Do you have any designations or certifications? For an all around certification, look for the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS). Most CRS’s have demonstrated more than 10 years experience and performance and have completed a significant amount of classroom work. Nationally less than 3% of all Realtors are a CRS. The number is even lower for Sedona AZ Realtors. Another designation that you’ll want your real estate agent to have is the Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR).

Nationally, less than 4% of all Realtors are ABR’s. Susan and I have both designations.
