I recently received the “At Home With Diversity” certification from the National Association of Realtors!  According to the NAR: “At Home With Diversity (AHWD) is an NAR certification program designed to present a picture of the changing face of the real estate industry. Since 1998, the At Home With Diversity program has prepared over 20,000 REALTORS® to work effectively with and within today’s increasingly diverse pool of homebuyers.”  This course addresses the topics of diversity, fair housing, and business planning development.  Per the NAR Website: “The At Home With Diversity Course teaches REALTORS® how to:

  • Assess and understand attributes of diversity in local markets and their impact on the real estate industry
  • Understand basic competencies to earn the confidence of potential buyers and sellers, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, handicaps, familial status, or national origin
  • Build a business plan that minimizes risk and successfully services all types of clients”

My hope is that this course helps convey to my clients that they are working with a dynamic Realtor with expertise that transcends cultural barriers.  I am grateful for the instructors who gave their time to present meaningful and impactful information in such a useful way!

Your neighborhood expert,
