NAHREP's ongoing efforts are further complemented by the Hispanic Wealth Project, an initiative aimed at advancing Latino economic mobility and wealth building.

As the real estate and mortgage industries continue to evolve, the contributions of Latino professionals will remain crucial. The NAHREP Top 250 Latino Mortgage Originators list not only celebrates past achievements but also sets the stage for future successes. With leaders like Norma Guerrero Cowes and Armando SanMiguel paving the way, the future of Latino homeownership looks bright.

In line with this vision, the Hispanic Wealth Project aims to achieve a 50 percent or greater rate of US Hispanic homeownership, increase the first-year success rate of Hispanic-owned small businesses by 50 percent, and boost the number of Hispanic households owning non-cash financial assets by 25 percent. These goals are essential as homeownership remains the primary vehicle for wealth creation in the middle class, driving broader investments in education, small-business formation, and more.
