I'm happy to report that I started broker school this past Wednesday. It's been extremely interesting, even though I have to be there by 9 a.m. every day.
I've learned a lot in the last few days and here's an interesting tidbit of information that I wanted share with you because this comes up a lot in discussion with other realtors.
There's always been a lot of talk about whether or not landlords can discriminate against prospective tenants. The answer is yes they can disciminate against prospective tenants on the basis of age, religious beliefs, familial status and sexual orientation but they CANNOT discriminate against race when they are renting the apartment themselves.
HOWEVER, a landlord cannot disciminate against anything except age when their property is listed with a licensed realtor. Period. Paragraph. End of story.
