WASHINGTON, D.C., June 12, 2014–LATINA Style Inc., the premier company addressing the needs of the Latina professional and business owner in the U.S., will honor Milly B. Kammerdiener, Broker/Owner of Newhomeprograms.com, LLC., with the “Latina Entrepreneur of the Year” award in recognition for her achievements in business and commitment to the Latino community. This year LATINA Style is celebrating 16 years of the LATINA Style Business Series (LSBS), making its third stop in Houston, TX on June 18th, 2014 at the J.W. Marriott Hotel.
The LATINA Style Business Series is part of the largest and most successful business development program for Latina entrepreneurs in the nation. Since its launching in 1998, the program has visited over 110 cities across the nation with over 31,000 Latina entrepreneurs participating. The program’s emphasis is on creating a solid business foundation for the Latina entrepreneur.
Kammerdiener started her company as a marketing website for first-time home buyers in the Houston Metropolitan area in 2005. After four years serving the needs of Houston area home buyers, Newhomeprograms.com LLC became a Real Estate Brokerage Corporation in Florida in 2009 and then in Texas in 2010. Kim Kelley, president of the National Association of Women Business Owners (NAWBO) in Houston, credits Kammerdiener’s devotion to serving others and setting an example as to why she is the perfect candidate for this award. “Despite her humble beginnings, Milly has done what no other Latin American has done…created a private-owned National Real Estate company that has caught the eyes of billion dollar banks and national mortgage companies because of her company’s strategic relationships and willingness to serve people,” she says.
In fact, Newhomeprograms.com LLC offers free credit education to the Latin community as well as an International Buyer Program to Latin America. Kammerdiener is a member of numerous organizations and boards including: the National Realtor Association, Texas Realtor Association, Houston Realtor Association, Certified International Property Specialists, Texas Notary, Northgate Crossing Home Owners Association, and is also a secretary for a Latin American/United States Christian Ministry.
