Who We Are



The Solano REALTIST Association falls under the umbrella of the National Association of Real Estate Broker’s (NAREB). It is important that I give you a brief history of our organization, which will shed some light on our objectives. Our organization was founded in 1947, making it the oldest minority trade association in America. Eleven African American men and one African American woman saw the need to secure the right to equal housing opportunities regardless of race, creed, or color. NAREB members are called REALTIST® and represent all professional disciplines within the real estate industry. Since its inception, NAREB has participated in various meaningful challenges and legislative improvements, to establish fair housing for all people. Democracy in housing is our mission, which should also be the mission of all American citizens.
