Alphabet soup - what the #@$% do all those real estate acronymns mean?!?!

Services for Real Estate Pros with Goomzee


Ever wonder what all those abbreviations mean behind a real estate professional’s signature?  We did too, which is why for the past year we have collected all designations and their definitions/criteria that have come across our radar.  We call this list “Alphabet Soup”.

The list below may be useful to you; if you find any designations we’re missing, please add a comment to this post with as much info as you can and we’ll keep on top of updating the content.  If you are re-posting this list, please give credit where credit is due and link back to Goomzee's Mobile Marketing Blog.

If people in the business don't know what they mean, you can be darn sure most of the public doesn't either. I'm all for education, but listing all that stuff on a badge means very little to our customers. When I was teaching high school art, my name tag at open house never said, Margo Currie, B.S., M.S.Ed, +45 credits... a little silly, don't you think? It's great to have the education, and great to share it with your customers (afterall, we want them to realize how very qualified we are) but no strings of "alphabet soup" needed on the badges.

I find it best to address any post licencsing education I have with my clients when we are face to face.
