Directory Advertising

The Council offers access to an extensive network of the best residential REALTORS® in the country, along with plenty of opportunities to find, connect with and refer to these REALTORS®. CRS Designees receive a complimentary listing in the Print Referral Directory as well as the online Find a CRS directory.

Designees can increase the exposure their listings receive through advertising opportunities in these directories, along with the Referral Marketplace listings inside The Residential Specialist magazine.

Print Referral Directory

The Council offers Designees the opportunity to bring more visibility to their listings by purchasing listings in additional cities, adding a photo to their listings or turning their listings into an attractive display ad.

The 2017 Print Referral Directory is now closed. The order period for the 2018 Print Referral Directory begins in May 2018.

Option A: Purchase additional city listings

Each CRS Designee is provided with one complimentary listing in the city where his/her office is located, but you may purchase additional city listings.

Option B: Add a photo

Increase your opportunity to be noticed – add a photo to your primary city listing.

Option C: Choose from three display ad layouts

The most effective way to increase your visibility in the Print Referral Directory is through a personalized display ad.
