ADAM TARR - ABR, e-PRO  Adam Tarr

thumb The Graduate, REALTOR® Institute (GRI) symbol is the mark of a real estate professional who has made the commitment to provide a high level of professional services by securing a strong educational foundation.

Buying property is a complex and stressful task. In fact, it's often the biggest single investment you will make in your lifetime. At the same time, real estate transactions have become increasingly complicated.

New technology, laws, procedures and the increasing sophistication of buyers and sellers requires real estate practitioners to perform at an ever-increasing level of professionalism.

GRI designees:

  • Have pursued a course of study that represents the minimum common body of knowledge for progressive real estate professionals.

  • Are recognized nationally.

RSPS logoIntroduced in January 2006, the Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS) Certification is a nationally-recognized certification awarded by the National Association of REALTORS® to real estate professionals who wish to demonstrate and promote – to consumers and their peers alike – their expertise in the varied specialty.
 

 Just about every market contains second-home properties, not just obvious resort areas. In addition to classic vacation homes, the niche also includes college housing and properties for investment purposes. 

“The RSPS certification program allows agents to show they have specialized skills and knowledge to maximize the business opportunities in resort and second-home markets. The RSPS Certification lets everyone know I'm serious about lifestyle real estate.

 
thumb The Master of Real Estate Society (MRES) is an Exclusive Membership Society. It was created to recognize members’ continuous educational accomplishments and to provide consumers acknowledgement of the agent's commitment to the real estate industry and  career.



thumbThe purchase of a home can be a very emotional experience. There are multiple parties, conflicting interests, and a myriad of issues that make a simple negotiation complex. In choosing your real estate professional, there is one factor to consider above all others: how well can your real estate professional negotiate on your behalf?

You set the terms and conditions for your agent to achieve. It is then up to your agent to use all of his/her negotiating strategies to persuade the other side to accept your terms. Therefore, you need to be certain that your agent has the skills to effectively persuade and influence the other party.
