NAHREP released its annual Top 250 Latino Real Estate Agents and Mortgage Originators Award in June. Every year the number of nominees increases significantly, making the award more competitive. In order to be considered for the award, nominees must be of Hispanic decent and provide documentation validating their production. It’s with great honor that NAHREP recognizes the top performing Latino housing professionals and their contributions to the Hispanic community at large. Considering only 4% of mortgage originators and 7% of real estate agents are of Hispanic origin it is important to note the vast influences that these individuals have on the market and the NAHREP mission. Increasing sustainable homeownership for Latinos must be done with purpose and conviction, and the men and women on the Top 250 list have shown remarkable dedication to this feat.
