Nestor Chavez
Weichert, Realtors | Welch & Company |  Mi Gente Sales Team

Nestor Chavez, leads a fulfilling life as a real estate agent, electrician, father, husband, and advocate for our Hispanic community. Born and raised in a small town, I've always had a strong work ethic instilled in me by my hardworking parents. From a young age, I developed a fascination for homes and how they functioned, which eventually led me to pursue a dual career as an electrician and real estate agent.

My passion for helping others and serving our Hispanic community pushed me to explore a career in real estate. I realized that by assisting families in finding their dream homes, I could make a lasting impact on their lives and provide them with a solid foundation. Buying or selling a property is a significant decision, and I am honored to be the person guiding my clients through this process.

Yvette Chavez
Weichert, Realtors | Welch & Company |  Mi Gente Sales Team

Yvette Chavez, is a dedicated real estate agent with a passion for helping others and serving our Hispanic community. But my journey to becoming a real estate agent wasn't a direct path; it was shaped by my previous career in healthcare.

Becoming a real estate agent wasn't easy. It required dedication, perseverance, and a willingness to continuously learn and adapt. I obtained my license, joined a reputable agency, and immersed myself in the world of real estate. I attended seminars, stayed up-to-date with market trends, and built a strong network of professionals to collaborate with.

As a mother and a wife, I understand the importance of finding a place that truly feels like home—a place where families can grow, make memories, and thrive. This understanding, coupled with my desire to serve our Hispanic community, has become the driving force behind my work.

I am fluent in both English and Spanish, which allows me to effectively communicate and advocate for my clients. I go the extra mile to understand their unique needs, guiding them through every step of the real estate process. Whether it's finding the perfect home or securing a successful sale, I am dedicated to ensuring my clients' satisfaction.
