Stronger Together at Edina Realty

We believe that diverse viewpoints and backgrounds build stronger communities, and we’re dedicated to the inclusion of all individuals and perspectives in our planning, our thinking and in our interactions.

Our diversity and inclusion team of agents, employees and executive leaders work together toward finding new ways of connecting and reaching underserved communities in Minnesota and western Wisconsin to close the homeownership gap. The team guides education opportunities, identifies community needs, participates in and sponsors community events, and drives meaningful change through conversation and action.
