TAMPA, Fla. (April 26, 2016) – We are proud to announce Terri Peavy has been awarded the At Home with Diversity® certification from the National Association of REALTORS®. Peavy is a sales executive with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Florida Properties Group’s South Tampa office located at 4950 W. Kennedy Blvd., Tampa, FL.
Peavy 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 Peavy 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.
