Almeida stands at the forefront of the real estate industry as a distinguished top-producing Realtor and the visionary CEO and team leader of The American Dream Group at Coldwell Banker, located in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Rooted in a deep commitment to fostering sustainable homeownership within the Hispanic community in Texas, Almeida’s passion is the driving force behind his mission to help Latinos realize their dreams of owning a home. His journey, characterized by resilience and an unwavering pursuit of the American dream, began in Brazil.

Almeida’s success story is deeply intertwined with NAHREP, an organization he credits as fundamental to his achievements. His partnership with NAHREP has ignited his passion for empowering Latino families through homeownership, transcending mere transactions to achieve meaningful, life changing outcomes.
