After more than seven years with the organization, the research director of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP), Alejandro Becerra, has announced his retirement.

Becerra joined NAHREP in 2013 and led the development and analysis of data of the organization’s annual State of Hispanic Homeownership Report. He was also instrumental in cementing NAHREP’s reputation as a source of information for policymakers and industry stakeholders.

“Alejandro is truly someone who has given their life and career to champion the voice of Latinos,” NAHREP 2020 President Sara Rodriguez said. “He is the person that will stand up and share incredible data and ask ‘What about Latinos’ no matter where he is.”

“For several decades Alejandro Becerra has been the most accurate and comprehensive source of information concerning Latinos and housing,” said former HUD Secretary Henry Cisneros. “He has collected and interpreted data concerning homeownership, affordability, housing conditions, rental patterns, and future trends. In short, decision-makers and advocates across the nation know that the first call they need to make to understand the housing needs of Latinos is Alejandro Becerra of NAHREP. He will be missed.”
