Leo Pareja, NAHREP President said, “Last year Hispanics accounted for nearly 75 percent of the growth in U.S. homeownership. Those gains are largely due to individuals like the top producers on our list who continue to drive Hispanic homeownership in their local markets. They are the gateway to the demographic changes in the housing market and represent the vitality of our industry today and in the future.”
According to NAHREP, some of the fastest Hispanic population growth in recent years has taken place in the South and other non-traditional Hispanic markets.

Every team member is well coached in their part of the process, and communicates clearly to the client so they know what to expect every step of the way. Lisa is a true customer service professional and a great leader.”
