Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Our commitment

PRO/ CPRO strives to be a leader in supporting and encouraging diversity, equity, and inclusion in real estate. We fully embrace perspectives from all walks of life, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, religion, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, national origin, socioeconomic status, political affiliation, or any other qualities by which we may define ourselves.

We commit to bringing out the best in ourselves, uncovering our hidden talents, and celebrating differences in our day-to-day interactions. These beliefs are essential as we serve our members who help fulfill the dream of home and property ownership in America. In this effort, the DEI Committee was established in 2021 to monitor and develop this mission.

The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) committee has been charged with assisting our members about DEI issues and with both public and private sectors to build community relations. Committee members are from a broad array of our REALTOR® and Affiliate membership, including brokers, agents, appraisers, bankers, mortgage and title professionals.

Fair Housing Skits

Skits about fair housing featuring REALTOR® members, Affiliate members, and staff at PRO/CPRO, in conjunction with our new DEI Committee. We have a little fun communicating these topics, but the issues themselves are very serious in nature. It’s vital that everyone who works within the real estate industry is aware of the laws and best practices relevant to fair housing, implicit bias, and discrimination, as it’s possible that lines can be crossed without ill intent by any party.  If you have any questions about the topics covered, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
