NAREB Region IV President

A Word from your Region IV Vice-President

First, I would like to say welcome and to thank you for visiting NAREB Region IV website. I am personally humbled and grateful to serve as the Region IV Vice President for the 2021-2022 year. The region is comprised of Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia and affectionately known as “The DMV Region”. This region is extraordinary in many aspects: geographically, demographically,  financially and historically. Today, we have the tremendous opportunity to  positively impact thousands of lives through our quest to increase Black Wealth and Black Homeownership. 

Our primary focus is “Democracy in Housing” and by doing so, we advocate for diversity, equity and inclusion in home ownership. It is our goal to narrow the  wealth gap through homeownership. In order to accomplish this, we interface with  our legislators keeping them informed about homeownership disparities. We  actively lobby legislators to create policies to eliminate those disparities. We also interface with our communities across the country to educate them on the  importance of building Black Wealth. We work to provide the tools and information needed to help community members achieve homeownership. It is  through our staunch commitment to financial education that we help the underrepresented achieve the goal of homeownership. We believe it is paramount that we shift the mindset toward owning versus renting. 

We invite all to join us as we change to narrative by closing the wealth gap. Together it is possible. Starting today, it shall happen. 

In the REALTIST Spirit
