A few letters could mean more dollars in your pocket.

REALTORS® who pursue professional designations have a distinct competitive edge as a result of their increased expertise and marketability. In fact, those with a designation earned $21,800 more annually than non-designees, according to the 2010 NAR Member Profile survey data for median income.

With over 20 designations available through the National Association of REALTORS® and its affiliated Institutes, Societies and Councils where should you start?

If you plan to earn a designation please leave a comment and tell us which letters you’ll be adding to the end of your name!
