Who Needs All Those Letters?

 

Who Needs All Those Letters?

 

 Recently there was a  question asking if the designations after a real estate agent's name meant anything to the general public.

   Those designations are not for impressing the public. Most have no idea what they stand for.

I love learning in all kinds of forms. It could be reading blog posts, webinars, real estate articles, going to a class or meeting with other real estate professionals.

Every transaction, every closing, every inspection, every appraisal...all give me the opportunity to learn more about selling real estate.

When there is an opportunity to take a class that gives CE credit and/or a designation, I am all for getting involved.

I will even call another REALTOR® and ask if they want to take the same class. I did that recently with CNE.

The general public probably does not know what any of those letters stand for. That does not matter.

 

Do it for yourself. Do it for the knowledge. Do it to make yourself a better Realtor®. Do it early in your career before you get too busy. Do it to meet and network with other agents who you may work with. The bonus is getting the letters that makeup alphabet soup.

 

Back in 2006, I wrote about alphabet soup those letters behind my name. 

My plan is to continue to learn and if I find another course of interest that gives a designation, I will add more letters.
