    True to a point. The problem with your analogy is “finding” a real estate professional. Most markets have a handful out of thousands of licensees. Most customers, especially first timers have no idea that advertising your services as a licensed Realtor doesn’t equate with knowing anything more than they do about real estate. After 27 years as a real estate I’ve finally had enough of this charade promoted by NAR. I’m tired of hearing from people how they discovered that their Realtor wasn’t worth a warm glass of spit “after” the commission was already paid. Five to thirty years before another opportunity to work for these customers might arise. I wonder if they’ll remember me then? I doubt it. But they’ll never forget the bad agent they worked with last time.

    What Carl says is true and the industry is blind, deaf and dumb to this fact.  We brush it aside, wash it away and otherwise bamboozle the public with a load of hype. But this is why the general public think of us as nothing more than an “unfortunate necessity.”  But NAR gets rich over all the fees, brokerages are addicted to stuffing their offices with warm bodies – so I don’t see it changing any time soon.

    The NAR designations are simply a way to help agents market themselves to the public. And perhaps stand out amongst peers. It’s a marketing tool…it’s basic sales.  Surely, some of the information taught is helpful and the knowledge gained through classroom/webinar training will benefit the client. A professional designation is a great tool to use to marketing oneself to a niche market but it doesn’t guarantee someone is an expert. Just about all other professions use designations within their industries.
