Mortgage association president apologizes to Quicken Loans

The president of the Michigan Mortgage Lenders Association issued an apology to Quicken Loans on Wednesday after making "regrettable comments" about the company to Michigan Public Radio.

The 450-word apology letter from Jim Wickham addresses comments he made in a Feb. 15 story titled "Data analysis: 'Modern-day redlining' happening in Detroit and Lansing."

"In this instance, I failed a long-standing and highly valued member of the MMLA," he said in the letter, referencing the Detroit-based mortgage lender, which is an MMLA Platinum Corporate Partner. "This was an enormous mistake and I want to offer my most sincere apologies to Quicken Loans and its team members who have worked tirelessly to both transform the mortgage process and revitalize the city of Detroit."

Quicken Loans spokespeople did not provide comment Wednesday evening.

The MPR article focuses on the issue of redlining — the practice of denying loans to those deemed to be financial risks.
