November is Designation Awareness Month

Did you know REALTORS® who earned professional designations have a distinct, competitive edge as a result of their increased expertise and marketability?  Based on 2013 NAR survey data, the median income of REALTORS® without a designation was $33,500 and the median income of those with at least one designation was $61,100 …Quite a difference!

To help you enhance your professional skills and stay ahead of the competition, we can offer a wide array of educational resources and encourage members to start or complete an officially-endorsed designation or certification throughout the month of November.  We just hosted a fantastic ABR [Accredited Buyer’s Representative] designation program. We’re thinking about an ePro [Internet Professional] certification program or a CRS [Certified Residential Specialist] or SRES [Senior Real Estate Specialist] designation live event.    Do you have a special interest or suggestion?
