April is Fair Housing Month

Check out this short video and the Realtor® Fair Housing Declaration. Fair Housing is very important to real estate. Whether you are buying or selling, I am passionate about making sure that everyone is treated fairly.

Please be sure to let me know if you have questions!

 

REALTOR® Fair Housing Declaration: As a member of the REALTOR® Associations, I agree to:

 

  • Provide equal professional service without regard to the race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin or sexual orientation of any prospective client, customer, or of the residents of any community.
  • Keep informed about fair housing law and practices, improving our clients’ and customers’ opportunities and our business.
  • Develop advertising that indicates that everyone is welcome and no one is excluded;, expanding our client’s and customer’s opportunities to see, buy, or lease property.
  • Inform our clients and customers about their rights and responsibilities under the fair housing laws by providing brochures and other information.
  • Document our efforts to provide professional service, which will assist us in becoming a more responsive and successful REALTOR®.
  • Refuse to tolerate non-compliance.
  • Learn about those who are different from us, and celebrate those differences.
  • Take a positive approach to fair housing practices and aspire to follow the spirit as well as the letter of the law.
  • Develop and implement fair housing practices for our firm to carry out the spirit of this declaration.
