Value of Realtor Designations - 04/21/08 09:19 PM
I'm enrolled in a GRI 300 class at the end of this month and will finally add a designation to my Realtor title. I say "finally", but I've only been a Realtor for 2 years.

I felt woefully unprepared (5 comments)

Quoting statistics from the National Association of Realtors and economic experts, the article suggests that the real estate market is in for a really bad year. National statistics may interest some, but I hear from most people that they'd like to know what is happening here...where they live and work.
