National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals Names Top 250 Latino Agents in the United States
The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals® (NAHREP®) Top 250 Latino Agents Award annually recognizes the industry’s leading Hispanic real estate agents and brokers from across the country. For the third year in a row, the number of RE/MAX agents included in the ranking far surpassed the number of agents of other national real estate brands.
“RE/MAX salutes all of the agents included in this year’s NAHREP Top 250 Latino Agents Award ranking,” said Mike Reagan, RE/MAX, LLC, Senior Vice President, Business Alliances, and a member of the NAHREP Corporate Board of Governors. “It’s incredibly rewarding to see dozens of RE/MAX agents, more than any other brand, included in this year’s prestigious list. It’s a testament to their dedication and the superior customer service they provide their clients every day.”
An impressive 67 agents affiliated with RE/MAX were recognized in this year’s ranking, six more than last year and 30 more than the closest competitor. In fact, RE/MAX agents included in the ranking nearly exceeded the next two competitors combined:
-RE/MAX 67 agents
-Keller Williams 37 agents
-Century 21 31 agents
-Coldwell Banker 16 agents
-ERA 8 agents
RE/MAX has five agents represented in the top 25:
-Cristina Edelstein, RE/MAX Results, Plymouth, Minnesota, 386 sides
-Mario Negron, RE/MAX Pioneers, Cypress, Texas, 364 sides
-Veronica Figueroa, RE/MAX Innovation, The Figueroa Team, Orlando, Florida,
-Monica Foster, RE/MAX Space Center, The Monica Foster Team, Houston, Texas
-Luis Ortiz, RE/MAX Partners, Berwyn, Illinois, 203 sides
The NAHREP Top 250 Latino Agents Award list, now in its sixth year of publication, recognizes agents whose hard work and dedication has led them to close an outstanding number of transactions in an effort to increase the rate of sustainable Hispanic homeownership in communities across the country. The agents included in this year’s ranking represent a combined total of 25,945 transaction sides from January through December 2016 and over $6.07 billion in total aggregate volume. This year’s honorees were selected from a record-breaking 900 agents considered, the largest pool of candidates for the award to date.
Other national surveys have demonstrated the high productivity of RE/MAX agents. RE/MAX recently announced that its agents outperformed agents with other real estate brands in the 2017 REAL Trends 500 survey. Associates affiliated with the RE/MAX network regularly average double the number of transaction sides per agent when compared with competitors in the annual survey of large brokerages. RE/MAX associates included in the survey on average outsold competing agents with a ratio of more than two to one and averaged 17.2 transaction sides while agents with competitors averaged 7.8. The RE/MAX agent average of 17.2 transaction sides led all national franchises in the ranking.
With a presence in over 100 countries and territories, the RE/MAX network’s global footprint is unmatched by any other real estate brand. The franchisor’s total agent count grew 6.8 percent in 2016. Nobody in the world sells more real estate than RE/MAX, as measured by residential transaction sides, and more than 110,000 agents worldwide are a part of the RE/MAX network.

Real agents discuss why they choose REMAX for their real estate business
Indeed researchers analyzed the job postings of the 50 metro areas with the most postings on Indeed.com and Orlando, not surprisingly, finds itself second on the list of top metros for job seekers. Indeed evaluated four key considerations in the job hunt: local job market favorability, average salary adjusted for cost of living, employers’ score for work-life balance and job security/advancement opportunities in Indeed’s review database.
What does Orlando have to offer on top of our blue skies and warm weather? Per Indeed’s research, Orlando offers some of the highest scores for work-life balance, job security and advancement, as well as performing 98% higher than other cities in job market favorability.
While Orlando is best known for our large leisure and hospitality industry presence, the trade and transportation industries follow closely behind. And with the recent opening of BRIDG in Osceola County, growing number of startup tech companies planting roots in Orlando and tech companies relocating and expanding here, the opportunities for job seekers are diverse.
With a thriving tech scene, supportive business community and a climate that caters to a quality work-life balance, we are sure to see Orlando continue to stay on top in years to come.
