People were glued to their seats for the NAHREP Real Deal event including both Mike and Tom Ferry.
I almost spilled my drink a few weeks ago while I was watching the presidential debate. They actually talked about housing. And no, it wasn’t just, “let’s address homelessness” or “expand Section 8 housing,” they actually talked about HOMEOWNERSHIP and HOUSING SUPPLY.
I just wanted to drop a quick note to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.
No politics, no policy, no housing this week. Just familia, turkey, pozole, arroz con candules, pastelón, and lechon (and some major veggie action for all my fellow tofu lovers).

The sustained spread and success of Hispanic homeownership in the US continues to outpace the rest of the market. A new report from Freddie Mac indicates it is projected that 56% of all new homeowners will be Hispanic by 2030.
Bank of America’s recent Community Homeownership Commitment™, first introduced in April, has received positive feedback for its impact on first-time homebuyers, an audience which is increasingly comprised of Latinx consumers.
“More than 60% of U.S. Hispanics are millennials or younger, meaning they are just now aging into financial services experiences and major purchases such as homeownership,” explained 2019 NAHREP President David Acosta. Home purchases in the last decade have reflected this demographic shift, with Latinxs accounting for 63% of net U.S. homeownership growth between 2008 and 2018.
Radian Guaranty was a key participant in this year’s NAHREP national convention, co-sponsoring the Elevate Sales Summit alongside Freddie Mac.
I spent all of last week in Washington D.C. for my own version of “Capitol Hill Visits.” In the span of three days I met with 12 different offices, all members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus. It was cold in D.C. for this chica! I’ve now gotten used to living in sunny San Diego, but I do have to say I miss the fall. Why can’t San Diego have fall leaves? Can we import those and keep the sun?
