Just one in 20 REALTORS® has the experience, the commitment and the advanced training necessary to call themselves a Certified Residential Specialist. But despite that added expertise, a Certified Residential Specialist doesn't cost more than any other REALTOR®. In fact, the additional know-how you tap into may actually save you time and money when you're buying a home, or help increase your profits when you're selling one.
