Bryan Greene speaks out frequently on the needs for housing production and other initiatives to help families access affordable homeownership. In his role at NAR, Greene has led the organization’s strategy in advocating for more housing supply and greater housing affordability for all consumers. This has included crafting the policies NAR would advocate before Congress, among federal agencies, and in the courts.

“Each day, I’m excited at the opportunity to use my skills honed from my service in government and the private sector to expand housing opportunities to all Americans,” says Greene. “My oversight of NAR’s policy development and advocacy offers me a view of how all of our issue areas intersect and can work in concert to advance our housing goals. I enjoy digging into the data to evaluate our effectiveness in advancing all segments of the housing market and adjusting our approaches until we achieve the desired results.”

In 2023, Greene’s advocacy helped accomplish a reduction in FHA Mortgage Insurance Premiums. In addition, his advocacy helped lead the FHA to increase the threshold dollar amount for Large Multifamily Loans. Also thanks to Greene’s work, the House Ways & Means Committee introduced a bill to incentivize the conversion of commercial property to residential units by offering a tax credit.

Greene’s advocacy also helped the Supreme Court issue a decision upholding a property owner’s entitlement to their surplus equity in their home last year. Greene’s advocacy also led to the FHFA rescinding a problematic fee on borrowers with a high debt-to-income ratio, and Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac eliminating fees for First-Time Homebuyer Products. His work also led to the passage of continuing resolution and reauthorization of the National Flood Insurance Program.
