Meet Miguel Castro
Organization: Castro Real Estate Services, LLC
Hometown: Baton Rouge, LA
When and why did you get involved with BRAC?
I had been thinking about getting involved with BRAC for a while but never really got around to do it. Then I met Monica Hughes, BRAC’s director of investor relations, at a Toastmasters group and she talked me into it. And I am glad she did.
Tell us more about how you are involved in Baton Rouge (job or organizations).
As a realtor I have the honor to serve my fellow Baton Rougeans in either finding a place they will call home or finding an investable asset that will better their economic future. In either case, a happier citizen is a better citizen.
Why do you stay involved with BRAC?
I think BRAC does an incredible job in promoting the best interest of Baton Rouge and I am having a lot of fun with all the great folks I’ve met.
What would you tell someone considering becoming a BRAC investor?
It takes all of us to create a better city for our future generations and the more people participate, the better.
What do you see for the future of Baton Rouge? How will we get there?
A more robust economy that will help us keep our kids and grandkids here in BR. We need our leadership to promote more commerce and better infrastructure to attract more businesses and more industries.
What’s one of the most exciting things you see happening in the Baton Rouge Area today?
Collaborative efforts to make our city better. I know sometimes it may not look like it, but when you participate with organizations like BRAC, you begin to see it.
BRAC’s Ambassador Program is designed to allow company representatives to actively build relationships with BRAC investors and business leaders while serving as advocates of BRAC’s work.
Each month, BRAC highlights one of these ambassadors in the Ambassador Spotlight. To learn more about the Ambassador Program, visit the program page here.
