I am proud to be a full-time a real estate professional and a long-time volunteer leader at the Austin Board of Realtors®, and I am proud to announce now that I have earned the Commitment to Excellence endorsement from the National Association of Realtors®.  The endorsement goes to Realtors® who have demonstrated knowledge and competency in 10 core areas of real estate practice:

  1. Client service
  2. Professional reputation
  3. Real estate law
  4. Realtor® Code of Ethics
  5. Equal service to all (Article 10 of the Code)
  6. Advocacy of real property ownership
  7. Trust and integrity
  8. Use of technology
  9. Data privacy
  10. Areas of practice

The C2EX endorsement is available only to members of the National Association of Realtors® and is earned through a self-directed program that enables users to assess and build on their competency in each of the core areas.  Launched in November 2018, this innovative program sets the standard for what it means to be a professional in the real estate brokerage business.  It begins with a series of knowledge/skill assessments in each of the ten competencies and then moves through a customized course of study and action aimed at ongoing growth in all areas.

“Earning the Commitment to Excellence endorsement is a true accomplishment and an affirmation to consumers that you stand for ethics and professionalism in your work,” says 2019 NAR President John Smaby.  “Advances in technology and online user experience are making our business more and more seamless, and that’s fantastic,” Smaby says.  “But with new technology can come vulnerabilities.  A C2EX endorsement offers consumers the ease of mind that they have a skilled adviser, committed to conducting business at the highest standards, helping them through what may be the largest purchase or sale in their life.”

The National Association of Realtors® is America’s largest trade association, representing over 1.3 million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.  The Austin Board of Realtors is the largest professional trade association in Central Texas, with about 13,000 members.  You can see more about my commitment to the real estate industry and to my local and state associations and their members at Your Professional Choice.

Let me know if I can answer any questions about this ongoing commitment to professionalism, or if I can be of service to you or your friends or family members.
