Empowering real estate professionals to better serve their Hispanic clients ultimately increases the Hispanic homeownership rate. While NAHREP does NOT have specific homeownership products or programs geared to Hispanic consumers, local chapters often engage in homebuyer education events. NAHREP also engages in policy advocacy that makes homeownership more available to consumers and educates international companies and government officials on the issues affecting Hispanic homebuyers. Every year, NAHREP analyzes the demographic trends, entrepreneurial endeavors, and homeownership growth of the U.S. Latino population in the State of Hispanic Homeownership Report. NAHREP, in partnership with the Hispanic Wealth Project, also produces the annual State of Hispanic Wealth Report, which benchmarks how U.S. Latinos are faring when it comes to wealth creation, focusing on progress when it comes to net worth, income, homeownership, employer business growth, and the diversification of assets.

NAHREP is governed on a national level by a National Board of Directors that enacts the mission of the organization, provides financial and resource oversight, ensures ethical integrity and accountability, and determines, monitors and strengthens the organization’s programs and services. NAHREP directors are volunteers who are real estate professionals and other practitioners within the real estate industry.
NAHREP also receives guidance from a national Corporate Board of Governors (CBOG) consisting of representatives from the organization’s Premier National Partners and other professionals from the real estate, lending, housing and Latino advocacy industries. The CBOG issues recommendations on key issues for the organization.
Besides national leadership, NAHREP also has regional corporate boards of governors consisting of representatives from our regional partners that govern each region, as well as volunteer boards of directors for each chapter.
