Why You Should Choose
a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS)

In the current marketplace, you need more than just a REALTORŪ. You need a professional with the unique training and know-how to create opportunities, identify potential pitfalls up front, and make your home-buying or-selling experience an unqualified success. If you're buying or selling a home, you need a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS).

A Certified Residential Specialist is a REALTORŪ who has earned certification from the Council of Residential Specialists by completing a rigorous course of advanced training and by meeting significant experience requirements. It's this rare combination that makes a Certified Residential Specialist more than just another real estate agent. It's the ability to make a real difference in the purchase or sale of your home that places them among the best in the business. Discover the difference for yourself. And discover how enjoyable and successful a real estate relationship can be.

Less than 4% of the more than one million REALTORSŪ in business today hold the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, the highest professional designation awarded to REALTORSŪ in the residential sales field. That's because just one in 25 has the experience, the commitment and the hours of advanced training necessary to call themselves a Certified Residential Specialist. Yet, despite all the extra expertise you get, a Certified Residential Specialist doesn't cost any more than any other REALTORŪ. In fact, the skills and know-how you get with a Certified Residential Specialist may actually save you time and money. And that's just the beginning. Here are some of the other reasons you should consider hiring a Certified Residential Specialist when you buy or sell a home:

  • Experience A hallmark of the Certified Residential Specialist isn't just the advanced training and education they receive. Just as important is the marketplace expertise they bring to the sale or purchase of your home. To earn the Certified Residential Specialist Designation, every REALTORŪ must have significant experience and a number of real estate transactions. These strict requirements are your assurance that your Certified Residential Specialist is able to apply his or her education in the real world, giving you the knowledgeable, skilled service you expect.
  • Ethics aren't just important in a REALTORŪ. They're essential. That's why every Certified Residential Specialist is required to maintain membership in the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORSŪ and to abide by its strict Code of Ethics. That means, when you work with a Certified Residential Specialist you can rest assured you're dealing with a trained real estate expert who will treat you fairly and professionally every step of the way.
  • Focus on Residential Real Estate The process of the purchase and sale of homes has its own unique set of issues and risks that may appear during the transaction. Whether you're looking to buy or sell a home, you face many challenges along the way - financial risks, legal issues, even the possibility that a home purchase or sale will fall through. A Certified Residential Specialist is trained to minimize those risks. With that in mind, a Certified Residential Specialist is prepared to bring you the benefits of their significant experience and variety of successful real estate transactions. That expertise, combined with advanced education in areas like finance, technology and marketing, lets you know that your Certified Residential Specialist is able to make your home purchase or sale a success in every way.
  • Technological Expertise Technology is changing the face of real estate. Computers, the Internet, mobile communications - each has helped make the market more efficient, and at the same time, more daunting. More than ever, the success of your home purchase or sale depends on the ability of your REALTORŪ to harness that technology and make it work for you. For that reason, the training required of your Certified Residential Specialist focuses extensively on technology and its effect on the real estate business. You can count on a Certified Residential Specialist not just to understand technology, but to use it to make your home purchase or sale a worry-free experience.
