Established in 2007, The
National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) is
a mission driven 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is part business and
The advocacy mission of
NAGLREP is to advocate on behalf of the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual,
and Transgender (LGBT) community as it relates to housing and discrimination
laws. Specifically, this will require NAGLREP to initiate action and encourage
existing efforts amongst the civil rights community, local and state Realtor
Associations, and the National Association of Realtors to support fair housing
for the LGBT community. NAGLREP is a stakeholder at HUD.
Equally important to this
mission is to work with legislators from near and far at the local, state and
federal level to enact legislation that would eliminate all discrimination laws
and provide fair and equal rights to the LGBT community.
NAGLREP provides services to
over 75,000 LGBT and non-LGBT homebuyers and sellers visiting the website each
month. The referral network also includes mortgage professionals, title agents,
insurance agents, commercial agents, trainers, educators, etc.
Along with the 1,500+ members
of NAGLREP, I share the same values and important mission statement to make a
difference in our LBGT community.
