Absolutely. Designations such as GRI (Graduate of Realtors Institute), CDPE (Certified Distressed Property Expert), CRS (Certified Residential Specialist) and ePro show additional commitment and knowledge from an agent. Negotiating the complex workings of the market becomes even more involved in the current market. Having a professional’s knowledge of the market to help you through every aspect of the transaction-from financing to the purchase contract-is invaluable. A professional agent can assure you’ll sell as quickly as possible, and that you’ll get the best price for your home.
