Why should you want to have a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) working for you?
The CRS designation is a symbol of excellence in residential real estate. A Realtor holding the CRS designation has completed many requirements of experience, levels of sales and education, and has more tools available to provide a higher level of service than the average realtor.
Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is the highest credential awarded to residential sales agents.
Yet it costs no more to hire the best and most experienced and well-educated CRS Realtors. And it may save you money in your purchase or make you more money in your sale, due to the higher skill level of a CRS.
Annually, Certified Residential Specialists earn more than triple the income of the average REALTOR®, and CRSs complete nearly twice as many transactions each year. CRS Designees are more successful than the average REALTOR®.
Out of more than 1 million REALTORS® in the U.S., less than 4% can call themselves Certified Residential Specialists. That’s because just one in 20 has the extensive experience, the unique commitment and the hours of advanced training necessary to call themselves a Certified Residential Specialist.
Al LaPeter not only has been a CRS for more than 35 years—he was part of the team that developed the coursework and standards required to obtain CRS designation when this designation was first created in the 1970’s, when he and a small group of other leading Realtors saw the necessity of creating higher standards for the real estate community. He then taught these courses around the country, while also maintaining and expanding his own brokerage. If you want a Realtor who has unmatchable experience as a CRS in Tucson, you want to call AL LaPeter.
