Welcome to The National Association of Real Estate Brokers Real Estate Brokers of Baltimore
WHAT SETS US APART… NAREB is an alliance of real estate and industry-related companies joining together to provide quality services to the underserved communities we live and work in. The NAREB brings together years of combined experience in all facets of the real estate industry ensuring that as we learn from the past, we make the future better. Through NAREB’s vast network of financial professionals, we are able to serve the segment of the population that would not qualify for “traditional” mortgage financing through the use of special programs and credit counseling. NAREB’s charter is to build stronger communities through the increased number of minority homeownership as put forth by The President of The United States, Fannie-Mae, Freddie-Mac, HUD and numerous other participating parties.
The Realtist Designation Our Members are called “Realtists”, a term which incorporates the many disciplines we represent. Although composed principally of African Americans, the Realtist Organization embraces all qualified real estate practitioners who are committed to achieving the ideals of our vision, which is “Democracy in Housing”
Our History After World War II, the nation found itself facing a mood of deep seated social segregation it could no longer tolerate or afford. Yet the South, for one, confidently proclaimed itself to be the ne plus ultra “uppermost limits”. Thus was born the civil rights movement – a period of the most difficult but necessary struggle to topple the crumbling walls of segregation erected between Americans who had fought – and died – together.
The postwar years gave African Americans inspiration, confidence, strength and hope for a better America. The United Nations had been formed and Ralph J. Bunche had become the United Nations Division Trustee. African Americans were gaining better paying jobs and the Supreme Court had finally passed a ruling that restrictive covenants and private agreements to exclude persons of designated races from the ownership of real property were not enforceable under the law. Our History
Although the lives of African Americans were changing for the good, schools were still segregated under the separate but equal theory-and equal housing had yet to become a reality. This is what drove the men and women who met in Tampa, Florida on the sweltering night of July 29 th 1947 to form the National Association Of Real Estate Brokers – NAREB W.E.B. Du BoisW.E.B.

They began by electing temporary officers as follows: W.D. Morrison, President Horace Sudduth, Vice President W. H. Hollins, Treasurer F. Henry Williams, Secretary Our History
Word soon spread, In 1948 Daniel Spalding, Linwood Koger, Philathea Carter, George Carroll and a group of other real estate professionals formed a local chapter of NAREB. They named this chapter The Real Estate Brokers of Baltimore (REBB). Since It's inception the Members of REBB have proudly served the Baltimore metropolitan area as well as the surrounding counties.
