Let us start by saying racism has no place in the world or in real estate, and we at ULR do not condone or support any racist behavior.
Within our family of realtors we have agents and employees of all backgrounds, cultures, and beliefs. Our diversity is what makes our team so special.
We have been saddened to read some of the comments made on social media during the past week since the horrific death of Houstonian George Floyd. They do not reflect the values of our company or our members.
We stand with the Black community and everyone who is participating in peaceful protests against systemic racism. Each of us needs to do our part.
We as an industry of realtors need to have the difficult and uncomfortable discussions about racism and acknowledge that it is still an issue in our industry. In an effort to learn how we can do more, we are encouraging our team to join the HAR “Race in Real Estate” Member Focus Monday panel discussion with leaders from NAHREP, HBREA and AAREA.
ULR has supported non-discrimination efforts with the HAR Code of Ethics training, Fair Housing seminars, and will continue to do more.
For each of you who is sad, angry, confused, etc., we hear you and stand with you.
