  Integral to LATTER & BLUM’s success is its cadre of knowledgeable and committed  agents—like me--Irene Scire Hernandez. My background in research and analysis has provided me with an excellent foundation for understanding how markets work and how to analyze property and market data to inform my judgments and recommendations regarding accurately pricing a home for sale or purchase.  Prior to becoming a real estate professional, I worked for the U. S. Department of Justice as an intelligence professional.   While working for the Department of Justice I was recognized for my outstanding performance in managing a component of the Department of Justice--the National Drug Intelligence Center from which I retired in 2009.  I was also recognized as Woman of the Year for Public Service by the Johnstown, Pennsylvania Chapter of the YWCA in 2008.   In Johnstown, Pennsylvania I served as Co-Chairperson of the American Cancer Society's Pink Ribbon Ball which raised over $15,000 for breast cancer research and support.  I am a graduate of the University of Maryland with a bachelor' degree in Economics Magna Cum Laude.
