|Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®)
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®) training gives you in-depth knowledge about business planning, making listing presentations, negotiating and closing smoother transactions, working in the buyers’ and sellers’ best interest and building a referral business.
Once you have completed the rigorous educational and production requirements to earn the CRS® Designation, you have many resources at your fingertips:
- strong referral network of more than 45,000 CRS® members;
- timely and timeless news and information found in the bimonthly magazine, The Residential Specialist;
- and networking opportunities locally through CRS® Chapters and nationally at events such as Sell-a-brations®, the Council’s annual educational conference, and National Committee Meetings held twice yearly.
While there are intensive education and experience required; it pays dividends. You’ll be in elite company as less than 4 percent of all licensed REALTORS® are Certified Residential Specialists. It also means a higher income as the typical CRS® designee earns an average income of $85,000 nearly three times that of a REALTOR® who is a typical sales agent.
