School supplies are essential for a successful education. Unfortunately, many students don't have access to the necessary materials they need – that's why we're asking you to join us in donating school supplies from July 1st - July 31st!
We’re collecting items such as notebooks, pens and pencils, erasers, backpacks, calculators and more. Help students in need to make a positive contribution to your community.
Every donation helps, and no amount is too small! Whether you’re buying supplies for one student or a whole classroom, we’ll make sure that every item gets into the hands of someone who needs it.

Thank you once again for your attendance and we look forward to welcoming you to future NCJAR events.
Every year, disability advocacy organizations around the world celebrate Disability Pride Month. The month-long celebration is held every July in the United States to raise awareness and promote the various contributions of people with disabilities. In real estate, it is important to understand and support individuals with disabilities to provide them with safe and accessible housing. So as NCJAR joins the global community in celebrating Disability Pride Month, let's take a moment to look at how the real estate industry can be more welcoming to people with disabilities.
The Fair Housing Act (FHA) of 1968, as amended in 1988, prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities in all aspects of real estate transactions, including rental, sale, and financing of housing. The law requires realtors to make reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities to ensure that they receive housing opportunities like everyone else. To comply, realtors must understand what constitutes a reasonable accommodation, how to request an accommodation, and the requirements and limitations under the FHA.

A member of NCJAR reported that agents are being contacted to list a property for someone identified as "NOT LOCAL", and they are provided with bogus contact information, including an email address that contains the names of the real owners.
If you receive an unknown call or message, please report and block the number.
Temperatures are heating up, yet the U.S. housing market remains cooler than usual for this time of year due to a combination of low inventory and higher borrowing costs, which have restricted market activity going into the summer homebuying season. According to the latest data from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), national existing-home sales climbed 0.2% from the previous month but were down 20.4% compared to the same time last year, as fluctuating mortgage rates and a near all-time low level of inventory continue to influence home sales.
July is Disability Pride Month, a time to recognize and celebrate the contributions of people with disabilities. NCJAR is proud to join in celebrating Disability Pride Month – and we invite you to do the same!
So, what is Disability Pride Month? It’s an opportunity for individuals with disabilities, family members, friends, and allies to come together to recognize, appreciate, and celebrate the achievements of people with disabilities. The celebration also serves to advance disability rights and promote a positive image for the disability community.
