About Listing Agent and CRS

Why do I need a CRS residential expert when listing my home to sell in Atlanta, Alpharetta, Sandy Springs, Roswell, Dunwoody, Duluth, Peachtree Corners, Norcross, East Cobb, Cumming or Lake Lanier?

Buying or selling a home is one of the most crucial financial transactions of your life. In what can be a confusing and sometimes difficult process, it pays to leave as little to chance as you can. But with the help of a professional, you can navigate unknown territory with ease.   That is easy to do when you are an experienced agent that has the knowledge that will move you through  negotiations, and the experience to get the deal closed!  Isn't that what is all about?  Ellen Crawford and her team has that experience!

To fill the specific residential needs of home buyer and sellers, the Residential Sales Council of the National Association of REALTORS® instituted a class of expert real estate professional: the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®).

How can a CRS help me?

Ellen Crawford CRS has undergone a rigorous, specialized course of detailed training aimed at making residential transactions as smooth and worry free as possible!

As a  CRS, Ellen  brings special qualifications to your needs:

Membership in a local Board, State Association, and the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR.) Every CRS is part of a much larger network of real estate professionals. Successful completion of the courses leading to the Certified Residential Specialist designation, one of the most successful residential real estate education programs in the country. Every CRS is a real estate professional equipped with special expertise, thanks to advanced study in listing, selling, investment, tax and more. A history of demonstrated sales performance through the documented execution of residential sales transactions. REALTORS® must conform to the NAR® code of ethics.

What this means is that when you work with a CRS, you're working with someone who is more knowledgeable, and experienced.

What if my needs are special?

If anything about your transaction is special, seek out a specialist. A Certified Residential Specialist designation, offered through NAR, denotes an agent who specializes in residential real estate. It's as simple as that. Only 3% of all REALTORS® and REALTOR ASSOCIATES® have earned the right to be called a CRS. Less than 5% have developed special residential sales skills and enhanced their residential sales knowledge through study, dedication and experience. A CRS can help you optimize your transaction by identifying better prospects, clarifying investment potential and helping you to understand the tax ramifications of your real estate transaction. It all adds up to one thing: better service.  

What special qualifications does a CRS bring to my transaction?  

  • Your trust in a CRS is well earned thanks to these distinctive credentials:
  • A professional designation of residential specialty, the highest in the country.
  • A higher level of education in residential sales.
  • Affiliation with thousands of real estate professionals on the local and national levels.
  • Up-to-the-minute industry information.
  • Local market knowledge and special residential expertise unique to your area. 

The CRS designation: our badge of expertise and your shield of assurance. Look for the CRS Shield  when considering your next residential transaction. Put your trust in the best. Get the job done right with the help of a Certified Residential Specialist
