Social Responsibility in Real Estate

In light of the recent protests, we want to start a dialogue with our colleagues in the real estate industry about how we can enable positive social change/ responsibility through the work we do. Derek asks and gives his answers for the following four questions:

1) What aspect of real estate is the worst driver of unethical behavior?

2) What are the most outrageous interpretations of a real estate law that totally missed the point of the law in the first place?

3) What is the most self-defeating policy you’ve encountered?

4) What is the single most impactful thing that we can do in our industry that generates positive social returns?
