Our Mission

In 1947,  twelve spirited individuals made a decision to stand united against unfair housing practices; forming the National Association of Real Estate Brokers.  Members and supporters of NAREB & REALTISTS@ continue the mission for fair housing opportunities to millions of homeowners every year.

The Houston Black Real Estate Association (HBREA) is the local chapter of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB). NAREB, founded in 1947, is the oldest and largest minority trade association in America.  HBREA was founded on the principle that all citizens have the right to equal housing opportunities regardless of race, creed or color.
