Established in 2007, The National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP) is a mission-driven 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is part business and part advocacy.
On a business level, the 1,400+ members of NAGLREP share an LGBT and allied REALTOR referral network, in addition to providing our services to over 75,000 LGBT and non-LGBT home buyers and sellers visiting our website each month. Our referral network also includes mortgage professionals, title agents, insurance agents, commercial agents, trainers, educators, etc.
The advocacy mission of NAGLREP is to advocate on behalf of the rights of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) community as it relates to housing and discrimination laws. Specifically, this will require NAGLREP to initiate action and encourage existing efforts amongst the civil rights community, local and state Realtor Associations, and the National Association of Realtors to support fair housing for the LGBT community. NAGLREP is a stakeholder at HUD.
Equally important to this mission is to work with legislators from near and far at the local, state and federal level to enact legislation that would eliminate all discrimination laws and provide fair and equal rights to the LGBT community.
LGBTQ Conferences bringing together thousands of openly LGBTQ leaders in government, health, advocacy, business and community organizations.
