ERA Real Estate recently recognized Plano, Texas-based ERA iRealty for its commitment to diversity with the 2018 Unity Award for inclusiveness in business practices. Managing Partner Kelley Liu and her team, including fellow leaders Daniel Eng, Trang Dang-Le and Judith Kim, will be celebrated along with other award winners at the 2019 FUEL ERA® global conference, held March 19-22, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nev.
The Unity Award honors the ERA company that demonstrates inclusiveness in their business practices by working to achieve and sustain minority homeownership and transacting business in a culturally competent manner. This includes bilingual marketing efforts, commitment to a diverse workforce and client base, and volunteer work to educate the community on home ownership.
ERA iRealty is a unique office with global-affiliated independent agents who speak over 14 languages, including Cantonese, Mandarin, Vietnamese and Korean. ERA iRealty’s agents pride themselves to have worked with homeowners from varied sociocultural backgrounds, and value inclusivity and professionalism above all else. They have created long-lasting agent-client relationships built on trust and expertise, with the goal of helping buyers and sellers from all cultures realize the dream of owning their perfect home.
“At ERA we believe in the strength of communities and take seriously our role in building our neighborhoods,” says Simon Chen, president and CEO of ERA. “ERA iRealty is a model brokerage that goes beyond language skills—they are committed to encouraging inclusivity and promoting equal access to homeownership. Kelley and her team’s win of the prestigious Unity Award is well-deserved. They have developed an approach that has great lessons for everyone in the ERA® family.”
“We are honored to be presented with the Unity Award and to be recognized by ERA for our dedication to building a welcoming, supportive environment within our community,” says Liu. “Our affiliated agents and brokers have recognized and adapted our business tactics to accommodate the growing diversity in the Plano and greater Dallas areas, and look forward to this continued evolution as the real estate industry transforms and grows alongside it.”
