Century 21 Real Estate And Hispanic Heritage Foundation Celebrate Newest Houston Real Estate Agents With “Empowering Latinas” Scholarship Program

Scholarship and Mentoring Program Inspires Promising Latina Agents to Deliver the Extraordinary

MADISON, N.J., May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Century 21 Real Estate LLC, in partnership with the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, presented yesterday the 40 newly-licensed real estate agents of the "Empowering Latinas" program, which awards scholarships to help Latina entrepreneurs earn a real estate license. The Houston winners were selected from more than 285 local area applicants seeking to achieve their dream of a career in real estate. Among the new licensees are sales executives, personal trainers, accountants, housewives, and legal assistants.

"At Century 21 Real Estate we understand the importance of providing opportunities to attract young, diverse agents into the real estate industry," said Michael Miedler, president and chief executive officer of Century 21 Real Estate. "Through this program, we are able to identify that next generation of leaders and better equip them to reach their own personal career goals. Each one of these entrepreneurs embodies the relentless spirit of the CENTURY 21® brand and we can’t wait to watch them achieve extraordinary things."

Each honoree received a scholarship to cover the 180-hour real estate academy course tuition fees as well as the fees to take the Texas real estate agent exam. In addition, each awardee was paired with a Houston-area CENTURY 21 affiliated broker as a mentor offering them the opportunity to hone their craft with a trusted industry professional. This year’s awardees were honored at a special celebratory event last night hosted by Maria Esther Mendez, TV personality and host of "Univision Houston".

"As a mom of 5 children, I decided to pursue real estate because I wanted to make a change in my career and find a way to help others in my community achieve their dreams of owning a home," said Yulitzia Fuentes, a 2019 scholarship recipient. "Before joining the scholarship program, I worked as a waitress, receptionist, manager of a legal office and sales director. Thanks to this opportunity I now have the tools and inspiration to focus on my goals and become a leader with the support of professionals in the real estate industry. I’m excited to join the ranks of the relentless CENTURY 21 affiliated agents making their mark right here in Texas."

Houston firefighters get layoff notices, demotion letters under Prop B implementation, union says

Houston firefighters get layoff notices, demotion letters under Prop B implementation, union says

Houston firefighters have started to receive layoff notices amid the implementation of Proposition B, Houston Professional Fire Fighters Association President Marty Lancton said in a statement Wednesday.

Houston City Council voted last week to layoff 220 firefighters to help offset firefighter raises mandated by the voter-approved proposition. The union said the firefighters received the notices via email Tuesday in what Lancton called a "slash-and-burn plan" from Mayor Sylvester Turner.

ON HOUSTONCHRONICLE.COM: Council members, fire union spar over campaign contributions

Lancton also expressed disappointment with Houston Fire Chief Samuel Peña over the layoffs.

"We are deeply disappointed that Samuel Peña has become the first fire chief in Houston history to willingly execute mass layoffs and demotions of firefighters," Lancton said in a statement. "From the city’s founding to the Great Depression, to two world wars and deep downturns of the energy industry, no fire chief had taken this course of action until today. Chief Peña now is alone among all Houston fire chiefs in that dubious distinction."

Hundreds of HFD personnel also received demotion notices Wednesday, according to a letter provided to Chron.com. The firefighters union estimates upwards of 450 HFD personnel will be demoted.

In both notices, Peña addresses the personnel by saying the decision to layoff and demote HFD personnel was a "business decision."

Mayor Sylvester Turner issued the following statement regarding the notice of layoffs:

Proposition B came without a funding source as it adds $80 million to $100 million a year to the city’s bottom line. At the same time, the city is experiencing a $117 million budget gap, with the cost of Prop B added on top of that.

By law, the city must balance its budget before the start of the next fiscal year, July 1.
The City asked Patrick "Marty" Lancton of the firefighters’ association to phase in Prop B over five years to avoid any layoffs of firefighters and municipal workers. He refused and is demanding the immediate implementation of Prop B. The City is doing precisely that. but it will require layoffs to balance the city’s budget.

On Wednesday, April 24, city council voted to lay off 220 firefighters to help balance the budget. The 60-day layoff notices were delivered to each firefighter on April 30.
Prior to that, 67 fire cadets received notice that they will be laid off in 60 days and 47 municipal workers received notice.
In the absence of a phased-in approach, the City’s options are limited when we must balance our budget by the end of June.

On April 18, State District Judge Tanya Garrison ordered all parties to attend mediation until a settlement is achieved or the mediator determines they have reached an impasse.

The mediation resumes Thursday afternoon on Thursday, May 2, 2019.

Locale secures funding to turn more Houston apartments into short-term rentals

Locale secures funding to turn more Houston apartments into short-term rentals

What do a rooftop pool, valet parking and room service have in common? All customary hotel amenities, they are also a part of daily life for residents of the Latitude Med Center Apartments.

"The line between a boutique hotel and an upscale apartment building continues to blur as apartment amenities become more and more incredible," said former hotelier Nitesh Gandhi. That’s part of the reason he left the hotel business to found Locale, an example of what has become known as the aparthotel industry.

Aparthotels enter long-term leases with apartment buildings, furnish the units with stylish furniture and rent to business travelers and Airbnb vacationers. They aim to provide all the luxuries you would expect from a hotel as well as the conveniences — a full kitchen, a washer and dryer — of a home.

SHORT-TERM RENTALS: Airbnb and others target unmet needs of Medical Center patients

Locale’s portfolio includes roughly 30 units in the Latitude Med Center Apartments. The Austin-based company employs five people on its Houston team, and has plans to expand. On Tuesday, the company announced it had raised $2.5 million in seed round funding, which it will use in part to expand its Houston listings to 65 or 70 units from 50 units in the coming months.

The units are located in the Texas Medical Center, where the main clients are patient families, and the Galleria, which caters more to business people and leisure travelers. Locale also hopes to secure more units downtown.

The Texas Medical Center and downtown are also drawing other aparthotel companies, such as Vacasa, which began partnering with real estate developers and property managers to provide short-term housing in November.

At that time, Joshua Viner, senior manager of Vacasa Multifamily, told the Chronicle the industry had seen an increase in guest demand for urban short-term rentals. "We’ve had property management companies reach out to us interested in improving the vacancy rates in their portfolios."

Gandhi described the model as a "win-win" for developers who improve their vacancy rates and customers who receive hotel-level services.

Auberbach Funds and Blue Magma Residential buy Houston apartment property

Auberbach Funds and Blue Magma Residential buy Houston apartment property

Auerbach Funds and Blue Magma Residential have acquired Park Texas Apartments, an apartment community in Houston. No financial terms were disclosed.

PRESS RELEASE

A partnership between Auerbach Funds and Blue Magma Residential has recently acquired “Park Texas Apartments”, a 78,960 Square Foot, 587-unit Class “C” Apartment Community in Houston TX.

HOUSTON, March 5, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Located at 11911 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Park Texas Apartments currently has 249 uninhabitable units out of 587. These units are in their current condition due to a variety of factors including hurricane damage. The Partnership plans to make a substantial investment into the rehabilitation of the asset, including repairing the defunct units, renovating the clubhouse, and performing necessary roof and mechanical repairs, landscaping, driveway and common area improvements.

Park Texas Apartments is located approximately halfway between interstate 610 and Sam Houston Tollway, near Hobby Airport in the Southeastern Houston submarket. This immediate area has seen rapid revitalization and growth in recent years. Not only is the site located within a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone, but the complex will also benefit from several substantial investments in the area including the $44.6 million Veterans Home project and corresponding roadwork extension funded by the State of Texas and U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, and a $72 million construction project for the new Sterling Aviation High School.

Of the acquisition, Peter Auerbach, CEO of Auerbach funds stated, “We believe that investing in heavy value-add multifamily can be very successful in growing submarkets in established cities like Houston, and are looking forward to contributing to the velocity in the Southeast submarket.”

Reuven Oded, CEO of Blue Magma added, “We plan on creating a community by delivering an improved product at market rates, which would provide not only strong returns for the investment, but also enhance the quality of life for our tenants.”

Auerbach Funds is a New York-based real estate private equity fund manager with over 2.1 million square feet under management in 8 states throughout the continental US with a total asset value in excess of $250 million. Blue Magma Residential is a Tampa, FL-based real estate investment and management firm with a 20 – plus year track record and over 8,000 apartment units throughout Florida, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and Texas.
