 Invest in your Professional Development -

According to NAR - “Realtors who earn professional designations have a distinct competitive edge as a result of their increased expertise and marketability.  Based on 2013 NAR survey data, the median income of Realtors without a designation was $33,500 and the median income of those with a least one designation was $61,100: a difference of $27,600.”
