Rob Rogers of Zephyr Real Estate Earns CRB Designation
Posted by Melody Foster-Brown — April 26, 2011
The Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers, the professional organization for brokerage management affiliated with the National Association of REALTORS®, confers the CRB designation. The Council is dedicated to providing quality professional development programs, products and services that continually enhance the management productivity and profitability of its more than 7,000 members.
The CRB Designation is recognized throughout the industry as the highest level of professional achievement-a symbol of excellence in brokerage management. The most successful brokerages are owned or managed by professionals having the coveted CRB Designation. Zephyr Real Estate is the only real estate brokerage in San Francisco whose partners/sales managers have all earned their CRB.
The Council awards the CRB Designation to those individuals who successfully complete the requirements and demonstrate excellence in real estate brokerage management. Candidates must complete academic and professional courses covering such topics as finance, marketing, training, recruiting, and strategic planning.
During his 20 years in the real estate industry, Rogers has successfully negotiated nearly 1,000 transactions, earning Top Producer status year after year and designation by RealtorMag.com as one of the top 300 agents in the country. He brings many varied experiences and in-depth market expertise to his role as Sales Manager of the Upper Market and Castro offices, a position he accepted in 2008.
"Rob is an invaluable part of our management team, and this newest achievement comes as no surprise," said Randall Kostick, Chief Operating Officer of Zephyr. "His leadership and business acumen greatly contribute to the overall success of our company, our agents, and the satisfaction of our clients."
