The Role of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals in the Recovery Era
By Tino Diaz,

New regulations alone won't heal what broke our real estate market. Lawmakers can't legislate character and integrity. The only real cure that will make a difference now in the housing recovery is our own deeds and a renewed commitment to ethics and good business practices. The buck stops with us, NAHREP practitioners.

Opening Remarks
Mayor John Hickenlooper
In 2002, John W Hickenlooper, restaurateur, affordable housing developer, and brewpub owner had never run for an elected office. Three years later, Time magazine ranked him among the best five large city mayors in the country. Mayor Hickenlooper is a friend of small business and real estate concerns and was an early and instrumental supporter helping CAHREP secure the 2003 NAHREP National Convention and Expo in Denver winning over Miami, New York City,  and San Diego.
