MADISON, N.J., May 28, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Residential real estate leader Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY) affiliated agents once again represent a large portion of the annual National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP®) Top 250 Latino Agents Report for 2021. Honoring the top Latino real estate agents and teams from around the country, the Top 250 ranking features 65 independent sales agents affiliated with Realogy’s brands. All six of Realogy’s leading residential brands, including Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate, CENTURY 21®, Coldwell Banker®, Corcoran®, ERA®, and Sotheby’s International Realty®, are represented across the report’s various rankings.
According to NAHREP’s 2020 State of Hispanic Homeownership Report, the Latino homeownership rate increased in 2021 for the sixth consecutive year despite the health and economic challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic. The report also notes that housing inventory remains the main barrier to increasing Hispanic homeownership, and Latinos will ultimately lead the national homeownership rate for decades to come.
