Anywhere Real Estate Inc., formerly known as Realogy Holdings Corp., has announced that its affiliated agents lead the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals’ (NAHREP) 2022 Top 250 Latino Agents Report, which recognizes the top-producing Latino agents across the United States, including Puerto Rico. With 50 independent agents included—more than any other company—Anywhere-affiliated agents comprise 20% of the list, the company said. All six leading residential real estate brands in the Anywhere portfolio, including Better Homes and Gardens® Real Estate, CENTURY 21®, Coldwell Banker®, Corcoran, ERA® and Sotheby’s International Realty® are represented in the report’s rankings, a release stated.
According to NAHREP’s 2021 State of Hispanic Homeownership Report, the Latino homeownership rate continued to increase in 2021 for the seventh consecutive year. While the report also notes that a dearth of housing supply and rising price points remain a significant barrier to many homebuyers, the Urban Institute predicts that Latinos will account for 70% of homeownership growth over the next 20 years.
“We are incredibly proud that the Anywhere family of brands is home to so many of the top-producing agents that represent the nation’s expanding community of Latino homebuyers,” said Ivonne Furneaux, vice president of diversity, equity and inclusion for Anywhere. “As Hispanic household formation continues to drive significant homeownership growth in the coming years, we remain committed to creating professional opportunities for diverse and representative professionals that can help to empower everyone’s next move.”
Anywhere is dedicated to creating a culture of diversity, equity and inclusion, and is a vocal advocate for equal opportunity and fair housing, the company says. Its brands also offer a number of initiatives focused on driving diversity, such as CENTURY 21’s Empowering Latinas program, which helps Latina entrepreneurs obtain their real estate license and prepares them for success in the real estate industry through a network of support.
