Peoples Bank Mortgage Loan Team Hosts Women’s Homebuying Brunch in Whatcom County


Submitted by Peoples Bank

In celebration of National Homeownership Month this June, Peoples Bank is excited to host its first-ever Women’s Homebuying Brunch. The brunch takes place on June 8th from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Bellingham. This event invites women of all ages and backgrounds to come together for a fun and informative event to learn all about the homebuying process. The brunch will feature an industry update, realtor panel, advice about the mortgage process, and the importance of title and escrow.

This event is perfect for any woman considering buying their first home, looking to upgrade, or wanting to purchase an investment property. Attendees will enjoy a delicious spread of food and drinks while meeting other women homebuyers and gaining valuable insights from the expert speakers.

According to the National Association of Realtors, single women make up 19% of homeowners; nearly double that of single men. In the past 40 years, the share of single women buyers has consistently outpaced the share of single men buyers which is one reason why Peoples Bank wants to highlight and empower women in the community to realize their full potential as future and current homeowners.

“We know the homebuying journey can be a challenge and there is a lot to consider when making such a big life decision. We want to help women homebuyers by providing a fun atmosphere where women are encouraged to ask questions and leave feeling more confident in their ability to become homeowners,” says Jennifer Evans-Thompson, Peoples Bank Chief Mortgage Banking Officer.

Registration is free but space is limited. Please register for the event here and make sure to answer all the questions on the order form so the panel can get a feel for what each attendee is looking for. The brunch will take place in the Peoples Bank Admin/Laurel Building, located at 3101 Newmarket Street, Bellingham, WA 98226 in the old Scotty Brown’s Building across the parking lot from the Peoples Bank Barkley Financial Center. Parking in the area is free.
