CRS - Certified Residential Specialist

Ethics
To earn the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation, every Realtor® must have significant experience and demonstrate volume of real estate transactions or gross sales, as well as complete rigorous educational requirements.

Focus on Home Buying and Selling
Every CRS designee is required to maintain membership in the National Association of Realtors® and to abide by its strict Code of Ethics.

Technology Expertise
The training available to CRS designees includes a strong focus on technology and its applications in the real estate business.

The Top 4 Percent
Only 4 percent of all licensed Realtors® are Certified Residential Specialists.

Median Income Much Higher*
The typical CRS designee earns an average income of $113,102 nearly three times that of a Realtor® who is a typical sales agent. On average, CRS designees each closed 45 transactions in a 12-month period.
