Just what does all that alphabet soup mean after a name?
A brief description of our designations:
REALTOR® - The term REALTOR® is a registered membership mark that identifies a real estate professional who is a member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® and subscribes to its strict code of ethics.
ABR - The Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR®) designation is the benchmark of excellence in buyer representation. This coveted designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Real Estate Buyers Agent Council (REBAC) of the National Association of REALTORS® who meet the specified educational and practical experience criteria.
An agent with the ABR designation provides a buyer the service and fidelity that sellers have always enjoyed. This means I help you analyze property locations, weighing pro's and con's of each listing. I complete CMA's on listings of interest, write contract, negotiate offers, arrange inspections and follow the title and loan process through to closing. Your interests are first and foremost.
GRI - The Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made a commitment to providing a superior level of professional services by earning the GRI designation. REALTORS® with the GRI designation are highly trained in many areas of real estate to better serve and protect their clients. GRIs are nationally recognized as top performers in the real estate industry and are dedicated to bringing their clients quality service.
New technology, laws, procedures and the increasing sophistication of buyers and sellers require real estate practitioners to perform at an ever-increasing level of professionalism. So it's more important than ever that you work with an agent who has a keen understanding of the real estate business. The GRI program has helped the best and the brightest in the industry achieve that level of understanding.
e-PRO - The Internet has added a new dimension to the real estate world. Now you can be assured that the REALTOR® you choose will have the knowledge and skills to put the power of the Internet behind your real estate transaction. REALTOR e-PRO® Internet Professionals maximize your ability to leverage the enormous power of the Internet when you are buying and selling property.
All REALTOR e-PRO® Internet Professionals are REALTORS® who completed a rigorous certification program endorsed by the prestigious NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR). Real estate agents and brokers who have earned REALTOR e-PRO® Certification are Internet Professionals who have completed extensive training using the Web. REALTOR e-PRO® Certification means the real estate professional is prepared to employ the latest techniques and services for your benefit, just like you've grown to expect from a professional.
