SAN DIEGO— March 11, 2022– The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals® (NAHREP®) announced today that U.S. Senator Rick Scott of Florida will speak at the National Convention and Housing Policy Summit taking place at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel in Washington, D.C., March 14-16.
Prior to his election to the U.S. Senate, Rick Scott served two terms as the 45th Governor of Florida. Rick Scott grew up in public housing in the Midwest as his adoptive father, a World War II veteran and truck driver, and his mother, a store clerk, struggled to financially support their family. After marrying his high school sweetheart, Ann, Rick Scott joined the Navy, where he served active duty as a radar man aboard the USS Glover. He used the G.I. Bill to attend the University of Missouri, Kansas City, and eventually opened his first business – a donut shop. Rick Scott went on to run the world’s largest healthcare company and continues to fight every day so families across the state can have the same opportunities he had to live the American dream.
“NAHREP is honored to have Senator Rick Scott join the NAHREP National Convention and Policy Summit. He understands and appreciates the value of hard work, and is deeply committed to serving his country and advancing opportunities for sustainable homeownership for Floridians,” said Gary Acosta, Co-Founder & CEO, NAHREP.

We share common values of providing more opportunities for small business owners, achieving fair housing, advancing sustainable homeownership and revitalizing our economy,” said Daisy Lopez-Cid, 2018 NAHREP President and Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Premier Properties in Kissimmee, Florida.
