As a U.S. citizen who emigrated from Guatemala more than 30 years ago, Obed Hurtarte has a deep reverence for the American ideal of homeownership. In fact, for him, it is a major motivator. “Helping others achieve a piece of their American dream through selling or buying real estate brings personal fulfillment,” he says.
Obed has been a Realtor® since 2008, but his years of professional experience and expertise are more than double that. Having sold insurance and industrial paint, and worked in the petrochemical industry, Obed has been a sales representative for more than 20 years.
But real estate was always on his mind. “I just like to look at properties and find ways to make them more valuable in the market,” he says. “I can see myself helping sellers as well as first-time buyers.”
Obed also strives to help his community, volunteering as an assistant coach for his daughter’s soccer team and remaining active in his local church. He and his wife have two wonderful kids, Daniela and Mateo. In his spare time, Obed likes to read and exercise regularly.
