What is a Certified Residential Specialist?

by Carol Wolfe

When it’s time to hire an expert we look for certain credentials to verify a level of expertise.  For a professor it might be a PhD, for a surgeon it would be board certification.  In real estate the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest designation awarded to sales associates in the residential sales field. The CRS distinction is bestowed on professional realtors to acknowledge accomplishments in both experience and education.

In 1977 the Council of Residential Specialists began conferring the prestigious CRS Designation; agents who receive this designation must meet specific stringent requirements.
Agents who take CRS training receive in-depth knowledge about marketing, negotiating, business planning, creating smooth closing transactions and satisfying clients needs whether they are buyers or sellers.

When looking for a professional to assist you in buying or selling your home, make sure to give yourself the best possible experience, choose a realtor who is a Certified Residential Specialist.
