REALTORS attaining the President Sales Club award are among an elite group within the Ohio real estate profession. Realtors awarded are among the top 10% of Ohio's real estate professionals.

A Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) is a REALTOR® who has completed advanced professional training and demonstrated outstanding professional achievement in residential real estate. CRS agents are among the top 3 percent of all real estate agents in the U.S. They have more experience, education and training than the average REALTOR® and are members of a community of agents dedicated to improving the real estate industry for homebuyers and sellers everywhere.

To become a CRS, REALTORS® must meet a number of stringent requirements that combine advanced hours of education and training, experience and demonstrated success in the marketplace. A CRS REALTOR® can make the difference between a positive, successful home buying or selling experience and one that is fraught with problems.

Certified Residential Specialists:

  • have proven experience through logged transactions
  • advanced training above and beyond what is required of typical agents
  • continuously improve their skills and stay ahead of market conditions, trends and new regulatory developments
  • have focused expertise on home buying and selling
  • offer a national network of support
  • adhere to an ethics code required by the National Association of REALTORS®
  • are leaders in their communities

Buying a home is no small matter. Besides being the largest financial transaction you may ever undertake, it’s probably also the most complex. There are many good reasons to work with a qualified real estate professional—especially a trained professional who has earned the Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation, representing best-in-class buyer services.

When you look for an ABR® before you look for a home, you’ll be served, not sold. Your interests become their interests. And you’ll be working with someone who has gone the extra mile by completing specialized training in delivering the best in buyer-representation services. Plus, a REALTOR® who has an ABR® designation also has an established track record, with proven experience in representing the concerns of homebuyers.

The ABR® designation is awarded through the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council, or REBAC, which was founded in 1988 to promote superior buyer-representation skills and services. REBAC is an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
