Fair Housing Declaration

Fair housing is more than a list of dos and don’ts, rights and penalties, and mandatory continuing education. As stewards of the right to own, use and transfer private property, fair housing protects our livelihood and business as REALTORS® and depends on a free, open market that embraces equal opportunity.

Rugen Realty agrees to:

– Provide equal professional service without regard to the race, color, religion, gender, disability, familial status, age, citizenship status, sexual orientation, occupation, lawful source of income, marital status, partnership status, gender identity or national origin of any prospective client, customer, or of the residents of any community.

– Keep informed about fair housing law and practices, improving our clients’ and customers’ opportunities and our business.
