Texas REALTOR vs Real Estate Agent

Hiring a Realtor means you’ve retained someone who is committed to upholding the strict REALTOR Code of Ethics, continuing education, professionalism, and integrity. Many Realtors (like me) hold one or more professional designations-those letters behind our names indicating advanced or specialized training in real estate.

Here are the designations and certifications I hold as a Texas Realtor and what they could mean
for you. Tiffany Chance, REALTOR, GRI, ABR, SRS, SFR, SRES

Graduate Realtor InstituteThe Graduate REALTOR® Institute (GRI) designation indicates to buyers, sellers and other real estate industry professionals that you have made the commitment to provide a high level of professional service to your clients by securing a strong educational foundation. The GRI designation is obtained by attending a specific, intensive series of courses that total 90 hours of classroom instruction. The subject matter has been chosen to educate practitioners about local, state and national real estate practices that affect them and their clients. In today’s competitive business environment you need more than just motivation and initiative to succeed, you need the advantage of the education you receive in the GRI program.


Seller Represenative SpecialistThe Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) is the premiere seller agency designation, conferred by the SRS Council, recognizing real estate professionals who have completed special education in seller representation.


Accredited Buyer RepresenativeThe Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR) designation from the Real Estate Buyer’s Agent Council helps prepare real estate professionals to represent buyer clients in residential real estate transactions and provide the quality of service and degree of fidelity to buyers that sellers have customarily enjoyed. It also offers ideas and methods for building a buyer representation business and tools for conducting buyer counseling sessions.


Short Sale & Foreclosure ResourceYour Real Estate Agents ability to close short sales and foreclosures (SFR) depends in part on your confidence in seeing these transactions through. Designed for real estate professionals at all experience levels, the Short Sales and Foreclosure Resource certification gives your real estate agent the framework for understanding how these deals work.


Senior Real Estate SpecialistThe Seniors Real Estate Specialist (SRES) designation trains REALTORS® to ethically and profitably serve the real estate needs of clients over the age of 50. Designees learn about the lifestyle needs of maturing clients as well as services to offer them while earning their trust and respect. They explore ways to address key concerns facing today’s mature client population and help maturing clients take positive action in estate.
The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) developed the e-PRO® certification program to teach members how to effectively use the most advanced real estate technology to provide exceptional service. Your REALTOR® will take the lead in your market with the many benefits the e-PRO® certification offers.
