RE/MAX, LLC President Geoff Lewis will participate as a panelist at theÂ 2016 NAHREP Housing Policy & Hispanic Lending ConferenceÂ held this week at the Georgetown Fairmont Hotel in Washington, D.C. Tomorrow afternoon, Lewis will share his perspectives on the current real estate market on the â€śBusiness Opportunity Townhall: Real Estate Industryâ€ť panel.
â€śThe NAHREP housing policy conference is a great place to connect with some of the most influential professionals in our industry,â€ť Lewis says. â€śNot only are these conference attendees real estate leaders in their local communities, but theyâ€™re committed to improving important policies here in Washington for the benefit of both consumers and REALTORSÂ®.â€ť
RE/MAX is proud to be a Diamond Sponsor of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) and about 30 RE/MAX Affiliates who are NAHREP members have traveled to Washington to be part of the annual policy conference. Some of these Affiliates were also invited to attend a special White House briefing on housing, given this morning at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building.
NAHREP released its annual State of Hispanic Homeownership Report earlier today, which shows that homeownership among Hispanics increased last year from 45.6 percent to 46.1 percent, while the overall rate of homeownership in the U.S. decreased. A growing number of homeowners reflects the Hispanic communityâ€™s significant economic influence and purchasing power.
â€śRE/MAX has built a strong presence in many Hispanic communities across the country, and our agents in those areas are providing their clients with the high level of customer service that RE/MAX is known for,â€ťÂ Lewis adds.
RE/MAX agents dominated the 2015 NAHREP Top 250 Latino Agent survey, placing more agents in the prestigious ranking than any other real estate organization. With 61 qualifying agents, RE/MAX had twice as many agents recognized than the closest competitor.
As part of the franchisorâ€™s recently launched 2016 ad campaign, RE/MAX will distribute Spanish language TV and radio spots to media outlets in several U.S. markets.
