About us

The Dearborn Realtist Board was formed in Chicago in 1941 by African American Real estate professionals out of a need to secure the right to equal housing opportunities, regardless of race, creed, or color.  For more than 72 years, DRB has participated in meaningful legal challenges and has supported legislative initiative that ensures the availability of fair and affordable housing for all American.  Today our mission is still one of social justice, civic accountability, and to provide access economic opportunities through real estate training and networking.  The Dearborn Realtist Board and National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) continue to champion the cause of democracy in housing.
