The National Association of Realtors® has released a new interactive training platform designed to help combat discrimination in America’s real estate market – made available at no cost to real estate professionals throughout the country. Fairhaven is an immersive simulation where agents work against the clock to close four deals, confronting various scenarios where discrimination enters into the transaction.
In the fictional town of Fairhaven, agents must choose how to respond to various scenarios involving discrimination in real estate. They advance through the simulation based on their answers and receive feedback on their performance. In an innovative approach, the course also places agents in the role of a client experiencing discrimination. The client point-of-view scenarios are paired with powerful testimonials illustrating the impact of housing discrimination in real people’s lives. The training takes about an hour to complete.
