Celebrating Black Excellence in Real Estate this Black History Month

As we embark on Black History Month in February, as the CEO of Michelle Fraser, Real Estate Team a Black-owned real estate brokerage in the Durham Region, Ontario, want to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible contributions of Black individuals to the real estate industry.

This month, we celebrate the resilience, determination, and achievements of Black people throughout history, including those who paved the way for success in the field of real estate.

Trailblazers of the Past:

We honor pioneers like Madam C.J. Walker, the first Black millionaire in America, who used her wealth to invest in real estate and empower other Black women. Her story serves as a testament to the entrepreneurial spirit and visionary leadership that continues to inspire generations.

We also recognize the tireless efforts of Dorothy Height, a civil rights activist who fought against housing discrimination and helped shape the Fair Housing Act of 1968. Her legacy serves as a reminder of the ongoing fight for equal opportunities in housing and the importance of advocating for fair practices in our industry.


Celebrating Black Excellence in the Present

Today, we are fortunate to see a thriving community of Black-owned real estate businesses and professionals in the Durham Region and across Canada. These individuals are making significant contributions to the industry, fostering innovation, and breaking down barriers to create a more diverse and inclusive environment.

Looking Forward to a Brighter Future

At Michelle Fraser, we are committed to fostering diversity and inclusion within the real estate industry. We believe that creating a welcoming environment for individuals from all backgrounds is essential to building a strong and successful community. We actively support initiatives that address racial disparities in homeownership and create opportunities for Black individuals to pursue careers in real estate.


Join us in the Celebration
