The Residential Real Estate Council (RRC) was established in 1976 to provide real estate brokers and agents with shared knowledge and tools. Recognizing the need for advanced education, the council developed training courses and established the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) designation.
The council is recognized as the leading provider of real estate education and networking for residential real estate agents, and the CRS designation is considered the most prestigious designation a real estate agent can achieve.
Mission: To train and empower ethical, efficient, and successful real estate professionals.
Vision: To be the premier education, business and networking resource to REALTORS and international real estate professionals.
Join the Best of the Best! As a member of the Residential Real Estate Council, with more than 29,000 strong, you are immediately connected to a professional network of top producers, best-in-class education, networking, valuable referrals and more.
When you earn your CRS designation, you gain the credentials and advanced professional knowledge that commands the trust and attention of your clients and peers. You also join ranks with the most accomplished agents and brokers in the United States, setting yourself on the path and investment of lifelong learning and professional development.
Paths to Success
All paths lead to the CRS designation. Depending on your years of experience, and the production level (volume of transactions) that you can demonstrate, you may qualify for the CRS designation through either of our two current programs: the 60/30/30 Program or the Pro Program.

We are hoping that you are all staying healthy and safe during this unprecedented time in history.

We still want you to be able to see the value that the CRS designation offers through education and networking.
On June 17, we will have a Zoom meeting featuring the dynamic Chief Economist and Senior Vice President of Stewart Title Ted C. Jones, Ph. D. from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. We also have more education, speakers and virtual networking happy hours coming throughout the summer months.
