Message From Our President - Kimberley Barnes-Henson
Dear HBREA Members, Supporters and Friends,
As the President, I am honored to serve this historic and prestigious institution.
This administration’s theme is twofold, “Increasing Homeownership Through Advocacy, Activism and Action” while “Building Wealth and Leaving a Legacy”. Both will serve to answer our National President’s call for 2 million new African American homeowners over the next 5 years. We are at a very pivotal time in our nation’s history. It is imperative that we not only regain the wealth loss, during the mortgage crisis. We must carefully plan, so that it is maintained and passed on to future generations.
HBREA’s first logo has been commissioned. The badge is our continued commitment to protect and serve Houston and the surrounding areas by our mission of “Democracy in Housing”.
This administration’s effort will be one of inclusivity as our goal is broad and far reaching. We will seek to engage across racial and industrial divides as real estate is the driving force of the American economy…its failures and/or successes impact us all.
Finally, I would like to say “thank you” to all the members, sponsors, family and friends who have and continue to contribute to the success of this organization.
In the Realtist spirit,
