The Nashville Business Journal, the Nashville City Paper, and the Tennessean report on the first official meeting of the Middle Tennessee chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals.
"'Latin Americans come to the United States looking for the American dream they hear about,' said Miguel Torres, a program coordinator for the nonprofit Affordable Housing Resources Inc. 'Owning a home is at the center of this dream. … (But) there are many obstacles.'"
"A new group led by Torres is trying to remove some of those obstacles. At its first official meeting late last week, the Middle Tennessee chapter of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals pledged to increase home ownership among Hispanics in the area, and in the process help local real estate professionals better serve what many in the industry say will be a vital segment of the U.S. housing market in the decades to come."
"Other local chapter officers are Viviana Milam, vice-president; Fabian Bedne, secretary; Fabiola Lemus, treasurer and Dianne Clayton, parliamentarian. New board of director members elected and confirmed at Thursday’s meeting are Rob Harvey, Brian Spicer, Aaron Armstrong, Andrew Snyder, Tomas Tejeda, Alex Delgado, Renee White, Tim Taylor, Benny Lee Santiago and Mark Gill."
