The National Association of REALTORS® and its affiliated Institutes, Societies, and Councils provide a wide range of programs and services that help members increase their skills, proficiency, and knowledge. Designations and certifications acknowledging experience and expertise in various real estate sectors are awarded by NAR and each affiliated group upon completion of required courses and experience. The following are the REALTOR® designations and certifications that I have earned.
Why Choose a Realtor® With a CRS designation to help you buy or sell or Denver area home?
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents, managers, and brokers. The CRS Designation recognizes professional accomplishments in both experience and education. Since 1977 the Council of Residential Specialists has been conferring the CRS Designation on real estate agents who meet its stringent requirements. These requirements include taking intense courses, passing exams for each course, and having a high level of residential real estate sales experience.
With only 4% of all REALTORS® having this CRS designation, there is a big difference between a CRS and other agents. You can learn more about the Certified Residential Specialist designation and the Council of Residential Specialists here.
The Real Estate Negotiation Expert (RENE) certification is the first and only negotiation credential recognized by the National Association of REALTORS®.

Why Denver home buyers should choose a Realtor® With an ABR designation?
The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation is designed for real estate buyer agents who focus on working directly with buyer-clients at every stage of the home buying process. The ABR designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded through the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council (REBAC), an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS®, to real estate practitioners who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria. The Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council was founded in 1988 to promote superior buyer-representation skills and services.
Whether you are buying or selling a home in Denver, a REALTOR® with a the PSA certification adds a valuable perspective to your transaction while taking the guesswork out of pricing. Gain the confidence that the home you buy or sell has the most accurate price.
Determining property values depends more than ever on professional expertise and competence, the best use of technology, and approaching the pricing assignment from various perspectives. This certification helped me enhance my skills in pricing properties, creating CMAs, working with appraisers, and guiding clients through the anxieties and misperceptions they often have about home values. The Pricing Strategy Advisor Certification is awarded by the National Association of REALTORS®.
Denver buyers and sellers, give your search the e-PRO® advantage.
Social media is evolving every day so it is vital that REALTORS® embrace the new technology and online resources that have become an integral part of the home buying and selling process. Agents who earn the e-PRO certification are dedicated to making the most of today’s social media and technology to help consumers with their real estate needs by leveraging the power of technology to connect buyers and sellers.
