April is Fair Housing Month
NRT is proud to join the nation and our industry in celebrating April as National
Fair Housing Month. Fair Housing means equal and professional real estate service
to everyone. Fair Housing is good for our families, good for our communities, good
for the real estate industry and good for business.
We have developed and implemented enhanced Fair Housing training programs for thousands
of sales associates across the country.
Together, we’re working toward Fair Housing for all.
