Buying or selling a home is one of life’s most crucial decisions. In what can be a confusing, overwhelming and sometimes difficult process, it pays to use a professionally trained, residential specialist to help you get the most out of your investment. Someone who understands the complexities of the Austin housing market, how to best position your interests, someone who will get to know you and what you want from the transaction, and someone who will tell you what you need to know, not what you want to hear.
A CRS Designation is Like Getting a PhD in Residential Real Estate
To address the specific residential needs of home buyers and sellers, the Residential Sales Council of the National Association of REALTORS® instituted a class of expert real estate professional: the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®). The CRS® designation is considered by many the “Ph.D.” of professional residential real estate credentials.
How Can an Austin CRS Agent Help Me?
CRS agents are an elite group of dedicated professionals who has met stringent education and experience requirements. Every CRS agent has completed one of the most successful residential real estate training programs in the country. Every CRS is a real estate professional equipped with uncommon expertise, thanks to rigorous advanced study and specialized training in listing, selling, negotiation, marketing, investment, financing, taxes and an especially strong focus on the applications of today’s cutting-edge technology to the real estate industry.
Only 340/10,500 REALTORS in the Austin Area are CRS Designees
That’s why only 3% of REALTORS® nationwide have earned the title: Certified Residential Specialists (CRS®). In fact, of the approximately 10,500 REALTORS in the Austin, TX metro area including Waco, Temple and San Marcos, only 340 agents have earned the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®) shield. What this means is when you work with a CRS, you’re working with someone more connected, more knowledgeable, and more experienced.
What Special Qualifications Does a CRS Bring to My Transaction?
