The Board hopes the collaboration will lead to better outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples; who are frequently the subject of racial discrimination from the real estate industry.

The NSW Office of Fair Trading will receive information from the board about problem real estate agents, and will tackle them through their compliance requirements.
