The Nevada Association of Real Estate Brokers is the Las Vegas chapter of the National Association of Real Estate Brokers Inc. Founded in 1947, NAREB is the oldest minority trade association in America. NAREBLV will host a series of events throughout the year.
Each board member takes a solemn oath to uphold and administer their elected office in conformity with the bylaws and policies of the organization.
During the Installation Gala, NAREB will host a silent auction benefiting Howard E. Hollingsworth Elementary students. Statistics show one in five children in the United States live in food insecure households, which means they lack consistent access to enough food. Nationally, 62 percent of low-income parents worry about food for their children running out before the end of the month. All of students attending Hollingsworth are on reduced or free lunch. In March, NAREB past President Shanta Patton headed a Spring Break food drive. Through her collaborative efforts, Patton and NAREB were able to provide more than 19,000 meals to ensure that no student went hungry while the school was on break. NAREB will continue this effort into 2019 by committing to providing more than 13,200 meals for the 640 students to combat childhood hunger during spring break. To help support this effort all auction items are available for attendees to view and purchase, with all proceeds going to combat childhood hunger at Hollingsworth Elementary.
