Hiring me as your Texas REALTOR means you’ve retained someone who is committed to continuing education, professionalism, and integrity. In addition to upholding the strict REALTO® Code of Ethics, many Texas REALTORS® (like me) hold one or more professional designations—those letters behind our names indicating advanced or specialized training in real estate.
Here are just a few of the various designations I hold as a REALTOR®, and what they could mean for you:
Graduate REALTOR Institute (GRI)
The GRI designation is a mark of distinction that earns REALTORS respect and confidence from their peers and the general public, demonstrating their commitment to advancing their knowledge in many aspects of the real estate profession.
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS)
Residential salespeople who hold the CRS designation specialize in listing properties, selling, and investing, as well as mortgage financing and computer applications.
Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR)
A buyer’s agent represents the buyer in a real estate transaction, just as a seller’s agent is hired to obtain the price and sale terms sought by the seller. The ABR is the only nationally recognized designation for buyer’s agents.
The e-PRO certification is the real estate industry’s first comprehensive technology certification endorsed by the National Association of REALTORS.
