This panel will be moderated by REALTOR® Sonia Anaya, a Federal Political Coordinator for U.S. Rep Luis Gutierrez and broker/owner of America Real Estate.
Panel focuses on policy issues affecting the real estate industry and nuances and implications for Latinos. While most matters of policy affect the overall marketplace, are there specific points that hit the Latino marketplace with greater intensity? What are some points to consider and areas of policy that you need to be aware of to better understand client needs.
Opportunities: Local Latino Trends and Solutions for Success
Loretta Alonzo, CRB, GRI, will moderate this session. Alonzo is a former IAR president and serves as vice chair of the NAR Housing Opportunity Committee. She is broker-owner of Century 21 Alonzo.
This session will give perspective on what is happening “on the ground” in the Latino real estate markets. Two “teams” which include a REALTOR® and a lender will focus on both the Residential markets and the Commercial markets. Who’s buying, who’s selling, what are current latino trends in the marketplace. What do you need to know to succeed?
Opportunities: Global Success Can Be Closer Than You Think

It is no secret that real estate has “gone global.” Have you ever looked at yourself as someone who would be an international business expert. If you have ever sold a home or commercial property to someone from a different country or culture, guess what? You are involved in international business! This panel will share how to best prepare yourself to be involved in a transaction in a culturally nuanced way to better serve your client. Whether it is a transaction here in your backyard or one across the globe, you will hear the information through the lens of Latino culture.
