John T. Kidwell of Key Allegro Real Estate has been awarded the At Home with Diversity® certification from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
He joins 20,000 other real estate professionals in North America who have earned the certification after completing an eight-hour course addressing topics of diversity, fair housing, and business planning development. The program is designed to meet the nation’s fair housing commitment by educating the equipping NAR members with tools they need to explain homeownership opportunities for the growing number of culturally diverse buyers and sellers in the housing market who identify with groups entailing race, ethnicity, religion, gender, handicaps, familial status, or national origin.
Today more than one third of Americans are minorities. By 2050, minorities will be the majority. Real estate professionals like Kidwell 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.
At Home with Diversity® certification allows REALTORS® to apply the multi-faceted skills and tools they learned in the course to business practices, and conveys to clients they’re dynamic real estate professionals with expertise that transcends cultural barriers.
