“The thing I love most about real estate is helping people through an important, often exciting, and undoubtedly stressful process. Second only to that, I love the continued challenges and educational opportunities it provides. The CRS designation is not only based on your personal production as a real estate broker, it involves many hours spent furthering your education. It’s an opportunity to set myself apart from other brokers while continuing to learn and grow as a professional – something I will continue as long as I am in business,” said Cronck.
