Foster Stanback is an expert in building and maintaining financial wealth. He joined Landon Taylor in 2011 to help launch the Wealth Triangle Institute. Foster teaches key wealth-building principles that were handed down to him by his father, who was fortunate enough to learn directly from some of the most respected authorities in the financial industry. Foster’s contributions to the Wealth Triangle Institute provide sound wisdom on the best methods to achieving sustainable financial independence.
However, the best part about Foster’s advice is that it is free from any ulterior motive. He does not sell financial products, nor does he earn any commission for referring you to those who do sell them. Foster manages his own multi-million-dollar portfolio. He simply has a passion for educating everyday people on very uncomplicated and straightforward wealth-building principles, which can be implemented easily without having to pay tens of thousands of dollars of fees to asset managers who may not have their clients’ best interests at heart.

Our approach is to work with our members and make certain they are up to speed on the latest in real estate by creating quality educational events that also allow them to network with other successful professionals in the industry where the education continues by sharing best business practices.
We add a Latino flair to our events that helps agents stay culturally connected to the community they serve. Our members in turn push forward that information and vitality through their businesses and setLatinos up to be successful homeowners.
NAHREP plays a huge role in advocating for public policy that creates homeownership opportunities for low and moderate-income families. This is done through research and the release of publications that allow us to share informed policy recommendations to the White House, members of Congress and other housing and finance officials. Each year, our leading members visit the Capitol and have one-on-one conversations with members of Congress as the Voice for Hispanic Real Estate®!
