November is Designation Awareness Month

By Mike Caesar
Education Coordinator

Celebrate November as Realtor® Designation Awareness Month by starting or completing the courses necessary to earn an official Realtor® designation.

Earning a designation from the National Association of Realtors® (NAR) or one of NAR’s affiliates, councils or societies can help you succeed in all aspects of your business — and help you earn more money. According to the 2010 NAR Member Profile survey, Realtors® with professional designations make $21,800 more per year on average than Realtors® without designations.
