The National Association of Real Estate Brokers, Inc. (NAREB) is the oldest minority trade association in America. We were founded in 1947 on the principle that all citizens have the right to equal housing opportunities, regardless of race, creed or color. NAREB's mission is to enhance the Economic Improvement of its members and the minority community it serves. NAREB is a national trade association dedicated to bringing together the nation's minority professionals in the real estate industry and to promote the meaningful exchange of ideas about our business and how best to serve our clientele. We strive to create an environment where creativity flourishes in both the workplace and the marketplace.
PMBR and NAREB operates under a constitution and by-laws dedicated to preserving the rights of all Americans. Our mission is to serve the unserved, and develop creative and effective methods of doing so.
Over the years, our members have been at the forefront of the struggle to gain equal housing for all. We have become the voice and conscience of the proponents of equal housing.
Members of the organization are referred to as 'Realtists'. Although comprised principally of African Americans and other minority real estate professionals, the Realtist organization is an integrated entity open to all qualified practitioners who are committed to achieving the ideals of the Realtist theme - "Democracy in Housing".
