No, every one of every background is welcome. Though many of the members are from NAHREP and funding will support the HWP, as well as help build Angels and Founders in the Latino Community.

No, it’s what many investors focus on, but we’ll have investors from all areas joining the community and as speakers. Everyone is open to invest wherever they like, and we cover all types of areas.

Annual fees for the program are listed below:

  • $295 NAHREP Platinum members

The program is set up to be asynchronous and remote, but we will also be planning IRL events in various cities and timed with Real Estate industry events.

The program begins October 5th and runs 12 months. All initial Cohort members are locked in at their rate for life as long as they continue their membership with NAHREP. The membership auto renews at the end of the 12 months. You can cancel at any time for a prorated refund for the full remaining months.

Yes, we want founders and operators who want to be investors can be a part of the community too.

Yes, details will be shared on this program.

We will have partners who can support this.

We hope so, but there is no guarantee. Diversification is the key to a great portfolio and part of learning what works best for you and your strategy. Never send or wire funds unless you trust the contact. There is no requirement to invest in any deal. You choose to invest when you are ready.

If you decide to take the Series 65 exam, your fee may be covered by the program!
