Welcome to the Carolina Planning Plan to Talk Podcast Series, where we profile fascinating people connected to the Department of City and Regional Planning at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
In this episode, we talk with Carolina Planning’s Roberto Quercia, Trudier Harris Distinguished Professor and Director of UNC Center for Community Capital. Roberto is a mortgage finance expert who leads major research projects in the areas of low-income homeownership, mortgage lending & predatory lending. He teaches courses in housing and public policy, real estate investment and affordable housing & personal finance and wealth building. We ask him how he got into planning, what projects he’s currently working on and how he brings his research into the classroom.
