The Las Vegas Chapter of the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance has selected Scott Emerson, a real estate sales executive at Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Nevada Properties, as its president.
During Emerson’s two-year tenure as president, he plans to develop the organization’s reputation as a leader in housing equality for the LGBTQ+ community, innovate strategies for members to expand their businesses through community service and provide pathways for homeownership and education for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Founded in 2020, the alliance is an advocate for fair housing and the promotion of homeownership for its members within the Las Vegas Valley. It offers industry professionals the opportunity to elevate professionalism through education and networking, while celebrating the diversification and inclusion within membership and its allied partners.
