Over the last few months, there has been increased conversation and dialogue around racism, and what we can do to make a real lasting change in this country. It’s been necessary for us to talk about how racism impacts the real estate professionals in Chicago, and the challenges we face.


In order for us to begin to see change, it’s important for local and state leaders to have and facilitate the necessary conversations. We need focused dialogue and the lesson of this season is to get comfortable with being uncomfortable. I’m joined today by Realtors and industry leaders to have these conversations, and share honestly some of our experiences and ideas about how we can move forward. 


What can real estate associations and leaders do to aid in finding solutions? How can we start to heal Chicago? In this episode, panelists Tracey Royal, Carrie Little, Nykea Pippion-McGriff, Sara Ware and Andy Burton share their thoughts. We talk about what it’s like being black in real estate in Chicago and possible solutions so that we can bring about not only diversity and inclusivity, but also equity as well.
