Mad about real estate

The Real Estate Agent Alphabet

Alphabet Letters after a person’s name seem to

bestow some kind of special prestige. PHD, MD,

ESQ are common… but just look at what is

available to real estate sales people…

ABR, ABRM, ALC, CCIM, CIPS, CPM, ARM, AMO, CRB, CRS, CRE,

GAA, GRI, RCE, RAA, SIOR, AHWD ePRO, CAM, CBR, C-CREC,

CLHMS, CREA, CRIA, QSC and SRES designations.

Can anyone, anywhere explain just exactly what those 26

acronyms mean and what the qualifications are to earn the

use each of them? And if you can … WHY?

Some of those designations have extensive requirements,

including several days or even a full week in a classroom

setting, a written examination, a certain number of years

in the business and evidence of having closed a required

number of transactions in the specialty.

And then there’s the real estate equivalent of The Skull &

Bones… the CRE designation. Only 1,000 people hold it,

the qualifications are secret, and membership is by invitation

only. Yipes… are they licensed to kill?

Oh yes, let’s not forget the QSC designation. That one

requires a live or online course, a 40-question multiple

choice quiz, a signed commitment to quality statement

and participation in a perpetual customer survey

program that costs $50 for every 20 surveys.

RE/MAX International has a designation for RE/MAX sales

agents. This one is the “internationally recognized

CNHS designation.” Translated that stands for

“Certified New Home Specialist.”

Since its international you can sell homes in Transylvania

where you don’t have to disclose that the previous owner

was a vampire?

The Women’s Council of Realtors awards the LTG designation.

Please excuse me, but I can’t figure that one out since I

have just been stricken with a severe case of dyslexia

What I really want is an agent who can find a buyer and

properly fill out a purchase agreement. No alphabet

required.

How about just finding and assigning properties

without cash, credit or much risk? Sounds good?
