Community is the heart and soul of Downtown Expert Realty. Nick’s been on a mission to promote diversity, equity and inclusion in the housing market. “Everyone deserves safe, quality, affordable housing,” Nick explains. “That’s something we as realtors and brokers can actively do something about.” Nick notes.
To fulfill Downtown Expert Realty’s dedication to diversity, equity and inclusion, all associates achieve the At Home with Diversity designation, a training and certification program to increase cultural competency at all steps of the real estate process. “St. Pete is the definition of multicultural,” Nick explains. Spending a day in downtown St. Pete, you’ll hear a symphony of different languages, and taste a bevy of different, delicious cuisines and desserts as well as our new Pier.
For Nick – whose upbringing was defined by this multicultural milieu – St. Pete’s diversity is its heart and soul. Nick is celebrating St. Pete’s diversity through his own work in the community. To make real estate information more accessible for his neighbors, Nick launched a podcast, Home2All, sharing insights into the real market and interviewing local industry experts. He also started the Downtown Expert School of Real Estate, which provides online training for aspiring real estate agents, associates and brokers. “It was really important to us to invest in education,” Nick explains. “There’s so much opportunity in this industry – we want to make that’s accessible to young people in St. Pete.” The school is now training approximately 20 students per month with online self paced and live stream courses with in person classes coming soon.
