It is a great honor to be on the NAGLREP policy committee. I am glad to say the National Association of Realtors joined in support of the H.R. 5 Equality Act.
John Smaby, NAR President shared:
“NAR commends Representative Cicilline and his colleagues in the House for drafting legislation to extend equal housing opportunities in America. Realtors® have worked for a decade now to ensure the American Dream of homeownership is not unfairly denied to those in LGBT community, as we amended our Code of Ethics in 2009 to extend equal housing protections to those facing discrimination for sexual orientation and gender identity. Realtors® thank our colleagues in the industry for working toward this same goal, and we look forward to continuing to pursue equal housing opportunities for everyone in America."
