For decades, 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 East Metro Board of Realtors strongly support the Fair Housing Act, legislation first passed in 1968 and which and now prohibits discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status and national origin.

This year, Realtors from Georgia will join Realtors across the country to embark on a yearlong commemoration of the 50th anniversary of the Fair Housing Act to raise awareness for fair housing issues.

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.

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. During the yearlong commemoration, NAR will further examine community fair housing issues and advocate for changes to the Fair Housing Act to prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
