The Foundation offers “Mastering Fair Housing in the Marketplace,” a new seminar on non-discriminatory practices for all real estate service providers.
The seminar, originally funded by a grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development, has been held across the state in collaboration with the Maryland Commission on Human Relations and the Maryland Association of REALTORSÆ. The half-day session is open to all real estate professionals, including lenders, appraisers, REALTORS®, property managers, insurers and title companies.
This seminar offers a practical approach by providing effective tools to deal with discriminatory practices in the real estate industry while promoting fair housing practices and diversity. Glendora Hughes, General Counsel of the Maryland Commission on Human Relations, is the instructor.
