MEMBER TESTIMONIALS

Meg Burke, Associate Broker Realtor
I think the “At Home with Diversity” class is definitely worth your time.  It helps all of us, no matter what our race, ethnicity, faith, nationality, or economic background is, to be more aware of how our words and actions can be interpreted by others in ways we might not intend.  As Realtors, we certainly want all our clients to feel respected and appreciated; this class is a great tool to help us to do that!  I take a lot(!) of classes and I think Matthew Rathbun is one of the best instructors around. He’s an active Realtor in NOVA. so he knows exactly what we deal with every day.  Great at keeping things interesting & relatable (even in virtual classes!), Matthew often has extra tips and apps to recommend. He’s great at addressing our questions too!
