After reviewing more than 2,000 nominations, the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals® (NAHREP®) named three eXp Realty agents among the Top 10 Latino Agents and Top 10 Latino Teams in the U.S. — Arturo Flores, Veronica Figueroa and Monica Foster.
NAHREP announced the awards in its eleventh annual Top 250 Latino Agents Report on June 9, recognizing outstanding Latino real estate agents and teams from across the country. The Top 250 list honors agents who have closed an outstanding number of transactions in an effort to increase the rate of sustainable Hispanic homeownership.
“Each candidate brings a unique story of personal triumph, overcoming adversity, devotion to their trade, and work every day in their local market to make homeownership a reality for families,” the report website reads. “NAHREP believes in the importance of recognizing such hard working people who make homeownership their personal mission.”
