Over the weekend, we lost a highly respected and admired colleague, Dr. Frank Nothaft, who served as the Chief Economist for CoreLogic. His passing was sudden and unexpected.
Dr. Nothaft led the economics team at CoreLogic since 2015, responsible for analysis, commentary and forecasting in global real estate, insurance and mortgage markets. Previously, he was the Chief Economist at Freddie Mac, where he was seen as a top industry expert for over 25 years. He was a prodigious purveyor of data, the go-to expert for trends and forecasting and a trusted colleague and friend to many at CoreLogic and the broader housing industry. Dr. Nothaft was a brilliant spokesperson and brand ambassador, often seen and quoted on Bloomberg News, CNBC and the Wall Street Journal.
Dr. Nothaft was active in his local community through his volunteer commitments. He served on the Board of Directors of the non-profit Falls Church Housing Corporation, which owns Section 8 housing in northern Virginia, received the Freddie Mac Community Service Award and was also the recipient of the 2020 HousingWire Vanguard Award. Dr. Nothaft also served as an economist on the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.
Dr. Nothaft’s absence will be felt profoundly throughout the organization and beyond. Please join us in keeping Frank’s family and co-workers in your thoughts as they process this unbearable loss.
