Now more than ever, successful brokers and their agents must keep current on issues, evolving technology, changing legalities, and many other central components of the business to keep pace in today’s dynamic real estate market. This is why the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) offers a series of designation and certification programs designed to help busy REALTORS® stay ahead of the curve, maintain ethical practices, and manage profitable businesses that are built to last.
In addition, REALTORS® who earn professional designations have a distinct, competitive edge as a result of their increased expertise and marketability. Based on recent NAR survey data, the median income of REALTORS® without a designation was $33,500 and the median income of those with at least one designation was $61,100; a difference of $27,600.
