It is not illegal to answer this question. As an attorney, the "Real Estate Pros" have no clue what they are talking about. This is a simple demographic question. How many years in jail will you get for qouting statistical information on the racial makeup of a community? I'd like to see that law. Further, how about the BS that agents can't promote a neighborhood based on race, religion, ethnicity or familial status! If that didn't go on everyday, no homes would be sold! "This is a great place to raise a family!" or "Mr. and Mrs. Jones, you mentioned that you would like to be close to your church of choosing...there is one right down the street with a wonderful parish." If you don't know the answer to this person's question, just don't answer. But don't talk down to people as if being a real estate agent magically educates you on the law.
