NAHREP Releases Nation’s First Ever Top Latino Real Estate Agent 2012 Rankings

The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP),

the nation’s leading trade association for Hispanics in the housing

industry, released the industry’s first ever comprehensive list of the

top-producing Latino residential real estate agents in the U.S. today. A

list of the top 250 rankings is available in a downloadable digital file

at www.nahrep.org.

The list is the result of analysis conducted by NAHREP of local market

MLS (Multiple Listing Service) data in the nation’s leading key markets

with a concentration of Hispanics and through self-nomination. An

independent consultant performed the analysis on behalf of the

association. More than 10,000 agents and about 100 self-nominated agents

were evaluated as part of the rankings. The list of top 250 Latino

agents is based on total transactions closed in 2011. Annual

transactions for the top producers ranged from 33 to 584 for the top

agent.

“This is the first ever recorded list of the nation’s top producing

Latino real estate agents and a sign of what’s to come,” said NAHREP

President Gerardo “Jerry” Ascencio. “With Latinos emerging as a

homebuyer force in the nation’s housing market, the significance of this

list of performers is going to grow exponentially.”
