Martha's Vineyard Real Estate Frequently Asked Questions

Not all realtors are REALTORS®.
What does it mean to be a REALTOR

The public has adopted the name "realtor" as a generic description for anyone who is engaged in the real estate sales profession. It's the same way we gave facial tissue a one-word name -- kleenex. However, not all real estate licensees are REALTORS®. The term REALTOR® is a registered collective membership trademark that identifies a real estate professional who is a sworn member of the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® (NAR) and subscribes to its strict Code of Ethics.

What is an ABR®?

ABR® is an acronym that stands for Accredited Buyer's Representative. ABR® is a designation earned through the completion of an extensive multifaceted classroom training program on buyer agency practices and procedures followed by written examinations. However, the designation is not awarded until the applicant is able to submit evidence of practical experience as a buyer's representative --- that means a number of transactions successfully closed representing the buyer's side. Learn more about Buyer Agency.

Why work with a CRS®?

The Residential Real Estate Council Certified Real Estate Specialist (CRS®) designation is indisputably the highest level of distinction any REALTOR® can achieve in residential real estate.

CRS® members have completed advanced training in residential real estate and have successfully completed the high volume of sales transactions required to earn the CRS® Designation. They excel in both experience and education; they are consummate professionals. There are less than 39,000 active CRS® designees nationwide with an average of 16 years full-time experience in residential real estate.

When interviewing a CRS® to assist you in the purchase or sale of real estate, you should expect an agent displaying the CRS® designation will be an experienced professional. Here is how you can find a CRS®.
