Message From Our President
As the 2nd president of the Western Washington Realtist, it is my distinct pleasure to step into the role our previous president, Kennedy Akinlosotu, held for over 10 years as the pioneer of this chapter. His tireless efforts have laid the groundwork for me to continue the vision of expanding education and homeownership opportunities to the Black community in Washington.
As the local chapter of the oldest non-white trade organization in the United States, the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) Realtist have been at the forefront of championing “Democracy in Housing” for a community that has historically been left out of the dream of homeownership.
I am honored to carry this legacy forward; I have an amazing team and great industry partners primed to do the work we have set in front of us to increase black homeownership and housing education in the Pacific Northwest and across the country.
Nicole Bascomb - Green President, Western Washington Realtist
Young Realtist Division President
Anzhane Slaughter is a natural born advocate for the African American community. At 26 years old, Anzhane is the youngest Board Member at African American Leadership Foundation. She first put her community at the epicenter of her work in 2012 with her fight for education reform within Seattle Public Schools. Her devotion and leadership towards social justice and equity carried throughout her educational career as she obtained a degree in law from the University of Washington.
Throughout her research, Anzhane found that in order for the African American community to achieve true liberation one must be free financially. She quickly applied this learning to her life and in 2018 passed the Real Estate Exam in Washington state to help bring financial freedom, stability and generational wealth to her community. Since then, Anzhane has helped many black families reach homeownership, held prominent positions within the social justice community, secured government contracts for Minority Owned Businesses, managed political campaigns for State Legislatures and continuously uplifting other young leaders through financial and civic literacy.
