REALTOR, SRS, CMHS, ASP
With the Texas real estate market advertising the extreme growth many people have decided to "jump in" to real estate for extra money. For this reason an extreme amount of Houston area Realtors® are completely new and inexperienced. My experience began in the early 1990's and encompasses a
multitude of areas within the Real Estate industry and a few other areas that correlate with my real estate repertoire. I graduated Alvin Community College training as a Professional Residential Home Inspector and was immediately deployed to work as a FEMA contracted Catastrophe Inspector in Louisiana for a few years. I am continually training to keep up with regularly changing trends, rules, marketing techniques, regulations and laws that will affect every decision you make. My most recent training was Licensing as an All Lines Claims Adjuster for the state of Texas. Pending are Florida, Louisiana and Oklahoma.
Details of my industry experience
The Social Media Pro (SMP) designation covers the social media skills that are a huge part of the tool-set successful REALTORS should use in their marketing efforts. This designation covers all platforms of social media and how to use it effectively to promote a seller's listings and business.
The Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) designation is the premier credential in seller representation. It is designed to elevate professional standards and enhance personal performance.
The Certified Military Home Specialist (CMHS) gives Real Estate Professionals the training to be equipped to handle with excellence the home purchase needs of active duty and former military clients. This is a way to honor and become a “watchdog” for the men and women of the United States military and their families, for their service to our nation, and to fulfill the obligation we have to each and every one of these heroes for the freedoms we enjoy.
The Short Sale & Foreclosure Resource (SFR®) certification teaches real estate professionals to work with distressed sellers and the finance, tax, and legal professionals who can help them, qualify sellers for short sales, develop a short sale package, negotiate with lenders, safeguard your commission, limit risk, and protect buyers.
Accredited Staging Professional (ASP). According to ASP®, the Accredited Staging Professional training organization, citing a report by The International Association of Home Staging Professionals®, staged homes sell for an average of 17 percent higher price. Even in today’s market there are many professionals that still do not understand the importance of staging properties for sale. Home Staging is your number one marketing tool. It makes the photos look fantastic for the MLS and internet which in turn will make the phone ring. You will receive more showings and it will help to get your home sold faster and for top dollar.
