As you can see, Marsha believes strongly in continuing education in one's chosen field and that Realtors who take the time to get educated & certified in areas of real estate beyond what is mandatory is not only a plus for you, but essential in today's world, if you are going to provide superior service in handling one of life's most important events--buying & selling property. It is a statistical fact that Realtors who earn even just 1 or 2 of these designations comprise only 4% of the National Association of Realtors and are the ones who complete the most transactions, and the more designations earned, that percentage becomes even smaller.
