You are still a CRS! Residential Real Estate Council is the new name for what was previously the Council of Residential Specialists. The name of the Council has changed but the name of the CRS Designation has not.
Example: “The Residential Real Estate Council headquarters is located in Chicago, IL.”
CRS refers only to the designation and stands for Certified Residential Specialist.
Example: “10 years into my real estate career, I earned my CRS Designation.”
As a designee, you are a member of the Residential Real Estate Council (RRC), which awards the CRS Designation.
Example: “I love attending local RRC events. It’s a great way to meet other CRSs.”
Local events are hosted by the State RRCs for agents that have earned the CRS Designation and RRC members who are CRS candidates who have yet to earn the designation.
Example: “I’ve been a RRC local leader for six months.”
