November is Designation Awareness Month
November, known as Designation Awareness Month, is the perfect time to highlight the exceptional expertise our agents bring to the table. And speaking of exceptional, did you know that Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, recently claimed the #4 spot on Vacasa’s list of the best places to buy a vacation home in 2023? This recognition underscores the allure of coastal living in this stunning destination!
The Resort and Second Home Property Specialist (RSPS) certification is for REALTORS® who specialize in buying, selling, or management of properties for investment, development, retirement, or second-homes in resort, recreational, and/or vacation destinations. Our RSPS agents are well-equipped to assist you in your quest for the perfect resort or second-home!
The Value of a RSPS Certification
John Zacharias, based in our Ocean View office, attests to the significance of the RSPS certification: “NAR®’s RSPS certification is pivotal in my business. The course provides extra skills I can use to serve my clients and give them a leg up in decision-making and risk analysis when purchasing in a luxury market. Predominately selling second-homes in a resort area, an agent needs to give their clients their best knowledge in buying and selling in a different market from where they are coming from.”
Kara Brasure, stationed in our Rehoboth Beach office, adds, “I have had my RSPS certificate for several years now. I am a life-long resident of southern Delaware. I grew up in Rehoboth and enjoy working in Rehoboth. NAR® gives us monthly newsletters and marketing materials for having the RSPS certification.”
Extensive local knowledge and a commitment to ongoing education make our RSPS agents stand out. Jamie Coleman, from our Rehoboth Beach office, underscores this: “As an agent who works and lives in the Delaware beach market, I specialize in buying and selling properties for investment, retirement, and second-homes. Obtaining my RSPS certification was a natural next step in my career. It not only showcases my knowledge of our local market, but it also demonstrates my strong commitment to continuously educating myself. I believe this is necessary to best serve my clients and help them achieve their real estate goals!”
