For Immediate Release Virginia Varela, Hoboken REALTOR® Obtains e-PRO Certification To Provide Consumers with State-of-the-Art Services Contact: Virginia Varela, Tel: (551) 358-8375 E-mail: Virginia@VirginiaVarela.com
Monday, July 27, 2009 - As more and more consumers begin their search for real estate-related information on the Internet, it is critical that real estate professionals stay on top of the latest technology for the benefit of con mers and real estate practitioners alike. The e-PRO Technology Certification Program fills that need.
Realizing the importance of technology training, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) created a comprehensive Technology Certification course in 2000. And now that course, e-PRO , has been completely updated to include information on Social Media and Web 2.0 aspects that is, and will continue, to change the real estate business.
"The real estate industry has undergone a fundamental change over the past five years," Virginia Varela said. "Today, more than 85% of all buyers and sellers begin their search online. As an e-PRO certified specialist with over 15 years in on-line marketing, web and graphic design, I have the unique knowledge and skills needed to provide my clients with the information they need and the customer service they demand."
The all new e-PRO certification course -- the only technology certification program offered by NAR -- is designed to prepare real estate professionals to make the most of Internet technology and to identify, evaluate, and imp ment new Internet business models. The elite group of course graduates represents only four percent of all REALTORS in the country including Virginia Varela.
The e-PRO certification course is an educational program unlike any other professional certification or designation course available, comprehensive and interactive. It is specifically designed to provide real estate professionals with the technology tools needed to assist consumers in the purchase or sale of a home.
The exclusive e-PRO certification course is presented entirely online and certifies real estate agents and brokers as Internet professionals. The course is designed to help REALTORS stay at the leading edge of technology and identify, evaluate and implement new Internet business models.
Once completed, the e-PRO certified real estate professional joins the ranks of a special community of highly skilled and continuously trained professionals who provide high quality and innovative online-based real estate services. Consumers can identify the e-PRO through the exclusive e-PRO Internet Professional logo.
Both the content and the delivery platform were created by the San Diego-based technology company InternetCrusade®. Graduates use the skills they've acquired to provide clients information on properties for sale, lo communities, and the local real estate market.
