Not all real estate agents are made equal. Some pass their multiple-choice exams and call it a day, while others dedicate their careers to bettering the industry, developing their skills, and continuing to educate themselves to adapt to new regulations, technologies, and market conditions.
The Quinte Living™️ team with RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. pride ourselves on providing the highest quality of service to our clients in the Quinte area. If you’re buying or selling real estate in the Bay of Quinte region, we have specialized training and expertise to help you get a great outcome with your real estate goals.
Here are some of the credentials held by real estate agents on the Quinte Living™️ team:
ABR (Accredited Buyer’s Representative)
The Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) designation indicates specialized education and training to work with and represent home buyers at every stage of the home-buying journey. Agents with the ABR® designation have a proven track record of excellence in buyer representation, always advocating for the needs, concerns, and best interests of their buyer clients throughout the buying process.
SRS (Seller Representative Specialist)
Awarded by the Real Estate Business Institute (REBI), the Sellers Representative Specialist (SRS) designation is the premier credential in real estate seller representation. If the ABR® designation is one side of a coin, the SRS credential is the other. Agents with the SRS designation are educated and trained to a high professional standard of ethical and effective service to their seller clients, ensuring that sellers receive exceptional representation every step of the way.
SRES® (Seniors Real Estate Specialist)
The SRES® designation is for agents that are trained to address the specific needs of clients aged 50+ through their real estate journeys. Seniors’ homes are their largest asset, and as such, senior clients require unique considerations. The SRES® credential indicates an empathetic agent with specialized skills, knowledge, and understanding.
AEA (Accredited Elite Advocate)
An Accredited Elite Advocate has training with an emphasis on fiduciary duty, which is the legal responsibility to act solely in the best interest of another party. The AEA designation indicates an agent who has a legal obligation to maintain the trust of their clients through honest and transparent service. Clients who work with an AEA credentialed agent can expect caring, loyal, and good-faith service.
CLHMS (Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™)
The Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™ (CLHMS™) designation assures that an agent has the knowledge, competence, and confidence to represent affluent clients in the purchase and sale of luxury homes. CLHMS™ credentialed agents are trained to serve the specialized wants and needs of clients within the upper tiers of financial resources, ensuring exceptionally comprehensive and professional representation.
Agents with membership in the GUILD™ are not only CLHMS™ certified but have successfully closed at least two transactions within a 24-month period in the million-dollar and above residential real estate market. GUILD™ membership verifies a track record of success within the luxury home market for an added layer of client confidence in their agent’s ability to get the right deal done.
While credentials indicate specialized knowledge and skillsets, their true value is in showcasing an agent’s drive to continually improve their ability to offer clients the best possible service throughout their real estate journeys. Those journeys begin long before any deals are signed and continue beyond the exchange of house keys, which is why the Quinte Living™️ team with RE/MAX Quinte Ltd. take pride in client relationships that last for years.
