- CABREP Mission Statement -
We are a network for Black REALTORS®, advancing as business leaders in the industry, and in our communities. We are advocates for increasing Black Homeownership. We fully embrace our members by acknowledging, mentoring, supporting, and developing them into industry leaders both locally and nationally.
We believe in making a significant impact in the world, by closing the gaps: in representation, in homeownership, in wealth creation, and in socio-economic opportunities, by teaching the next generation of black REALTOR® Leaders. In order to help unlock their full potential, we provide support, facilitate training, coaching, mentoring, create opportunities for personal and professional growth, and nurture leadership advancement.
By establishing strategic partnerships, and meaningful relationships within an ever-increasing network of peers, we are able to use the collective power of proven experience, knowledge, understanding and insight, to build confidence in black REALTORS®, add value, and increase their skills and abilities in all facets of real estate related leadership, public policy, outreach, and advocacy. We work to recognize, acknowledge and move beyond bias, as we continuously engage in open, authentic, transparent conversations with other leaders and policymakers, to create immediate change, and measurable, sustainable socio-economic equality for all black Americans and other marginalized groups.
We appreciate our Strategic Partners who help us execute our Mission:
Words from the President
Dolores Golden, Broker
In the Beginning, Founding Members would meet after California Association of Realtors® (C.A.R) Annual meetings to talk about what went on in their committee meetings and share with each other what was happening in our local communities. Founding members and others met in places like hotel Bars, met for lunches and dinners and even created their own social hours at times.
Practicing Real Estate While Being Black, is different in all areas of the State, some Realtors® did not receive direction and support from their local Associations, so TheBlack Caucus was formed, we named it
after the Congressional Black Caucus (to mentor and encourage, and stick together with our unique issues).
We then started Getting a Room, "So to Speak", so we can meet more privately and encourage and mentor our fellow Realtors® that were new to C.A.R to make sure they had guidance to achieve Leadership
in our State and Local Organizations.
We Organized our efforts to form the California Association of Black Real Estate Professionals, (CABREP)! We are making Leadership Strides at C.A.R and our members are achieving local political positions and climbing the Leadership Ladder.
We are Truly , Out of the Shadows.
