Building a Diverse and Dynamic Real Estate Team


In the ever-changing field of real estate, the significance of diversity within teams cannot be overlooked. 

At the heart of Aspire Los Angeles lies a commitment to diversity in our team to serve our communities. Our team is a true reflection of this commitment, comprising individuals of various backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, beliefs and languages. This diversity is not just a checkbox but a driving force behind the team's success. Our commitment goes beyond mere compliance – we integrate all acquired skills and knowledge into our business practices. This not only allows us to effectively cater to diverse clients but position our team as dynamic professionals capable of relating through cultural, language or any other lens. 

At Aspire LA, we understand that a diverse team brings a range of perspectives, creative solutions, and cultural insights that can be invaluable in navigating the complexities of the real estate market. In a competitive industry, having a team that reflects the diversity of the market ensures a better understanding of clients' unique needs, resulting in stronger relationships and increased business opportunities.

Letty Vermeulen, the Founder of Aspire LA, recently took it upon herself to commit to obtaining  the At Home with Diversity certification from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR). Letty's achievement of the At Home with Diversity certification is a testament to her dedication to understanding and addressing the diverse needs of clients, as well as supporting and guiding her diverse team. This certification, earned by over 21,000 real estate professionals in North America, is a comprehensive eight-hour course covering topics such as diversity, fair housing, and business planning development. It equips REALTORS® with the tools needed to expand homeownership opportunities and aligns with the nation's fair housing commitment.

As the real estate landscape continues to evolve, embracing diversity is not just a choice but a necessity. The At Home with Diversity® certification exemplifies the commitment of real estate professionals like Letty Vermeulen to meet the diverse needs of clients. Aspire stands as a shining example, showcasing how a diverse team not only fosters inclusivity but also provides a competitive edge in the dynamic world of real estate.

Recently, at SidexSide 2024, Letty’s commitment to DEI lead to an invite to speak on a panel amongst other industry leader. In building diverse teams, we not only reflect the communities we serve but also ensure a brighter, more inclusive future for the real estate industry.
