Linda Norton’s real estate slogan is “Keeping the American Dream Affordable.” It’s a promise that has guided both her professional life and her personal commitment to provide affordable housing for Colorado residents. A founding member of Funding Partners for Housing Solutions, Norton works to provide nonprofit bridge and construction loans to the developers of affordable rental housing in eight counties along Colorado’s Front Range, including Denver. A companion program makes long-term loans to homebuyers for downpayments or closing costs. These programs have helped more than 400 low-income homebuyers buy their first homes and provided 750 units of affordable rental housing.
Note: Linda Norton passed away in September 2007.
