The Filipino American Real Estate Professional Association is the largest Filipino-American real estate organization in the United States. We are a non-profit 501c(6) organization founded in 2002 and we promote professional networking, educational workshops, and community outreach in the Silicon Valley. In addition, our global trade mission presents opportunities to invest in the Philippines.
FAREPA-SV provides advocacy and resources to its members and affiliates. Our Executive Officers and Board of Directors have established projects such as housing fairs, first-time homebuyer program, Accessory Dwelling Units (ADU) education, partnership outreach and events. We participated in the Multicultural Real Estate Summit Conference with the National and California Association of REALTORS® to address real estate policy issues to better serve our members.
Our fundraising led to further involvement in the Gawad Kalinga (“to give care”) Development Foundation, in which ‘FAREPA Village’ was established in the Philippines. Our local fundraising event, FAREPA Fashion Show Charity Event, helped LifeMoves formerly known as Inn Vision, a non-profit provider for abused women, children, and family homelessness in Silicon Valley. During these unprecedented times, we have assisted to raise funds for Family Supportive Housing Shelter, an organization to end family homelessness in the community.
