A Korean-American couple recently asked Brian Bartholomew to show them homes only in Korean neighborhoods. Bartholomew, a sales associate with RE/MAX Cornerstone in Brea, Calif., immediately saw the red flag. “I can’t steer you toward an area just because of race,” he says he told the client. If Bartholomew had done what the client asked, he would have been in violation of fair housing law. The couple decided to continue working with Bartholomew, and he showed them homes in areas they requested by name rather than demographics.

Throughout the course of 2019, NCJAR held several events to help raise awareness and profits for the nonprofit organization. Some notable events include NCJAR®’s Annual Charity Golf Outing, which was held in June 2019 and was attended by over 100 members of the organization.
