Tasha Penson has spent over 10 years working to help families, particularly in communities of color, invest in the nation’s leading wealth asset—home ownership. Her commitment to helping communities understand the value of home investment has led her to develop training seminars, forums and initiatives that not only educate communities on the value of home ownership, but has also provided them valuable tools necessary to maneuver the often discouraging road to home ownership. Tasha has led numerous efforts to expand home ownership for low and middle income families. Her professional motto is Transforming Lives, One Home at A Time.
Tasha began her career in hotel and restaurant management in 1994 working for national restaurant and hotel chains in Fort Worth, Texas. She later transitioned to general management for Enterprise Rental Car Company where she quickly advanced up the management ladder. She transitioned in 2005 into real estate after realizing how her business and management background would serve as a valuable resource for communities of color and their need to develop capital and measured wealth assets. Since that time she has helped numerous home buyers and sellers realize their dreams in a real estate transaction with integrity, courtesy, honesty and excellent customer service.
