Why Earn NAR Designations & Certifications?

In this dynamic market, continuing education is your best way to stay ahead of the competition.  Now more than ever, successful brokers must keep current on issues that involve technology, changing legalities, and many other central components of the business.

That's why the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) and its Institutes, Societies and Councils offer advanced designation and certification programs.  These programs not only help REALTORS® remain up-to-date but carry the official NAR endorsement.

What's more, REALTORS® who earned professional designations have a distinct, competitive edge as a result of their increased expertise and marketability.  For example, according to 2013 NAR survey data, the median income of REALTORS® without a designation was $33,600 and the median income of those with at least one designation was $61,100: a difference of $27,600.
