The fair and equal opportunity for everyone to own land and real estate is and was a major motivation for the many immigrants who founded the United States of America.
Realtors® take responsibility for getting to know all cultural and social groups in the community, and proactively reach out to all people for the purpose of helping them achieve the goal of homeownership. Our promise and ethics as Realtors® is taken seriously and even goes beyond the minimum requirements of the Fair Housing Act.
