The Lexington-Bluegrass Association of Realtors® (LBAR) is recognizing Fair Housing Month this April by providing home buying and selling resources to visitors of Julietta Market. The public market is located inside Greyline Station, Lexington’s former bus garage at the corner of Limestone and Loudon. Realtor® associations around the country are commemorating the 53rd anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act in effort to further nationwide progress toward ending housing discrimination in the United States.

“April is Fair Housing Month, when we honor the struggle so many Americans have engaged in to secure equitable housing opportunity in the United States,” said Kristy Gooch, president of LBAR. “That effort continues to this day, and LBAR is proud to play a leading role in helping to secure diverse, inclusive communities throughout the Bluegrass region. Having a presence at Julietta Market is just one way to educate residents about the benefits of homeownership and providing resources on the current state of the market.”  

On Saturday, April 24 and Sunday, April 25, LBAR will have a pop-up booth inside Julietta Market with resources available to explain the real estate process of buying and selling and the advantages to owning a home. Members of LBAR will also be available to answer questions and discuss the current real estate market. In addition, information will be available on how to obtain a real estate license and make a career in the industry. Visitors who stop by the LBAR booth can register to win one of two $100 gift cards. LBAR will also be presenting the North Limestone Community Development Corporation (NOLI CDC) with a $1,000 grant to further their work in the neighborhood and assist with programs that support the area.

Each April, Realtors® across the country observe the anniversary of the passage of the Fair Housing Act of 1968 with events designed to educate about housing discrimination and segregation, and to recommit to expanding equal access to housing.
