Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as Realtors® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity.
Realtors® recognize the significance of the Fair Housing Act and reconfirm their commitment to upholding fair housing law as well as their commitment to offering equal professional service to all in their search for real property.
As a member, OCHAR encourages you to learn more about Fair Housing and to do everything possible to help protect housing rights in our communities and beyond.
See how Fairhaven, NAR’s new fair housing training simulation for REALTORS®, allows members to test their compliance with fair housing principles by using the power of storytelling to identify, prevent, and address discriminatory practices in real estate.
Developed by mind-science experts drawing upon the latest evidence-based research to help REALTORS® avoid implicit bias, this online workshop offers strategies to override automatic, unconscious bias and convey respect, ensure fairness and improve business relationships.
