Who We Are
Our national goal is to bring together the nation’s minority professionals in the real estate industry to promote the meaningful exchange of ideas about our business and how best to serve our clientele. We strive to create an environment where creativity flourishes in both the workplace and the marketplace.
To service our target market, we ensure that training and educational opportunities are available to our entire membership across the many disciplines we represent, providing certifications and special designations in many areas of interest. Our ability to professionally service our client base is the foundation by which we operate.
NAREB was founded in 1947, making it the oldest minority trade association in America. It was formed out of a need to secure the right to equal housing opportunities regardless of race, creed, or color. Since its inception, we have participated in various meaningful challenges and legislative improvements to establish fair housing for all.
A board of directors governs NAREB and an executive committee comprised of members and leaders in the industry from across America. Each local chapter continuously encourages new members to join and actively become community real estate leaders.
