Become a true real estate resource

“Agents usually focus on short-term, ‘one-and-done’ lead generation. Instead, if you focus on creating a name for yourself in a particular niche, you will yield ongoing leads.” –Sep Niakan, Owner & Broker, HB Roswell Realty

Set your price and get paid

A carefully crafted business plan, including a payment plan, is crucial for success. Holding a RAP designation demonstrates your expertise in rental services so you can create and stick to a payment plan.
