Part of the New Hampshire Association of REALTORS strategic plan is to offer NAR designation courses to our members. Each year, the Professional Development Committee determines which course or courses will be implemented. In 2017, roughly 100 REALTORS earned their NAR Green Designation, including the 40 pictured at right, who took the two-day course in October with instructor Craig Foley.
The designation courses offered in 2018 will include the Certified Real Estate Brokerage Manager (CRB) course and Senior Real Estate Specialist (SRES) course. Click on the course title below to learn more, or the call-out boxes at bottom to register.
As a real estate professional, you know this industry is in a state of constant evolution and change. As a result, it has become even more important to state ahead of the information and knowledge curve and strengthen your ability to sustain your business and remain competitive. Ready to achieve a new level of professional growth and recognition? The CRB Designation is designed to elevate professional standards, enhance individual and office performance, and designate real estate professionals who demonstrate the knowledge essential to the practice of brokerage management. NOTE: You do not need a broker's license to earn the CRB designation.
The SRES Council trains REALTORS to meet the special needs of maturing Americans when selling, buying, relocating, or refinancing residential or investment properties. The Council tracks senior-specific lifestyle and housing issues and educates REALTORS who are making 50-plus clients a part of their overall business plan. By earning the SRES designation, REALTORS are prepared to approach mature clientele with the best options and information for them to make life-changing decisions.
“Amidst the sea of change to which the New Hampshire Association of Realtors has played witness in its 85 years, one thing that has remained constant is the Realtor 'R' and the value we bring to every real estate transaction in which we take part. We are part of a unique community where our familial cooperation transcends our business competition. These are not mere platitudes, but our living ideals, and they are, in fact, the foundation on which we conduct ourselves in our day-to-day affairs.”
