“When the conversation involves Black Homeownership Western Washington Realtist will be at the table”

Nicole Bascomb, President, WWR

ABOUT WWR

WWR MISSION

“Reimagining the Dream of Homeownership through Advocacy, Activism and Action”

Our national goal is to bring together the nation’s minority professionals in the real estate industry 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.

Why Realtist?

A NAREB member is called a REALTIST. In 1947, the bylaws of many local Realtor organizations excluded Black members and blocked Black real estate agents from using the Multiple Listing Service, a database of homes for sale, in addition to other professional resources. In 1964 the first Black Realtor was admitted to NAR. However, while many can be both Realtors and Realtist, Realtist is used out of respect to history and choice

Founded in 1947

NAREB was founded in 1947, making it the oldest minority Real Estate trade Association in America. It was formed out of a need to secure the right to Equal Housing Opportunities regardless of race, creed, or color. Since its inception, NAREB has participated in various meaningful challenges and legislative improvements, to establish Fair Housing for all..

Member Body

Although comprised principally of African-American and other minority real estate professionals, the REALTIST® organization notwithstanding is an integrated entity open to qualified practitioners of all races who are interested in achieving the ideas of the REALTIST® theme, Democracy in Housing.

The REALTIST® organization has made substantial contributions to the cause of democracy by working to provide housing for all without limitations or restrictions.

MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT

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.
