Fair Housing – two very informative videos to learn what is going on right now in our industry. Be informed!

REALTORS® are charged with upholding fair housing laws as well as offering professional service to all in their search for real property.

Watch this online workshop to help members avoid implicit bias in their daily business interactions. Drawing upon the latest evidence-based research, Perception explains how our brains’ automatic, instant association of stereotypes with particular groups can cause us to treat those who are different from us unfairly, despite our best intentions and often without our conscious awareness. Perception then applies these concepts to the everyday work of REALTORS®, and offers strategies to override bias in order to convey respect, ensure fairness, and improve business relationships.

Another interesting video investigation is the Newsday video – https://projects.newsday.com/long-island/real-estate-investigation-videos/  

Newsday’s paired testers visit real estate agents across Long Island to see if they will be treated the same.
