We’re proud members of NAGLREP, The National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals. One of the nation’s largest LGBT+ trade organizations, NAGLREP has grown to 2,800 members—us included—and 44 local chapters around the nation.
NAGLREP works with local, state, and federal leadership, along with local and state Realtor associations, and the National Association of Realtors to eradicate housing discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.
The LGBT community is at interesting crossroads where Corporate America and the American people are seemingly ready to fully embrace us. And yet, discrimination is still a major reason why LGBT homeownership rates are at 49% compared to the national average of 65%. NAGLREP fights against that discrimination and supports LGBT homebuyers, sellers, renters, and Realtors.

NAGLREP’s work includes an outpouring of support for the Equality Act, which was supported by NAGLREP and passed in the U.S. House of Representatives in May 2019. This bill will add sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes and ban discrimination against the LGBT community in many areas, including housing, credit, employment, education, public spaces and services, federally funded programs, and jury service. Yet, as the bill sits stagnant in the U.S. Senate, discrimination remains a major headwind for the LGBT community in search of the American Dream of Homeownership.
