The National Association of Realtors has adopted a Code for Equal Opportunity. The code sets forth suggested standards of conduct for Realtors so that they may comply with fair housing laws. The Realtors Code, while it does not have the force of law, asks equal treatment for those classes protected by state and federal law and also for one more class, sexual preference.

The National Association of Realtors has a voluntary cooperative agreement with HUD. This agreement, called the Fair Housing Partnership Agreement, stipulates that HUD and The National Association of Realtors will work together to identify fair housing issues, concerns, and solutions.

Graniteville is not geographical next to Stapleton. Realtors do not answer ethnic questions. Ethnic questions are illegal, and offensive. The Federal Fair Housing Act specifically prohibits the following acts, where they are based on prospective tenant's or buyer's membership in a protected group:
Refusing to sell, rent, or negotiate with any person, or otherwise making a dwelling unavailable to any person;
Changing terms, conditions, or services for different individuals as a means of discrimination
Practicing discrimination through any statement or advertisement that restricts the sale or rental of residential property,
Representing to any person, as a means of discrimination, that a dwelling is not available for sale or rental.

Sarah.

Stapleton is not next to Granitville. As Joe already said Realtors can not answer ethnic questions. Every buyer who's not familiar with the place they are thinking to move to should research a neighborhood that they are thinking to move to in regards to shopping, transportation, schools an so on and so forth.
