I don't see my name here 😉
It looks that the franchise with the most top 50 Hispanic agents is Century 21, followed by Keller Williams. Just an observation.
Yes, I noticed this too – many people from these two real estate companies are on the wave right now. But there are definitely many other successful Spanish-speaking realtors from different companies included – and that have great results in their jobs. Don’t forget to nominate other Hispanic realtors here, if you want.
