Realtor Designations to Benefit Our Clients

Did you ever think that a designation designed for a Realtor would/could benefit a buyer client? When I first started in real estate 20 years ago, I was determined to be the BEST Realtor that I could be. I proceeded to take every designation that was made available to me (or most of them at least!), and whereas the GRI (Graduate Realtor Institute) designation involved obtaining various other designations first, and it was a lengthy process.

GRI: Graduate REALTOR® Institute

“The Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation. ”

However, I was so proud when I obtained that GRI pin! The second year I was in real estate, I decided to obtain my Associate Broker’s designation, and did it! Another milestone, and another great moment knowing that I am endeavoring to learn as much as I possibly can to better aid my customers and clients alike in their purchasing and selling process.

In today’s world, with it currently being a seller’s market with regards to the low inventory, while it is still very important to be a good seller’s agent (I have those designations, also – CRS, CDPE, SRES), I am also an Accredited Buyer’s Representative ( The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation is for real estate buyer’s agents who focus on working directly with buyer-clients at every stage of the home-buying process. and a Certified Buyer’s Representative).

I also obtained the Certified Buyer’s Representative designation .

CBR: Certified Buyer Representative

“Focus on the ‘forgotten’ side of the transaction! Obtain the skills necessary to effectively represent home buyers with a Certified Buyer Representative designation; the CBR designation enables consumers to identify real estate buyer agents who can provide value with a proven level of education and expertise. CBR® was the first registered mark to be used identifying real estate buyer agents; since its inception, the course has continued to meet the requirements for instructional excellence and has a proven track record of success. *Non-NAR Designation – “

I sincerely believe that we owe it to our customers and clients alike to offer them the best in services and by taking the time to obtain these designations then they can only better help us service everyone better!.

By the way, did you know the following?

Our Fiduciary Responsibilities include as agents to our clients are Obedience, Loyalty, Disclosure, Confidentiality, Accountability and Reasonable Care.

On a funnier note, I was so keen on obtaining my designations that I had trouble when it came time to having a name tag made. My office informed me that I could only have 3 designations shown. NO!!!!! Yikes! I spent so much time and hard work to obtain them, and so I begged and was granted permission . Funny! As you can probably guess, I am now hesitating about obtaining more designations as there is no room!

I am here for all of your real estate requirements! Cheers!

Westchester is great!
