Every year for at least the last five, HAR has offered an important course, the “At Home with Diversity Certification” course. This one-day class covers training and tools agents need to grow their business in a diverse setting, like Houston. Learn about the people that make up your local market, along with their customs, values, real estate needs and most importantly, what expectations they have of you, their REALTOR®.

This course specifically addresses development of cross-cultural communication skills, fair housing issues and business planning. It also teaches you to transact business in culturally competent ways.

“Never before has this class, At Home With Diversity, been so relevant to the current events. We Realtors are in a leadership position to use Fair Housing laws and NAR’s Code of Ethics to help eliminate the underlying racism that unfortunately still exists in this country. Sign up today for this class and let us do our part.” HAR Course instructor: Richard P. Miranda, MBA, CIPS, ABR, CNE, SMP, SRS

It is approved for 8 TREC credit hours, the investment is $49 (normally $99) and will be offered online in July and in September. Visit www.har.com/edu to register.
