NAR Certification

You're Registered!
At Home With Diversity is an NAR certification program designed to present a picture of the changing face of the real estate industry, preparing REALTORS to work effectively with and within today's increasingly diverse pool of home buyers.

Students will gain the ability to assess and understand attributes of diversity in local markets and their impact on the real estate industry and an understanding of the basic competencies to earn the confidence of potential buyers and sellers, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, gender, handicaps, familial status, or national origin.

The AHWD course addresses the topics of diversity, fair housing, and business planning development.  After successfully completing the course, REALTORS are eligible to apply for the official AHWD certification, which conveys to clients they are working with a dynamic real estate professional with expertise that transcends cultural barriers.  To earn the certification a one time $75 application fee must be submitted at the completion of class. 

This class will be held as a hybrid. You can take the class in person at RASM North or by webinar. Select the corresponding registration fee to sign up.  Please Note: Anyone taking this class via webinar is required to be on camera the entire time, please be sure to have working webcam before choosing this option. Thank you.
