“I am beyond grateful to be recognized as the “Entrepreneur of the Year” by LATINA Style,” says Abbott. “My career has been a rewarding journey with both challenges and victories, and it’s truly humbling to be recognized for this achievement.”

Hilda Abbott is a steadfast leader with a passion to lift others up, both in and out of the office. As a businesswoman, Abbott identified early-on in her real estate career that there was a serious need for more diverse representation in the property management and real estate sector and worked tirelessly to fully address that need. Abbott’s success as the Chief Operations Officer at WePartner is largely founded on her hard work and her dedication to having a company that was as representative as the diverse communities it serves. Through her years of experience before and after the establishment of WePartner, Abbott honed her skills in new home sales, executive-level management, business operations, and commercial and residential real estate, and she has used every opportunity to share her skills with others to serve as a mentor and help them grow professionally. Abbott works with organizations such as True Love for Special Needs Families, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, and Caminar Latino.
