The Real Estate Community of Google+ Under New Ownership
It is with some reluctance that I wish to announce my resignation as the owner of the Real Estate Community. I am doing this, for no other reason than to provide more time for other business activities. Starting tomorrow, Saturday May 16th, ownership of the Community will be transferred to my good and capable friend +Luke Skar of +Inlanta Mortgage - Madison. I feel confident that under Luke's leadership and direction, the Community will continue to prosper as it has over the past few years.

In the interest of full transparency, there are several issues I'd like to address:

1. This is not a sale. I am transferring ownership, for no financial or other considerations whatsoever.
2. I intend to continue my full and active presence on social media. You are not likely to notice any change.
3. Passing the baton to +Luke Skar is an easy decision. Luke is a friend and an active member of the Google+ real estate community at large. He has the necessary knowledge and experience to forge ahead with the Community. I have confidence that he will be diligent in upholding the high principals under which the Community has flourished.

I want to thank +Janis Borgueta +Connor T. MacIVOR +Melissa Marro and +Deborah Lamb for all their contributions in helping make the REC the great Community that it is. With the largest membership of only North American real estate professionals and the highest number of posts per member, the REC is easily the premier real estate destination on Google+.

I look forward to seeing you all on Google+ and the other social media networks.

Cheers;

Elias Nathaniel

The Fair Housing Act Basics
Have you come across a property owner that discriminated against any of these groups?

1. Race or Color
2. National Origin
3. Religion
4. Sex
5. Family Status (Including children under the age of 18 living with parents or custodians; pregnant women and people securing custody of children under 18.)
6. Handicap (Disability)

Discrimination of any kind should be discouraged, but going against the Fair Housing Act could mean trouble. How do you personally handle discrimination, whether it is overt or covert?
