Engel & Völkers advocates for LGBT real estate rights

Thursday, March 9, 2017

Real estate firm Engel & Völkers North America has partnered with the National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP), strengthening its commitment to support the organization’s mission to advocate for the housing and real estate rights of the LGBT community. This includes educating real estate professionals on key LGBT insights and trends and joining together real estate professionals throughout the industry. Although NAGLREP is a U.S.-based non-profit, membership and benefits are available to Canadian real estate professionals as well.

“The LGBT community is a powerful force achieving social and legislative milestones because of organizations such as NAGLREP,” said Anthony Hitt, CEO of Engel & Völkers, in a press release. “We’ve been a proud supporter of NAGLREP for quite some time, along with many licensed partners and advisors. This year and beyond, we look forward to strategically working with the NAGLREP network and its leader, Jeff Berger, to help create confidence and solutions to evolve our industry and the communities in which we serve.”

As a designated corporate partner, license partners and advisors within the Engel & Völkers North America network receive special rates for NAGLREP memberships and events to create connections and expand their professional network.

“Engel & Völkers is a valuable addition to our powerful referral network of real estate professionals and will further the benefits our members receive with access to expert real estate service and support at an international level,” said Jeff Berger, founder and president of NAGLREP.

Hitt will join Berger in Washington, D.C. for the NAGLREP LGBT Housing Policy Summit, taking place from March 13 to 14, 2017. The Summit is a gathering of notable LGBT community members and leaders in the real estate and housing industry who are attending to address housing policy impact on the LGBT community.
