Three Steps to Fair Housing ~ Manchester ~ 2 hrs CE
Oct 18 @ 8:30 pm – 10:45 pm

As the responsible party for your real estate firm, we wanted you to know that fair housing testers are actively searching REALTOR.com for listing remarks that violate fair housing laws, and are actively filing discrimination LAWSUITS against both the listing agents and broker‐owners for violations.

 

To address the seriousness of this emerging liability issue, we will explore three simple steps that you should take to protect your company, your agents and the public:

 

 Step One: Learn About the Issues

 Step Two: Check and Fix Your Listings

 Step Three: Develop and Implement Training
