Robert Carrillo is the Founder and President of Carrillo Group CANY (CGX). With twenty five years of experience across all segments of real estate, Robert is well positioned to understand how residential real estate and commercial real estate impact community development. "One cannot and will not exist without the other. It is on real estate professionals, developers, elected officials, and community residents to be informed and come to the table with a win-for-all mentality. However, we understand that 'power concedes nothing without demand...it never has and it never will.' (Frederick Douglas), so we strive to inform and empower our communities."
Robert is a former educator, having served as a middle school & high school Special Education teacher in NYC and San Bernardino. He's been serving 10+ years as Treasurer and Finance Chair on the board of directors of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Health Center. He's co-founded two youth development programs, in 2010 and 2013, that continue to impact young lives today.
Yvette Romero is an Associate at Carrillo Group CANY. She transitioned to real estate from nursing - in the medical field over twenty years - and is still about helping people. Her impact on the community is broader through real estate than in the nursing unit. Homeownership improves health outcomes. Lack of secure shelter is a public health crisis. "The reason I joined Carrillo Group CANY is because I understand how real estate impacts health & community. The business of real estate goes beyond buying & selling houses. Once you see the connection between commercial real estate and community development, it is hard to ignore the gaps in opportunity and equity."
