DAAR Joins LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance

In order to promote and foster diversity, equity and inclusion in the real estate community, the Dulles Area Association of Realtors (DAAR) has partnered with the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance, the organization announced Thursday.

The LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance, also known as just the Alliance, is a 501(c)(6) non-profit dedicated to empowering the LGBTQ+ community on the path to homeownership while advocating on behalf of the community on housing issues. Founded in June 2020, the Alliance is an all-inclusive organization that works to improve the professional lives of its members through a public-facing Alliance Referral Community.

DAAR’s 2022 President Rich Blessing officially signed the memorandum of understanding with the Alliance late last month.

“DAAR is excited to partner with the LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance to help advance fair and equal access to housing for members of the LGBTQ+ community,” said DAAR CEO Amanda Brewer. “This partnership directly reflects the commitment DAAR has made to diversity, equity, and inclusion, and the priority we have placed on DEI efforts throughout our 2022 – 2024 Strategic Plan.”

The LGBTQ+ Real Estate Alliance was launched in 2020 by leading members of the real estate industry. The organization began accepting members in October 2020 and now has more than 2,600 members and 50 chapters in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Its position as an organization was enhanced after officially partnering with the National Association of Realtors in May 2021.

The Alliance is dedicated to enhancing the professional lives of its members while providing consumers with the proper resources to assist in buying, selling, and enjoying their homes.
