The National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) has announced the appointment of Leo Pareja as 2016 president-elect and four new additions to the board. Pareja has been a real estate broker for over a decade and nationally recognized as an industry expert. 

“Leo Pareja is an outstanding example of the talented, successful professionals that make up our NAHREP membership”,  said Gary Acosta, CEO and co-founder of NAHREP. “The year 2015 was an exciting year for our members and supporters as we grew our chapter programming, launched the Hispanic Wealth Project and our ’53 Million & One’ tour. We are excited to welcome Leo to our leadership team and look forward to an even more successful 2016.”

Previously recognized as the number one Keller Williams agent in the world, Pareja is head of the Leo Pareja Team with Keller Williams in the Washington, D.C. area.

In 2011, he was acknowledged as one of the “30 Under 30 Class” by Realtor Magazine and his team was ranked as the number five team in the U.S. by unit count according to the Wall Street Journal that same year. His tenure at NAHREP began in 2012 with the founding of the Metro D.C. Chapter and shortly after he was elected to become a director of the national board.
