As a REALTOR® in Silver Spring, MD and beyond I value the diversity of the community I live and work in. Achieving the At Home With Diversity® Certification is my commitment to my clients to continue to do so.
(Silver Spring, MD) January 31, 2017- Andrea Bedard, MA of Thompson Company, REALTORS has been awarded the At Home with Diversity® certification from the National Association of REALTORS®.
Andrea Bedard joins 25,000 other real estate professionals in North America who have earned the certification after completing an 8 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 and equipping NAR's members with the tools they need to expand 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 Andrea Bedard 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 not only apply the multi-faceted skills and tools they learned in the course to business practices, but conveys to clients they’re dynamic real estate professionals with expertise that transcends cultural barriers.
