How to Enhance the Real Estate Industry with Diversity and Inclusion
Updated: Mar 25
In almost any line of work, there is a higher percentage of men in advanced, top-ranking positions. But what if you knew that opening the real estate profession to a wider range of sexes and ethnicities would add to the success of the industry?
Diversity and inclusion in real estate is an issue. Clouded by unconscious biases, those in real estate may not even understand or realize the immense presence of these inequalities. Being a one-sided industry, real estate is missing out on an abundance of growth and prosperity. With this lack of variety, the real estate market is limiting the ability of their clients, the home buyers or sellers, to find a real estate agent that checks all their boxes. Lastly, there is a problem with the entrance into the real estate field. With high-priced courses and hard-to-find materials, many people are automatically deterred from even attempting to get into realty. This is what we at HomeServices Real Estate Academy have set out to revolutionize.
It is hard to know where to begin, but it all starts with the unlearning of this field as traditionally male and traditionally white. Acknowledging the gaps doesn’t mean succumbing to them, it means active commitment to change
