Since entering the real estate profession in 2017, Zapata has been an active leader in the LGBT+ community and a staunch advocate for equal housing opportunities. As a proud trans woman, she supports the LGBT+ community in many ways, including her role as founder and president of NAGLREP's San Antonio chapter, making her the first transgender chapter president for the organization. Additionally, Zapata holds leadership or board positions at San Antonio's LGBT Pride Center, the Transgender Education Network of Texas and the San Antonio LGBT Chamber of Commerce-roles she has used to advocate for fair housing and protections for the LGBT+ community.
'It's been an honor to get to know Jamie over the years through NAGLREP, as she truly represents the very best of our organization,' said Jeff Berger, founder, president and CEO of NAGLREP. 'Her remarkable story and success in the real estate industry are an inspiration to countless professionals, especially in the LGBT+ community, where she has become an influential leader and equal rights advocate, as well as a role model who consistently goes above and beyond to help others.'
'Receiving the Pinnacle Award highlights the fact that trans people are capable of doing great things when we're given the opportunity,' said Zapata. 'NAGLREP has provided a platform to do everything I can to help ensure LGBTQ+ people are treated with the dignity and respect we deserve. At the same time, being welcomed and supported by Coldwell Banker D'Ann Harper, Realtors from day one has made all the difference in the world. With the full support of Coldwell Banker and Realogy, I feel not only accepted for who I am, but also embraced.'
Realogy is a founding member of NAGLREP and the organization's only Gold Level residential real estate partner. The company is home to hundreds of LGBT+ employees and affiliated agents, including more than half of the agents ranked by Sales Volume in NAGLREP's Top LGBT+ Agent rankings.
This year Realogy continues to have a strong presence at the national NAGLREP convention through sponsorships and extensive involvement of Realogy executives and affiliated agents as featured speakers and panelists, including:
