George Floyd’s unjust death – may it serve to unite our communities
“Today is a time of tremendous pain and unfortunate disunity in our country, due to the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. During this time, we must acknowledge past injustice and grieve this terrible loss, so that we may heal. Most importantly, we must work together for profound change in our country.

We stand united with our colleagues across the nation to work for change and we share the sentiments expressed by our NAR President, Vince Malta, on behalf of all REALTORS®.”
