COMMITMENT TO EQUAL HOUSING

It is no secret that real estate is one of the most powerful tools to build wealth, and likewise one of the most potent sources for inequality. The real estate industry touches almost every piece of systematic discrimination in every community. There are direct and obvious examples in lending and fair housing, as well as indirect examples such as education and healthcare. Bottom line: there is a lot of work to do in the fight for equality in real estate, and we are committed to doing our part whenever and wherever we can.

The New Jersey Law Against Descrimination (LAD) makes it unlawful to refuse to show or sell a property based on a person’s race, creed, color, national origin, nationality, ancestry, marital status, domestic partnership or civil union status, familial status, affectional or sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, sex, or mential and physical disability, including AIDS or HIV-related illness. It is also illegal to place any advertisement or make any statements or utterances that express, directly or indirectly, any limitations to offer housing based on any of those characteristics.

Our team will terminate or refuse services to any clients that indicate an intent to discriminate based on any of the protected classes. 

Any violations should be reported to the nearest office of the NJ Division on Civil Rights at 866-405-3050 (Toll-Free) or online at www.NJCivilRights.gov.
