Coldwell Banker settles discrimination allegations with Massachusetts

February 19, 2015
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage reached a settlement with Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey on Wednesday over allegations that it discriminated against renters with children.
     The real estate company will create new anti-discrimination policies and some of its agents will be required to attend fair housing training. The company also will pay approximately $17,500 to the Commonwealth, including $5,000 for the Childhood Lead Poisoning Prevention Program.
     The settlement follows allegations that Coldwell Banker agent Matthew Gore posted rental ads on Craigslist that discouraged families with children from applying.
