Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Preferred Properties

I have all these designation and none of them are making me any money.  It finally dawns on me that implementation is the key.  I have knowledge now to couple that with implementation is wisdom.  Now I have the newest designation CDPE, Certified Distress Properties Expert.  I know more about short sales and have a team of people who can help me navigate the many hurdles that exist in the process.  No more designations now it's time to put the information to the test.

Good luck and congratulations to you and for your recent realization.  Knowledge and degrees and designations mean diddly squat without application and using them to improve the lives of others.

Hello Veera,

Disignations are a great way to get recognition and stand out from your fellow professionals in the business. However; the general public hardly ever knows what any of these mean, but once explained it gives you some degree of credibility.

Good Luck to YOu,

I agree with Adell 100%.  Even if the public doesn't recognize it, if you are up against your competitors it gives you more leverage.  But it also makes you feel good inside on what you have accomplished in our industry and you show them that you have taken the time and money and reinvested back into your profession that you care so much about.  That is why the tenure of a Realtor is very short.  We all need to invest to make ourselves stronger, and with today's technology and all of the changes in the large quantity of venues out there, it is more important than ever.  Best wishes.
