortgage Homeownership is the
quintessential and fundamental illustration of the American Dream,
because it symbolizes so much more than just a structure with bricks
and mortar. As Thasunda Brown Duckett passionately articulates,
homeownership gives you a sense of identity, a place of permanence, a
feeling of pride, the beginnings of wealth and it improves your overall
quality of life. And that’s just for starters. This is why Duckett, the
senior vice president of emerging markets and affordable lending for
Chase, is excited about the legendary bank’s Legacy of Homeownership
Tour.

“As we all know, one of the founding principles and opportunities to
gain wealth is through homeownership. And as part of our legacy within
the African American community we believe that to access homeownership,
and sustain it, is a great way to preserve your legacy,” says Duckett,
who elucidates that homes are an appreciable asset that can be
transferred from generation to generation. You can also, Duckett adds,
take advantage of “the home equity opportunities to be able to send
your children to college, or to be able to finance that second home.
Preserving your legacy provides that opportunity.

” Duckett says the Legacy Tour, which swings through Atlanta, Houston,
Chicago and New York, navigates homeowner aspirants through the
pre-ownership process. The tour is instrumental in helping to alleviate
pre-existing fears and/or unfounded beliefs about buying a home. “I
hope that African Americans who deserve to be in a home get into the
process early. Don’t be afraid,” Duckett admonishes, adding that Chase
doesn’t just want to put people into homes. “I want to make sure that
five years from now when we look at all the people that we’ve put into
homes, they are still in their homes, they are living the American
dream and homeownership has exceeded their expectations.” –terry shropshire
