The Consolidated Board of Realtists (CBR), the local chapter of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB), the country’s oldest, minority real estate trade association is planning a week-long series of events, April11-17, 2021 in observance of the trade association’s dedication to increasing Black wealth through homeownership and this year, commemorating the landmark passage of the Fair Housing Act enacted 53 years ago. Realtist Week activities in Los Angeles are grounded in CBR’s intent to increase the economic futures of Black Americans, by Building Black Wealth through Homeownership.

“Realtist Week events and activities raise awareness that Black homeownership not only strengthens the economic fabric of our city, but also increases the desirability of Los Angeles‘ many neighborhoods,” said President Stanley Jackson.

It is appropriate that CBR’s Realtist Week takes place during National Fair Housing Month which commemorates the passage of the Fair Housing Act of1968; federal legislation making it illegal to discriminate in housing based upon race, color, sex, national origin, religion, familial status, or disability. CBR has scheduled a series of activities to heighten the community’s and policymakers’ awareness about the importance of affordable homeownership as the best and most effective wealth building tool.

Formed in 1947, NAREB’s founding motto of Democracy in Housing continues to serve as its purpose and focus. NAREB’s 2 Million New Black Homeowners in 5 Years(2Mn5) program was initiated to reverse the wealth drain among Black Americans. While the country continues to experience economic recovery, that same recovery has bypassed most Black Americans. NAREB’s approach to increasing Black Wealth incorporates financial education, homeownership preparation and counseling, outreach to the faith-based community along with expanding Black consumers' knowledge base about the importance of advocating for public policies that support and increase affordable and sustainable homeownership. CBR joins NAREB chapters nationwide participating in Realtist Week.
