[Alameda, March 5, 2010]  Steve Sorensen, Broker Associate with Harbor Bay Realty, has been awarded the prestigious Certified Residential 1276664476Specialist (CRS) Designation by the Council of Residential Specialists, the largest not-for-profit affiliate of the National Association of Realtors®.

Realtors® who receive the CRS Designation have completed advanced professional training and demonstrated outstanding professional achievement in residential real estate.  Less than four percent of Realtors® nationwide have earned the credential.

Home buyers and sellers can be assured that CRS Designees subscribe to the strict Realtor® code of ethics, have been trained to use the latest tactics and technologies, and are specialists in helping clients maximize profits and minimize costs when buying or selling a home.


Sorensen also holds the e-PRO designation which assists him in maximizing the use of online research and website tools

Sorensen is a member of the Alameda Association of Realtors; and served as a director in 2008-2009, as well as in previous years.  He is a director of the Baywood Village Homeowners Association, and served on the 2009 City of Alameda Fiscal Sustainability Committee.

“Earning the CRS designation signifies my commitment to my profession by using my experience and education to best represent my clients,” said Sorensen.  “The CRS training is focused on the real world, giving me distinct advantages over non-designees when it comes to navigating the complicated framework of a real estate transaction. The CRS network also gives me a reliable referral base for my clients relocating out of the area.”

Dennis Pagones, Harbor Bay Realty President, commended Sorensen for this significant achievement.  “Steve’s CRS designation will enhance the service he provides his clients, “said Pagones.  “We are proud to have him with us at Harbor Bay Realty.”
