Realogy Supports First LGBT-Centric Real Estate Conference

JUPITER, Fla., Sept. 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The National Association of Gay and Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP), which will host its inaugural National LGBT Real Estate Conference in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on October 14-16, today announced that residential real estate franchising and brokerage services leader Realogy Holdings Corp. (NYSE: RLGY) and its Coldwell Banker Real Estate, Century 21 and Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate brands will serve as key sponsors of the event. In addition, Realogy signed an agreement with NAGLREP to underwrite new annual memberships in the 700-member trade association for the Realogy brands' affiliated agents to receive a discounted association membership rate, according to NAGLREP Founder Jeff Berger.

"We are very proud to sponsor the NAGLREP conference and help grow its membership association, as we fully support the mission of LGBT advocacy in the real estate community," said Tanya Reu, senior vice president of human resources for Realogy Franchise Group and Realogy Corporate. "It is our hope that other companies will follow our lead by taking an active role at this convention."

This is the first national business and networking forum of its kind dedicated to the LGBT real estate market and promoting homeownership in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community. The fall conference is expected to draw leading experts on the LGBT market, nationally recognized trainers, housing and real estate executives and about 400 top-producing LGBT real estate professionals.

According to Berger, who founded the group in 2007, it was the increased climate of acceptance and encouragement from various Realogy executives that urged him to move forward with a national event. "Times are changing," said Berger. "The words of encouragement and early sponsor support from Realogy and its real estate executives were a compelling influence that made the NAGLREP board feel that the time was right for a national LGBT industry event."
