Every week, we ask a real estate professional for their thoughts on the top trends in real estate.
This week, we talked with Ron Cooper, the president of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers, the nation’s oldest minority trade association. A real estate veteran with more than 30 years of experience, Ron is the founder/owner of R.S. Cooper & Associates, a firm that specializes in maintaining, marketing and disposing REO properties. He and NAREB are currently preparing for the four-part National Mid-Winter Conferences, which will take place in Oakland, Memphis, Philadelphia and Chicago; the theme will be “Rebuilding Wealth through Black Homeownership.”
The National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) was formed in 1947 out of a need to secure the right to equal housing opportunities regardless of race, creed, or color. NAREB has 90 chapters located nationwide and publishes annually The State of Housing in Black America (SHIBA) Report. NAREB headquarters is located at 9831 Greenbelt Rd., Lanham, MD 20706.
