We spoke with Jeff Berger, Founder of the National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals (NAGLREP), as part of celebrating Pride this month.
What is the mission of your organization?
NAGLREP has a mission of business and advocacy. On a business level, our 2,800+ members share an LGBT and allied referral network. As advocates, through education, we raise awareness to eradicate discrimination against the LGBT community and increase LGBT homeownership rates.
How does your organization define success?
By increasing LGBT homeownership. Our members actively serve LGBT buyers and sellers, so it’s one key at a time.
What is an interesting fact about your organization most people don’t know?
Our website, naglrep.com, receives on average 75,000 unique visits per month from LGBT buyers and sellers and is the #1 forum for LGBT buyers, sellers and allied real estate professionals.
What plans does your organization have for 2021?
September 21-23 we’re hosting the NAGLREP LGBT Real Estate Retreat in St Petersburg, FL. Click here to learn more about the event.
What inspires you / what do you love most about the work your organization does?
Compliments on my work with NAGLREP inspire me. My daughters also inspire me. If I can help both members, home buyers, and sellers, and my children, I’ve solved world peace. At least at home, lol.
