You may have noticed that some real estate agents have letters after their names. Ever wonder what they mean? Are they secret codes? Are they of any importance to you as a buyer or seller?
Those letters are credentials and they signify a commitment to professional development. Each group of letters represents a designation. Earning a designation requires completion of comprehensive training along with proven practical experience in specific areas of the real estate business. And yes, those letters are important to you. They mean getting superior service from someone who has gone the extra mile to achieve a higher level of proficiency in their profession.
Next time a real estate professional hands you their business card, ask them about that “alphabet soup” following their name.
