National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals
Welcome to the home of the National Association of Gay & Lesbian Real Estate Professionals. We are a mission driven trade organization that is part business and part advocacy for equality, sustainable homeownership and the wealth and stability it affords not only the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender community, but all American families.
With marriage equality sweeping the nation, family formation within the LGBT community continues to be a driving force of the housing market. The modern American family is changing before our eyes, and the geographical diversity of where LGBT families are living is striking. From big cities to small farming towns, from the deep South to the Pacific Northwest, LGBT families are part of the American landscape. Studies on the total number of LGBT individuals in the United States show a range from 6-7% percent of the total US adult population, and LGBT families live in 99.3 percent of all counties in the United States.
We are the voice of many LGBT families that dream of owning a home and raising their children in stable, safe and attractive neighborhoods. It is our job to remind leaders in the business, policy and regulatory arenas that all hard working families are entitled to the American dream of homeownership.
The LGBT community is a major contributor to the growth of todays housing market, and it is important we show leaders in the business community the significance of the buying power of the LGBT community. The LGBT community is an estimated 6-7% of the US adult population and according to 2021 US government census data, the LGBT community is the fastest growing minority segment in the US, with close to $1.4 Trillion spending power – on par with Hispanic American, African American, and AAPI segments.
