Why Earn Official NAR Designations and Certifications?
In today's quickly changing real estate business, continuing education is the best way to stay ahead of the competition. Successful agents need to keep current on issues, technology, changing legalities, and other aspects of real estate to keep pace. Designation and certification courses offer this knowledge, and many of the courses can also be applied to Continuing Education (CE) requirements .
