You may see agents with an alphabet soup of letters on their business cards. It generally denotes an interest in and willingness to study further in an area of real estate specialization to earn a designation or certificate. Most agents will take classes through their brokerage or association but these are the designations that are recognized by the National Association of Realtors®
I am proud to hold the following:
The designation requires completion of courses focusing on the critical aspects of international real estate transactions. CIPS designees are connected to an influential network of over 3,500 professionals who turn to each other first when looking for referral partners.
The Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) designation is the premier credential in seller representation. It is designed to elevate professional standards and enhance personal performance. The designation is awarded to real estate professionals who demonstrate the knowledge and skills essential for seller advocacy. SRS designees represent a global community of REALTORS® who use their advanced training and expertise to go above and beyond their client’s expectations.
NAR’s Military Relocation Professional certification focuses on educating real estate professionals about working with current and former military service members to find housing solutions that best suit their needs and take full advantage of military benefits and support.
The first and only negotiation credential recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®, the Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE) certification is designed to elevate and enhance negotiating skills so that today’s real estate professionals can play the game to win.
This certification is designed for REALTORS® who facilitate the buying, selling, or management of properties for investment, development, retirement, or second homes in a resort, recreational and/or vacation destination are involved in this market niche.
