Mr. Ramos brings a wealth of experience to his role, having served in every stage of the sales and customer support process. Throughout his career, Mr. Ramos has often been recognized as a leader, receiving numerous awards for his sales accomplishments. He served on the board of directors for the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) New Jersey chapter, and was the president and founder of the National Association of Hispanic Real Estate Professionals (NAHREP) Tri-State Chapter.

“Radian is proud to have a veteran like Nelson join our team,” said Brien McMahon, Radian’s chief franchise officer. “He has had a long and successful sales career, and in particular, clearly understands the needs of the Hispanic community. His vast experience and customer centric attitude will be a valuable asset to Radian as we broaden our reach within the fastest growing demographic group in America.”

In 2013, Radian signed a two-year strategic partnership with NAHREP. Under the agreement, Radian is developing a nationwide training program that educates NAHREP member agents and lenders about private mortgage insurance through on-demand training, face-to-face sessions, video and interactive webinars so they can, in turn, better inform Hispanic consumers.

“According to the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies, Latinos are expected to constitute 40 percent of the 17 million new households formed from 2010 to 2025,” said Mr. Ramos, account manager. “My role is to ensure that the Latino community has the information, tools and resources to realize the dream of homeownership.”
