“Brenda Torpy has been an amazing resource to our organization. Shared equity housing was new territory for me and NeighborWorks Salt Lake, and having an experienced professional in our corner has been key to the development of our own community land trust. Her national recognition for her expertise is well deserved, and we highly recommend her services.”
