Council of Residential Specialists Now Has One More Member

Certified Residential Specialist

Well, finally, after 8 years in the business I achieved the CRS designation.  I'm a big fan of education.  I enjoy taking classes.  When I first started out in real estate I had yearly goals as to the designation and certifications I would go after and how long it would take me to do it based on the designation requirements but also my CE requirements.  I started out getting the GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) and then followed that with the e-Pro, then I got my Broker's license, ABR, SFR, SRS & now the CRS. 

I know that these designations don't mean a whole lot to buyers and sellers, but they are an accomplishment to me.  I tend to need and appreciate verifiable and quantifiable achievements and these designations do that for me.   

So, hooray for me!

Good job Kasey. That is the same reason I became a broker. It was a personal challenge. Most people don't know the difference between broker and sales associate, but it makes me feel good.

Even if they don't know what they mean, if they compare you to an agent with no designations, they will probably call you first.

Thanks Praful!  Much appreciated.

Darrin, I forgot, I also got my broker license 2 years after I got my salesperson license.  Thanks for reminding me!

Congratulations Kasey! That is quite an accomplishment. Although the alphabet soup may not mean a lot to our clients, the commitment to education certainly does! I'm way behind you in acquiring my designations but have started to set goals now as well, SFR (check), ABR (next).

Thanks Andrea!  I do jus tlike taking the classes, and I feel like I get something out of it if I come out with a designation at the end :-)  Good luck on ABR!

I have similar feelings on designations.  I don't like to promote mine too much, seems a little silly to me, but I do take pride in what I've earned, and the designation classes are the most worth our time in my opinion.

Ben, I do have my designations in signatures and on my card, but I waffle back and forth on it all the time...I know clients don't have any idea what most of them mean, nor do they really care.
