Help Us Build The Mosaic

NC REALTORS® is committed to diversity in all facets of the association and with everything we do. That’s why we created the MOSAIC campaign. Piece by piece, we’re working together to create a beautiful and more complete picture of what diversity and inclusion can do for the real estate industry, our communities in North Carolina and across the globe.

We’re highlighting the diversity of our members, showcasing our commitment to the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, encouraging discussions on diversity and inclusion in our communities and working together to be ambassadors of social change.

Join the movement and help us by #buildingthemosaic.
