The law actually prohibits housing discrimination based on race. If you know of specific instances, you might want to have an attorney look at the situation and decide if filing a complaint with the Department Of Fair Housing And Employment is warranted. Let me know if I can help.

The awful truth is... Yes you are correct. There are certain areas where it is known and quite evident that Asian listing agents and property managers want to keep the majority of its residence Asian.

I know Diamond Bar is actually a pretty diverse community. Kim Young was my agent in for a home sale in CA. He's the best person and agent I've met in a long time.

Not at all! Just get an agressive professional realtor and let her work for you to chase those listing agents and let her make sure you are in your dream home.

I hope this is not true!!!

This should not happen to anyone in this day and age! MY LORD!!!!!

Try getting an aggressive agent on your side. One who will call agents out who behave in ways that are not only unethical but DOWN right illegal!!!

Maybe you may want to try Orange County. Maybe Brea or Yorba Linda which are close to Diamond Bar and have great schools!!!


Best of Luck to YOu!!!

Sorry, but I doubt you will get any of the Realtors to talk about a subject like this. If you are talking about listing agents that are Realtors, then go to the office Broker and discuss your issues with them. They run the office.

I agree,we are Hispanic and have been looking to rent in OC. Haven't had any luck even though we meet the requirements. Most of the agents have been Asians.
