New Simulation Training Supports Agents in Fair Housing Efforts The National Association of REALTORS® announces the launch of its new fair housing training platform, Fairhaven. Available to all 1.4 million NAR members, the interactive online simulation helps learners identify, prevent, and address discriminatory practices in real estate. In the fictional town of Fairhaven, agents work against the clock to sell homes while confronting realistic scenarios where discrimination can occur. In each interaction with clients and colleagues, learners make choices and receive feedback they can apply to daily business interactions. The training also puts the learner in the shoes of a client experiencing discrimination and includes powerful testimonials demonstrating the impact of housing discrimination in real people's lives. Make sure you're adhering to fair housing principles by exploring the town of Fairhaven to help identify and combat discrimination in home buying.
