Local Agent Earns REALTOR
e-PRO® Certification

3-1-2007 – Karla Roebuck of Greenridge Realty Oakmont & Associates, Inc. has successfully completed the REALTOR e-PRO® course to become one of a select few real estate professionals to earn the prestigious certification offered through the National Association of REALTORS.®

The REALTOR e-PRO® certification course is an educational program unlike any other professional certification or designation course available, comprehensive and interactive. It is specifically designed to provide real estate professionals with the technology tools needed to assist consumers in the purchase or sale of a home.

With more than 70% of consumers beginning their real estate research on the Internet, e-PRO® certified agents have the experience and expertise to meet the demands of today’s buyer and seller.

The real estate industry has undergone a fundamental change over the past several years. A majority of consumers are taking the time to conduct their own research prior to contacting an agent. In turn, real estate professionals must be knowledgeable of how technology can assist them in serving the needs of the buying and selling public.

The exclusive REALTOR e-PRO® certification course is presented entirely online and certifies real estate agents and brokers as Internet professionals. Because of its innovative design, students are able to complete the course at their own pace, when and where they want, via any Internet connection. The course is designed to help REALTORS® stay at the leading edge of technology and identify, evaluate and implement new Internet business models.

Once completed, the e-PRO® certified real estate professional joins the ranks of a special community of highly skilled and continuously trained professionals who provide high quality and innovative online-based real estate services.  Consumers can identify the e-PRO® through the exclusive e-PRO® Internet Professional logo.

No matter what you may have heard, the internet is NOT an experienced or licensed real estate professional. The internet cannot negotiate, consult, advise, assess, or take into consideration local customs and market conditions. Most importantly, the internet cannot care about your individual needs and goals. Although it is an incredible source of information, the internet does not have the ability to interpret or filter the information to suit your needs. Please contact me for an accurate personalized interpretation of any data you’re seeing online.
