President's Challenge

Stand up for fair housing and take your professionalism to the next level.

As NAR continues to strengthen its commitment to fair housing in the real estate industry, 2022 President Leslie Rouda Smith is asking that our appointed and elected leaders in the association lead by example by completing the Fair Housing Challenge and the REALTORS® Commitment to Excellence program.

Fair Housing Challenge

The Fair Housing Challenge includes three training components: Fairhaven: A Fair Housing Simulation, Bias Override: Overcoming Barriers to Fair Housing (either by video or by classroom training launching April 1); and the optional At Home with Diversity® certification.

REALTORS® Commitment to Excellence Challenge

Complete the REALTORS® Commitment to Excellence Challenge by earning your REALTORS® Commitment to Excellence (C2EX) Endorsement. C2EX is a way to take your professionalism and service to the next level.

Fairhaven

Fairhaven is an online, immersive simulation that uses the power of storytelling that lets learners confront housing discrimination in scenarios that feel real. Learners in the fictional town of Fairhaven take the role of an agent, working against the clock to close deals. As learners interact with clients and colleagues, they confront different forms of discrimination and must decide how to react. The scenarios in Fairhaven are inspired by real fair housing cases, and by conversations held with NAR members.

Implicit Bias Video and Classroom Training

The online workshop and new classroom training helps REALTORS® understand how our unconscious brains categorize information, and offers practical tools to override hidden biases. The workshop offers many "de-biasing" practices that improve our relationships with all the people we encounter—being more responsive, growing our networks, and generating more business.

Coming soon: Free implicit bias classroom training at the REALTORS® Legislative Meetings led by former NAR President Ron Phipps and Chair-Elect of Colorado REALTORS®, Natalie Davis, on Sunday, May 1.

At Home With Diversity®

As part of the challenge, you may also elect to participate in the At Home With Diversity® course and earn the certification.

The At Home With Diversity® (AHWD) certification course covers how to work effectively with diverse populations so you can build business success in today’s multicultural real estate market.

Volunteer leaders and committee members can complete the At Home With Diversity® certification course by viewing the recorded session.

C2EX Endorsement

C2EX empowers REALTORS® to evaluate, enhance, and showcase their highest levels of professionalism. It's not a course, class, or designation—it's an Endorsement that REALTORS® can promote when serving clients and other REALTORS®. C2EX is a Code of Ethics training equivalency.

Complete each self-assessment to measure your proficiency in 10 aspects of professionalism (11 for managing brokers), ranging from customer service to use of technology. The platform generates a customized learning path and recommends experiences and resources to enhance your individual skillset. And if you complete the Fair Housing Challenge, you have already completed three major tasks on the C2EX platform!
