Broker, CRS, GRI, SRES, e-PRO What do all these initials mean to you? It means that I have taken the time to get advanced education and training in real estate, so that I can better represent you when it comes to selling or buying a home, and better negotiate on your behalf, getting the best possible terms and condiitions. As a Broker, I have advanced my education to be capable of managing a real estate business. And why does that matter? Two Things: First, it is a business and you want a professional to represent you in this very important transaction. After all, you likely have an accountant, financial adviser and perhaps even a lawyer that you can call with those specific issues – why would real estate be less important? Secondly, I understand the value of truly representing your best interest. The agent that is only working from one deal to the next isn't focusing on your real estate needs. You want the agent that represents you to be in this business, current and up to date on the legal issues, the financing issues and the market trends.
