Colorado Group Realty Announces Broker Achievement
Posted by Laurie Peter — November 5, 2010
Joy Rasmussen, Broker/Owner of Colorado Group Realty has successfully completed the REALTOR e-PRO course to become one of a select few real estate professionals to earn the prestigious certification offered through the National Association of REALTORS.®
The REALTOR e-PRO® certification course is a comprehensive and interactive educational program. It’s specifically designed to provide real estate professionals with the technology tools needed to assist consumers in the purchase or sale of a home.
“The real estate industry has undergone a fundamental change over the past several years,” said Joy Rasmussen, Broker/Owner of Colorado Group Realty. “In today’s information superhighway, people love to research the internet prior to contacting an agent. This trend involves both social networking and interactive web searches. They’re immersed in Facebook, Linked In, Twitter, Realtor.com, looking for testimonials online, and using Trulia and every Blog site available to them to get true, real life stories on the excitement of buying or selling a home. I found that in order to stay on top of my game, I wanted to be recognized as an expert in these areas.”
The exclusive REALTOR e-PRO® certification course certifies real estate agents and brokers as Internet professionals. The course is designed to help REALTORS® be on the leading edge of technology and identify, evaluate and implement new Internet business models.
Once completed, the e-PRO certified real estate professional joins the ranks of a special community of highly skilled and continuously trained professionals who provide high quality and innovative online-based real estate services. Consumers can identify the e-PRO through the exclusive e-PRO Internet Professional logo.
