Less Than 5 out of Every 100 Real Estate Licensees Are Certified Residential Specialists


By using a CRS® (Certified Residential Specialist) you are assured your real estate agent is one of the most experienced and highly trained in the business.

In fact, out of all real estate licensees nationwide, less than 5% have received the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist designation.

When it comes to buying or selling a home, you can rely on a CRS—and that makes you a better buyer or seller.

Another mark of distinction is the coveted designation of GRI®
(Graduate, Realtors Institute). Graduates are recognized nationwide for competence and expertise.

One of only a few holding the coveted Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS) designation
