Why pursue a broker’s license?

The exam to become a broker is lengthy and requires in-depth knowledge about real estate. It is undoubtedly more difficult than the exam needed to become a real estate agent. So, why did Krissy Many pursue this achievement?  Her answer in a word is “Knowledge.”
She goes on to explain, “Covid-19 brought many changes and uncertainties. I felt this was the perfect time to expand my knowledge and increase my education by pursuing a broker license.  Although I prefer an “in classroom” experience, I had no choice but to attend class “online.”.  The additional 45 hours of training took more commitment and determination on my part in the virtual learning method. However, it was important to me and it made me carve out time to dedicate to obtaining this goal of mine.    This achievement was a personal goal I had set for myself when I became a full-time realtor in 2015. As a top producer, ranking in the top 10 the last few years, I felt it was my responsibility to always be learning and improving my craft to better serve my clients.  So, knowledge and experience are the benefits that I will be able to offer my clients.  I never considered myself a salesperson, but identified more as a consultant.  This new achievement was a natural progression in my business.  I love what I do and I look forward to helping families and investors achieve their real estate goals.
Krissy also has the following designations:
  • Commercial & Investment Real Estate (CIREC) Certification’
  • Military Relocation Professional (MRP) Certification; and
  • Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) Certification
