Race in Real Estate: The Asian American Experience

Tuesday, October 20, 2020
10:30 AM - 11:30 AM
CAR Members - Complimentary | Non-Members -Complimentary

Registration will close on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 8:00 PM.

We’re continuing our series discussing race in real estate, this time focused on the Asian American experience. Asian Americans are currently experiencing a wave of racism as a result of rhetoric around the pandemic – but even before COVID-19 changed the world, they experienced a high denial of loan approvals. Our panel will discuss the Asian American experience in the homebuying and selling process, including the appeal (and challenges) of multigenerational housing and how the rise in hate crimes impacts where Asian Americans decide to call home. This conversation is an important component as we continue to shine a light on the importance of welcoming, inclusive communities.
