Realtors® Applaud President Biden’s Commitment to Unifying America in Inauguration Address

NAR pledges to work with the President to advance common goals in areas of economic prosperity, housing security

WASHINGTON (January 20, 2021) – As Joseph R. Biden, Jr. was sworn in today as the 46th President of the United States of America, leadership from the nation’s largest trade association applauded his focus on unifying Americans and restoring economic strength during his inauguration address. President Biden noted we have “much to build,” and that “with unity, we can do great things,” but “without unity… there is no progress.”

“America’s 1.4 million Realtors® are as diverse as the nation and consumers they serve,” said NAR President Charlie Oppler, a Realtor® from Franklin Lakes, N.J., and the CEO of Prominent Properties Sotheby’s International. “I was heartened by President Biden’s call for unity. As Americans, we will see leaders come and go during our lives, but our nation succeeds only when we unite.

“NAR is committed to assisting President Biden and the new Congress as we seek to heal our nation and strengthen the economy, continuing our 113-year tradition of working with every Congress and Presidential administration. We look forward to partnering on many of our common goals, including policies that will advance and expand the American Dream of homeownership, address housing affordability and accessibility, and promote fair housing and racial equity.”

The National Association of Realtors® is America’s largest trade association, representing more than 1.4 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
