Watch Glenn Kelman’s thought-provoking talk on segregation in real estate from this year’s Inman Connect San Francisco for an eye-opening look into one of the most unfortunate realities of our industry — and how Kelman plans to take action against it.

Many of America’s cities are still segregated, and the real estate industry — including Redfin — may be perpetuating the situation, according to Glenn Kelman, the often outspoken CEO of Seattle-based real estate brokerage Redfin.

“What you can see is that even though we have this motto in America where, ‘we are all one,’ we are actually in some ways deeply divided,” Kelman said.

“Fifty years after the passing of the Fair Housing Act, a city like Chicago is almost perfectly segregated by race. It’s not just that city, it’s almost every city in America.”
