The annual program celebrates mortgage industry executives for their vision and leadership in driving the success of their companies and furthering the industry.
Rappaport started Homespire with the mission of assisting homebuyers to responsibly and affordably turn their dream of homeownership into a reality. His vision and leadership have set Homespire Mortgage on a course of national growth and expansion, operating across 38 states, and achieving record-setting growth in 2020.

“It is an honor to be recognized as a ‘Lending Luminary’ by the team at PROGRESS in Lending,” said Rappaport. “This recognition is a great achievement not only for Todd and me, but for all of us at Homespire. Our success is the result of many hands, many minds and many hearts.”
With more than 20 years of industry experience, Sheinin has been an integral part of Homespire’s sustained success. Throughout the past year, he has been a catalyst for the company’s growth, recruiting top-level executives, branch managers and loan originators throughout the country while adding new branches in Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, North Carolina, Rhode Island, Virginia and Washington D.C. In addition, Sheinin has played a key role in driving Homespire’s digital transformation, including the development and implementation of HomespireGO®, the company’s newly released digital mortgage platform.
“I am thrilled to be named one of this year’s ‘Lending Luminaries,’” said Sheinin. “Homespire’s success would not be possible without the collaborative efforts of our amazing team and I look forward to seeing what we will achieve in 2021.”
