On Oct. 7, influential members of our Hispanic community were invited to celebrate at a local restaurant for an award ceremony with District 4 Commissioner Maribel Gomez Cordero. The event titled “Tus Raíces Hispanic Heritage Celebration” was held to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, which takes place from Sept. 15 through Oct. 15. This was the second one hosted by Commissioner Cordero, and the event celebrated seven influencers within the area, including Nonahood Latino’s very own Limarys “Liz” Hernandez!
The award Hernandez received was for Best Media Communicator and Leader in Lake Nona as one of the best influencers in the Hispanic community. When she received the invitation from Commissioner Cordero, she was over the moon!
“As an entrepreneur and business owner of The Liz Team Real Estate, it was an honor to be able to help the small business owners in [the] Nonahood by sharing the platform of Nonahood Latino! It’s an honor to help the community succeed!”
The invitation from Commissioner Cordero stated, “It is my goal to continually seek out the best in our culture who make strides for excellence as you have made as a leader in media.”
Hernandez is an award-winning realtor in the Central Florida area and an Eagle Creek resident. She is devoted to not only assisting sellers in getting the best price and finding dream homes for buyers but has also set her heart on helping her community by being an active member of Nonahood Latino, the Latino news/media brand under nona.media, parent company of Nonahood News. She has helped host El Carnaval in Lake Nona and is the weekly host for “Conoce a tu Vecino,” a Nonahood Latino livestream interview where she highlights local Hispanic businesses. Being a business owner herself, she understood the struggles many faced during the pandemic, and, as a result, she wanted to help the Latino community by providing free interviews in Lake Nona.
In addition to all of her roles in the community, Hernandez also provides monthly real estate market updates in Nonahood News and is an active member of the Lake Nona Regional Chamber of Commerce. A huge congratulations to Limarys Hernandez for not only representing Nonahood Latino and the Latino community but also the Lake Nona area!
