This designation is available only to members of the local, state and National Association of REALTORS®.
CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) – This designation is considered the "master's degree of real estate." Every CRS Designee must have a proven track record in the business, as well as advanced education in related areas like finance, technology and marketing. The training available to CRS Designees includes a strong focus on technology and its applications in the real estate business. A CRS designation is awarded by the Residential Sales Council.
e-Pro – The e-Pro designation is a new certification first offered in 2000 by the National Association of REALTORS®.

AHS (Accredited Home-Staging Specialist) - Real estate professionals are expert facilitators of the real estate transaction – from beginning to end. Those agents that have earned the AHS Designation recognize the impact that staging can have on the sale of a home and have prepared themselves to provide that value added service for their clients. Who better to work through the issues of staging with you than the one that is assuming responsibility for the marketing of your home? Equipped with the knowledge and skills to ensure that your home is fully prepared to show itself in the best possible light, the AHS real estate professional will ensure you have an edge on the market.
