Addressing Fair Housing during Black History Month

Join the Association of REALTORS® in celebrating Black History Month through a variety of educational opportunities through the month of February and related resources that address Fair Housing.

HomeSight, Homeownership, Community Development Webinar

The Washington REALTORS® DEI Committee hosted HomeSight. HomeSight believes a community only thrives when given the opportunities and resources needed to create homeowners, build strong small businesses and root community anchors. That is why HomeSight strives to provide quality, personalized homeownership opportunities for communities around the state and takes an integrated approach to providing technical assistance and resources to communities with low access to opportunity in SE Seattle. That way, communities can build shared prosperity in their unique ways and on their own terms.
