2018 Women of Influence: Marisa Calderon

Executive Director of National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals

Marisa Calderon

Today’s real estate and mortgage professionals are aware of the size and importance of the Hispanic home-buying market and are quickly learning and finding ways to help more Hispanic consumers achieve homeownership.

A large portion of credit for increasing awareness on Hispanic homebuyers goes to the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals and its executive director, Marisa Calderon.

Frequently sought out as an expert in the Hispanic market, Calderon has been interviewed by numerous publications and she has spoken at events hosted by MBA, the FDIC and the National Fair Housing Alliance.

Last year, she served on the advisory board for both the Banc of California and the Fannie Mae Affordable Housing Advisory Council. And as the leader of NAHREP’s policy efforts, Calderon meets frequently with members of Congress to advocate for causes benefitting Hispanic homebuyers and homeowners.

Calderon also authors NAHREP’s annual publication, The State of Hispanic Homeownership, and serves as the key author and board secretary for its Hispanic Wealth Project, which has a stated goal of tripling the median household wealth of Hispanics by 2024.
