As REALTORS® we are sworn to uphold a strict Code of Ethics. We must treat all clients equally, regardless of their race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, sexual orientation or gender identity. The REALTOR® commitment to diversity and equality is perhaps the strongest in real estate, even going a step farther than the federal Fair Housing Act, which does not include sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes against housing discrimination.
REALTORS® play an essential role in ensuring that fair and equal opportunity in housing is protected. This page includes a variety of educational and informational resources to assist you in your ongoing commitment to excellence and equality. Seeking knowledge and meaningful conversation through a variety of perspectives and resources builds the ability to learn from the past and provides solutions for a better future.
