Dear SAR REALTOR®and Affiliate Members,
For those of you who were unable to attend our Main Membership meeting on Tuesday, May 3rd, you are in luck because SAR recorded the presentation and it is available for you to view online here. We had an absolutely phenomenal speaker, Shanta Patton-Golar who is a REALTOR and Realtist from the Greater Las Vegas area.
I think most of our members are highly aware of Fair Housing, and you are probably familiar with the concepts of racially restrictive covenants, redlining, and the manner in which people of color were frequently denied the right to purchase a home until a series of federal and state fair housing laws passed in the late 1960’s and early 1970’s — but did you know that decades ago, real estate agents of color were also denied the right to join our association? Check out the recording to hear Shanta describe fair housing and racism from the agent-practitioner’s point of view. As she states in the first few minutes of her presentation — this is not a “stuffy fair housing class” — she keeps it very real and relatable. I highly encourage you to watch it.
