What is the CRS Designation?

CABOR and its YPN are hosting 3 – days of CRS Designation classes on November 19 – 21, 2013.

You may be asking yourself, ‘What is a CRS Designation?’ REALTORS® with a CRS designation are Certified Residential Specialists.

They are a part of a powerful coast to coast network of associates linked together by 3 little letters – CRS – that sum up the education, integrity, and success its members have attained and can achieve.

Did you know?

  • Less than 3% of all licensed REALTORS® are Certified Residential Specialists
  • CRS designation is THE Symbol of Excellence
  • In 2012, CRS Designees earned an average of $90,000 annually…that’s 3 TIMES the average REALTOR® earnings!

    Does every agent need to take all 3 days of classes for the CRS Designation?

  2. CABOR says:

    Hi, Tricia. There are different tracks to the designation. For example, some agents may qualify for the Pro-Program. Agents that qualify only need to take one 2-day course.

    To qualify for the CRS Pro-Program, REALTORS® must meet the following criteria:
    * Be licensed in real estate for a minimum of 10 years;
    * Be a member of the Council of Residential Specialists, and maintain active REALTOR® or REALTOR ASSOCIATE® membership in their local board or state association;
    * Provide proof of one of the following: 150 sales transactions in their 10-year career; or an average of $1 million per year of experience with a minimum of 40 transactions (e.g., $15 million in sales for 15 years of service).
    * Complete two units of core course credit from the CRS education program.
