If there is one deliverable at NAHREP that stands out above the rest, it is leadership development. Knowing that every year NAHREP “graduates” 60+ chapter presidents who have managed a board, organized events, and improved their presentation skills, gives me a great sense of pride. During our short tenure, NAHREP has produced some of the most impressive leaders in the market today. Our current national president, Leo Pareja, is at the top of that list. Leo possesses a rare combination of analytical skills, work ethic and people skills. He can sit down and talk shop with any top Realtor® and also share a cigar with the CEO of a major financial institution. He is the consummate entrepreneur and is nicely positioned to put a dent in the universe in the coming years. NAHREP hosts its annual Leadership Academy next year in Washington, DC in February. All of NAHREP’s top leaders will be in attendance.
