How do you become one of the top real estate agents? In my opinion you have to keep learning through education and experience. All of my wonderful customers from first time home buyers to those of you selling your house help me continue to gain experience every day, and I never stop working on the education part.
To that end, I have earned the Commitment to Excellence endorsement from the National Association of Realtors.
The endorsement goes to Realtors who have demonstrated knowledge and competency in 10 core areas of real estate practice:
1. Client Services
2. Professional Reputation
3. Real Estate Law
4. Realtor Code of Ethics
5. Equal Service to All
6. Advocacy of Real Property Ownership
7. Trust and Integrity
8. Use of Technology
9. Data Privacy
10. Areas of Practice
The C2EX endorsement is available only to REALTORS®. It is earned through a self-directed program that enables users to assess and build on their competency in each of the core areas. Launched in November 2018, this innovative program sets the standard for what it means to be a professional in the real estate brokerage business.
“Earning the Commitment to Excellence endorsement is a true accomplishment and an affirmation to consumers that you stand for ethics and professionalism in your work,” says 2019 NAR President John Smaby. “Advances in technology and online user experience are making our business more and more seamless, and that’s fantastic,” Smaby says, “But with new technology can come vulnerabilities. A C2EX endorsement offers consumers the ease of mind that they have a skilled adviser, committed to conducting business at the highest standards, helping them through what may be the largest purchase or sale in their life.”
The National Association of REALTORS® is America’s largest trade association, representing over 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.
