Why Use a Certified Residential Specialist?                  


The Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation is recognized industry-wide as the symbol of excellence in residential sales and is the highest designation awarded in the residential real estate sales industry.

The most successful real estate agents are those professionals having the coveted CRS designation.

The CRS designation singles an individual out as a leader in the industry. It confers upon that individual the highest level of professional achievement and recognition as the most experienced and educated in the specialized field of residential sales.

Less than 5% of all REALTORS in the U.S. have been awarded the CRS designation.

How can a CRS help me?

Every CRS has undergone a rigorous, specialized course of detailed training aimed at making residential transactions as smooth and worry free as possible
