Stacy Borho Takes PAAR Affiliate Honor
By: Marilyn Titone Schaefer
AVP, Communications Director
For the second year in a row, the Peoria Area Association of REALTORS® (PAAR) has recognized an INB mortgage lender. Stacy Borho was recently given the organization’s Affiliate of the Year Award. Adam Lofgren was awarded the title in 2016. Another INB mortgage lender, John Lofgren, earned the award in 1995. The Affiliate of the Year Award recognizes an individual who is actively involved in the real estate industry and provides valuable services and support to members of PAAR and their own customers.
Stacy almost missed this year’s banquet. She believes in family first, so, at the last minute, her plan was to skip the PAAR banquet to watch her nephew play in a state tournament. But coworker Adam Lofgren told her she really needed to go because their boss, Aaron Sapp, would be there. Since it’s not an event Aaron would typically attend, Stacy had an inkling that she could be the 2017 winner.
Stacy earned the award after nearly two decades of experience in mortgage lending. She volunteers for PAAR, serving as the chair of the Housing Opportunity Committee and treasurer of PAAR CARES Foundation.
Though she’s been an active PAAR Affiliate member for many years, Stacy says, “The PAAR’s foundation is relatively new.” The group is just getting off the ground, and Stacy hopes her input can help PAAR have significant impact Peoria’s tri-county area. Stacy admits she is adamant about the many causes she serves. She is a board member for the Hult Center for Health Living. In addition, she helps make kids’ wishes come true as a wish granter for Make a Wish Illinois. She has also participated in mission trips to Haiti.
After receiving the Affiliate Award, another member of the CARES Foundation said that after seeing her “passion in action,” she knew Stacy was the right person for this award.
Professionally, Stacy has been recognized as one of the top 25 Women in Leadership and 40 Under 40 Business Leaders by Peoria Magazine.
PAAR has over 700 members engaged in all facets of the real estate industry. The organization advocates for property owners and on behalf of a healthy business community.
Stacy’s NMLS# is 689948; Adam’s NMLS# is 1087502; John’s NMLS# is 461250; Aaron’s NMLS# 447059.
