If recent events have taught us anything, it’s this: we have more work to do. Racism is real, tragically so. Discrimination, in all its forms, still casts a long shadow in this country, and too many are being denied the opportunities that all Americans deserve. Our commitment to the diverse communities we serve starts with a Code of Ethics. Our code sets a higher standard for fairness in housing than any federal law, it’s backed by a culture of member accountability, and it extends to our work on Capitol Hill, where we continue to advocate for meaningful change. At the Dulles Area Association of REALTORS®, and the National Area Association of REALTORS®, we believe that fairness is worth fighting for, and we won’t stop until the fight is won. Because that’s who we are. If you experience or witness discrimination in real estate, we urge you to report it.
DAAR is committed to providing equal, professional service without regard to the race, color, religion, gender (sex), disability (handicap), familial status, national origin, sexual orientation, or gender identity of any prospective member, customer, or of the residents of any community. DAAR works to create more robust fair housing and diversity courses to educate members on the benefits of fair housing and to remove unconscious-biases. DAAR provides fair housing collateral to all members as informational tools for their peers and clients. DAAR stands strong in the opposition of discrimination and supports equal opportunity housing. We believe that fairness is worth fighting for, and we won’t stop until the fight is won. Because that’s who we are.
