    • A real estate agent tries to “steer” a buyer away from a certain neighborhood
    • A landlord tries to avoid renting to someone by saying the unit advertised has been rented when it hasn’t
    • A property management company refuses to rent to a family with children or requires a higher deposit
    • A landlord evicts a person of color for a reason they wouldn’t evict a white tenant for
    • A mortgage broker asks questions or requests excessive documentation from an immigrant couple that they wouldn’t request from another buyer
    • A lender charges a single woman a higher interest rate than what her credit score should dictate
    • A landlord refuses to make reasonable accommodations for a tenant who is disabled
