Realtors, HUD develop multicultural course

The Greater Baltimore Board of Realtors, with the help of the National Association of Realtors and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, has developed a course to help its members work with the growing number of multicultural and minority homebuyers.

The one-day course, "At Home With Diversity," will teach Realtors how to work with buyers of various cultures and ethnic backgrounds and to encourage more minorities to enter the real estate industry. Those completing the course will get a certificate.
