For decades, Realtors® – members of the National Association of Realtors® – have supported a free, open market that embraces fairness and equal opportunity for all buyers and sellers. Members of the Realtor® Association of Southwestern Illinois (RASI) strongly support the Fair Housing Act, legislation first passed in 1968 and now prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status and national origin.
“Realtors® continue to recognize the significance of this important act and reconfirm our commitment to upholding fair housing law, as well as our commitment to offering equal professional service to all in their search for a home or property. Realtors® work hard to build strong communities and neighborhoods where all people can live and prosper,” said Judy Ross, President of RASI.
Over the years, NAR has developed educational information on diversity and fair housing laws, programs and resources that have helped educate Realtors®across the country on the importance of inclusive housing practices and the promotion of diverse homeownership.
“Fair housing protects the American Dream of homeownership for all citizens, and Realtors® love supporting the development of healthy and diverse communities,” Ross said.
