Fair Housing 4 CE Hours (Core Elective)

About this Event

Discrimination can be subtle or overt and sometimes unintentional. It iscrucial that real estate practitioners are aware of and compliant with the laws that govern housing discrimination.

In this class, you will learn:

This course looks at the history of fair housing and examines in depth the most pertinent legislation in force today. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 was the first major legislation that applied to residential housing. The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 broadened the coverage, increased the enforcement policies of the Act and stiffened the penalties invoked for violation of the Act. The course will also examine the New Mexico Human Rights Act and detail the additional classes that it offers protection to. Specific advertising policies are investigated and illustrated. The procedure for filing a complaint of discrimination are studied in detail and there are lots of hints on how to stay clear of discriminatory practices in sales, rentals and financing of real estate.

Hi, I’m instructor Gavin Leach. I have the unique privilege to be a part of Mesa Real Estate Institute, LLC!

My real estate journey starts in 2003. I was a junior at UNM when I decided to attend a campus visit by Pulte Homes. Before I knew it, I was hired as salesperson for Pulte Homes as their sales consultant at the brand new Ventana Ranch West subdivision. I spent 12 great years at Pulte Homes in many different capacities – sales person, marketing coordinator, production assistant and public relations associate.

Since then I have transitioned to teaching full time at both UNM and CNM as I complete my Ph.D. in instructional design. More specifically, I have taught at the Anderson School of Management, communication courses at the Communication and Journalism and Freshman Learning Community. While at CNM, I have taught in the Business Information and Technology Department.

All of which make me uniquely qualified to teach continuing education courses with Mesa Real Estate Institute, LLC. I guess what they say is true, you can take a person out of real estate but you can’t take the real estate out of the person!

Instructor Gavin Leach is approved to teach Intro to Property Management, Managing Single Family Homes and Small Investment properties and Uniform Owner-Resident Relations Act.
