Earn the Certification
While the At Home With Diversity® Course teaches you how to transact business in culturally competent ways, official At Home With Diversity® Certification conveys to clients that you are a dynamic real estate professional with expertise that transcends cultural barriers.
REALTORS® who adapt to increasing cultural diversity in the market and wisely plan to meet the needs of diverse clients gain a competitive edge and expand opportunities. According to the 2013 NAR Member Profile, REALTORS® with designations and certifications are more likely to out-earn REALTORS® without real estate specialty education, making the At Home With Diversity® Certification more valuable than ever.
