Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 1, 2010
Houston residential real estate professionals, Yvonna Chavez and Maria Fields have launched Casa Latino North Houston, a real estate firm dedicated to serving multicultural homebuyers and home sellers with concentration on the Hispanic market. The company’s offices are located at 505 North Sam Houston Parkway East and officially opened March 1, 2010.
“Casa Latino North Houston’s mission is to provide exemplary service to Hispanic, multicultural, and underserved homebuyers and sellers with an emphasis on educating and equipping our customers to achieve the dream of home ownership,” explained Ms. Chavez. “Although we serve everyone regardless of their heritage or ethnicity, Casa Latino is the first national franchise designed to serve the unique needs of the Hispanic and multicultural homebuyer market.”
Ms. Fields emphasized that Casa Latino North Houston offers more than just traditional real estate services. “Our primary interest is not just to represent our clients in a real estate transaction,” she said. “Our goal is to become their trusted real estate advisors, always keeping the best interests of each customer as our main objective. We are striving for on-going, long-term relationships.”
Both Chavez and Fields are seasoned real estate professionals with extensive experience assisting multicultural customers. Chavez noted that her years as a military wife living in various parts of the United States as well as two foreign countries helped prepare her for her career as a Realtor. “The constant process of moving every few years, especially with young children, has helped me appreciate the advantages of home ownership and exposed me to every aspect of residential real estate”.
Prior to opening Casa Latino North Houston, Chavez had been a successful Realtor in the Houston market with a background in marketing and advertising sales. She served as 2008 president of NAHREP (National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals) and received the Houston Chapter’s Presidential Award for her accomplishments. She has also been president of the Sales & Marketing Council (SMC) of the Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA) and was named SMC’s Associate of the Year at the association’s annual PRISM (Professional Results in Sales & Marketing) Awards ceremony. Additionally, Chavez holds the Texas Affordable Housing Specialist designation from the Texas Association of Realtors and the Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification presented by the National Association of Realtors.
“My favorite part of real estate is helping buyers and investors find and negotiate the purchase or sale of their new home or properties,” Chavez said, “and I get immense satisfaction assisting first-time homebuyers.”
A native of the Rio Grande Valley, Fields moved to Houston in 1979, earned her real estate license and began her career with Keller Williams in Kingwood. She has extensive experience in investment properties, rehabilitating single-family homes, condominiums, country homes, acreage, waterfront properties and leases
