NAREB Nashville is the Nashville Association of Real Estate Brokers, comprised primarily of African American Real Estate professionals, and they are hosting a 25th Anniversary Cocktail Hour & Awards Ceremony. The celebration will be held Saturday, July 9th from 6:00 pm – 8:30 pm at the 14TENN venue located at 1410 51st Ave N, Nashville, TN.

In the late 1980’s NAREB became a unified group of Nashville real estate professionals. They were brought together by a common interest. Their vision, purpose, and commitment was to exert influence upon matters affecting the African American real estate community.

Fast forward to July of 1997, NAREB became a chartered member of the oldest and largest trade association in America – The National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB). It is now 2022, and so much has changed over the years. They are celebrating 25 years of fighting and advocating for Democracy in Housing in Nashville.

As NAREB, they are choosing to celebrate their success with an Awards ceremony. They will celebrate all those who have helped pave the way over the past 25 years. They are also celebrating their current  African American Real Estate Professionals who work in excellence in and around Nashville.

This awards ceremony is NOT just for NAREB members, indeed it is for all African American Real Estate Professionals and others who believe that Democracy in Housing is worth fighting for. Their hope is that you can join them for an evening down memory lane, and a look into their bright future.
