Irvine, CA—The National Association of Women in Real Estate Businesses (NAWRB) in partnership with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Santa Ana District Office presented the Women in Housing Financial Fitness Road Show this month at the Lutron Experience Center in Irvine, CA.
NAWRB’s Inaugural Women in Housing Financial Fitness Road Show is a first-of-its-kind, breakthrough program for women in all industries within the housing economy. More than just tools to navigate women’s existing business through the changing terrain, NAWRB’s Women in Housing Financial Fitness Road Show reached a whole new level. Utilizing a specialized hybrid of women in housing and women in government outreach, women can take advantage of the fast track niche. By connecting women with federal and local programs, set- asides, funding options and contracting opportunities available to grow their businesses both vertically and horizontally, women in housing will have the awareness to sustainable growth and live beyond commission to commission.
Hosted by Morgan Stanley – Richard Downer First Vice President, Wealth Advisor Vivian Afriyie, a Morgan Stanley financial advisor, opened the event in dramatic fashion showcasing asset based loans vs. traditional income and credit based loans. Recently, Morgan Stanley closed a 150 million dollar commercial real estate loan in 6 weeks. “Bringing the shock treatment with our takeaways from $25,000 SBA business loans to the $200 million dollar Morgan Stanley Diversified Securities for clients, really ignited the awareness in the room,” stated Patno, CEO and Founder of NAWRB.
