At Home With Diversity® is an educational experience designed to present a picture of the changing face of the real estate industry. More importantly, the class teaches REALTORS® how to work effectively with — and within — a rapidly changing multicultural market.
Since its inception in 1998, At Home with Diversity® has addressed the topics of diversity, fair housing and business planning development in a full-day certification course.
