For many, the idea of home ownership is an important part of the American Dream. As ambassadors for the real estate industry, we view it as our responsibility to keep this dream alive by upholding fair housing practices at every opportunity. That’s why members of the NRT family of companies, our salespeople and employees commit to the following:
- Providing equal professional service to all, without regard to race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin or other protected status of any prospective client, consumer or resident of any community.
- Keeping informed about fair housing laws and practices, thereby expanding upon our customers' and clients' opportunities.
- Demonstrating through advertising and the media that everyone is welcome and no one is excluded.
- Informing our clients and customers about our rights and responsibilities under the fair housing laws.
- Documenting our efforts to provide equal professional service whenever possible.
- Respecting the diversity and differences within our customer base, and remaining informed on those differences in order to provide Truly Remarkable Service.
- Taking a positive approach to fair housing practices and aspiring to follow the letter and spirit of the law.
- Committing to continue in the development and implementation of fair housing practices in accordance with our leadership role in the real estate profession.
- Refusing to tolerate non-compliance.
The NRT Fair Housing Pledge is adapted from the Personal Commitment developed by the National Association of Realtors, published in Fair Housing: Shared Neighborhoods, Equal Opportunities, 2004 edition.
