Dear Fair Housing Lady:I have been attending your classes and reading your articles for what seems like years now. Do you ever get bored keeping up with all of the Fair Housing issues for our apartment industry?
Sincerely, Just Wondering
It not only seems like years that I have been teaching fair housing, it actually has been years (decades in fact). Do I get bored with this? Nope! I have had the opportunity to meet great people who want to do things right, and that has been very inspiring to me. Being a small part of contributing to equal housing opportunity has been a most fulfilling part of my career. And it can be fun, too. In fact, since it is the holiday season and people of many faiths and cultures will be giving gifts, here is my small gift to FRMS customers. A word search giving you some interesting tidbits on fair housing, but only if you are willing to look for them. The clues are below, so learn and enjoy. The first person who gets back to me via email with a list of the correct answers will win a $25 Starbuck’s card. And should you become stuck or frustrated, I am only an email away with the answers: Nadeen.Green@ForRent.com.
