Taylor Morrison Home Funding
Tawn Kelley has always believed in using finance as a sales tool. Believing that the mortgage is as important as the home purchase, she focused her career around new construction lending. She opened her own mortgage company and management business in 2001, partnering with production homebuilders like Taylor Morrison, Mattamy Homes and Neal Communities. Kelley eventually sold her successful businesses to Taylor Morrison in 2009 and now
serves as president of Taylor Morrison Home Funding, as well as president of its financial services joint ventures. Kelley established a free qualification improvement program called Able, Ready, Own in 2011 to help families become better positioned for a home purchase. The program has graduated more than a thousand participants and has helped improved credit scores by an average of 50 points by educating consumers on their credit profile.
