WASHINGTON (June 28, 2021) – National Association of Realtors® President Charlie Oppler issued the following statement after President Joe Biden nominated Julia Gordon to serve as the next commissioner of the Federal Housing Administration. Gordon is currently the president of the National Community Stabilization Trust, a Washington, D.C.-based housing non-profit.

"NAR is thrilled that President Biden has selected Julia Gordon to lead the FHA," said Oppler, a Realtor® from Franklin Lakes, N.J., and the CEO of Prominent Properties Sotheby's International. "Julia's outstanding career in the industry has prepared her to handle the complex range of issues facing America's housing market today. She has also shown a deep commitment to removing the barriers to homeownership for communities of colors and to addressing the racial homeownership gaps that persist in this country. NAR looks forward to working with her on these and other issues in the years ahead, particularly as we continue our fight for policies to increase the supply of safe, affordable housing in America."

The National Association of Realtors® is America's largest trade association, representing more than 1.4 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
