The Hollywood Reporter recently recognized L.A.’s top real estate agents at their inaugural Power Broker Awards in West Hollywood, with Santiago Arana honored with the Philanthropic Impact award for his involvement with organizations such as Union Rescue Mission, Synergy International School and Giveback Homes.

At the event, Santiago took the stage to say a few words: “There’s no more rewarding thing than helping organizations or people that want to make the world a better place,” he said.

Among Santiago’s many causes is Union Rescue Mission, which works to help homeless people in L.A. with emergency services, clinics, recovery programs and education. He also works with Giveback Homes to build homes in communities all over the country and Synergy International School, which is an organization that strives to provide children across South America with the tools they need to develop a successful future.

Each year, The Hollywood Reporter recognizes 30 agents in Los Angeles County among thousands, taking into account their roster of celebrity and entertainment industry clientele, social media presence, philanthropic endeavors, and more. This year, James Harris, David Parnes, Santiago Arana, and Josh Myler made the cut, thanks in large part to their performant sales, marquee listings and award-worthy service. Cooper Mount was also named a Rising Star for his impressive slate of listings around his native Malibu and the Westside.
