Home Selling Video and REALTOR® Selection ~ Why Work With a CRS? A Certified Residential Specialist

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Preferred Home Brokers 00402040

When it comes to selling your home, how do you choose your next REALTOR®? That's a somewhat qualified question by adding the word "next" in your scenario, right?

Hopefully you had a great experience with your prior REALTOR®, and you've also heard from that REALTOR® on an ongoing basis and wouldn't consider anyone else. If that's the case, GREAT, if not consider working with a CRS = a Certified Residential Specialist that is...A REALTOR® who is also a CRS has the experience and education when it comes to working with home buyers and home sellers.


CRS LogoSo when you're looking for a great REALTOR® in your area, go to the CRS National directory at CRS.com to find to find a qualified, educated and experienced real estate professional in your own back yard. If you're looking for a personal CRS referral you can also contact me at Lynda@PreferredHomeBrokers.com, as a long-time REALTOR® for a personal referral, and check out my special home selling website at HomeSelling101.com for great home selling tips and videos!

My Company is Preferred Home Brokers and we've proudly served home buyers and sellers for decades.  As other companies may come and go over the years we're part of the communities we serve and have been for a very long time. We're also very grateful to our long-time clients, those we serve and their personal referrals which have been the life-blood of our business!

Hey John, Good hearing from you thanks...but 3:30, yikes!

Good to hear you're working towards your CRS designation...for me it's 3-fold. It's about the education first, then the referrals, both in-bound and and outbound, meaning I love it when I get an email or pick up the phone and someone says "I'm a CRS and I have someone moving your way". 

Then the is the other side. (equally important) when I have someone going though the process moving to a new location, I love the fact I can help with a personal referral.  Help with a professional on the other end of the move with the education and experience to assist them!

Lynda your video not only familiarize  consumers with the CRS designation, it also  highlights the experience and knowledge of those who have it.

Lynda  Your video really spells out the value of being a CRS and choosing one for representation.  When I became a member less than 1% of REALTORS held the designation - I think my membership number was 14  :)

Lynda I don't think there is another business like ours when it comes to making a selection on who to work with. In most other business the person will be selected based on the skillss, track record and production. In our business many times the determining factor has nothing to do with those things. People then wonder why they are not nappy with their agent!
