Realtors® continue focus on fair housing, commemorate 50th anniversary of act
           "The National Association of Realtors® continues its yearlong commemoration of the Fair Housing Act
             since its passage in 1968. Scottsdale Area Association of Realtors® CEO Rebecca Grossman
             expresses how “the 50th Anniversary of the Fair Housing Act gives us an opportunity to reflect on how
             REALTORS® have championed change in the industry and educated sellers and landlords
             on how fair housing is not only good for achieving their objectives, but also the right thing
             to do. We need to continue to look at what equal treatment barriers remain for homebuyers
             and work with our communities to remove them.”

In case you missed it, read the press release published early last week from NAR and President Elizabeth Mendenhall.
