Local Realtor® Obtains e-PRO Certification
to Provide Consumers with State-of-the-Art Services
Dr. Ruth Miron-Schleider, broker/owner and managing director of Miron Properties, has successfully completed the e-PRO Technology Certification Program to become one of a select few real estate professionals to earn the prestigious certification offered by the National Association of Realtors.
As more and more consumers begin their search for real estate-related information on the Internet, it is critical that real estate professionals stay on top of the latest technology for the benefit of consumers and real estate practitioners alike. The e-PRO Technology Certification Program fills that need.
Realizing the importance of technology training, the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) created a comprehensive Technology Certification course in 2000. And now that course, e-PRO, has been completely updated to include information on Social Media and Web 2.0 aspects that is, and will continue, to change the real estate business.
“The real estate industry has undergone a fundamental change over the past five years,” Ruth Miron-Schleider said. “Today, more than 85% of all buyers and sellers begin their search online. As an e-PRO certified agent, I have the knowledge and tools needed to provide my clients with the information they need and the customer service they demand. It’s both hi-tech and hi-touch.”
The all-new e-PRO certification course — the only technology certification program offered by the National Association of Realtors– is designed to prepare real estate professionals to make the most of Internet technology and to identify, evaluate, and implement new Internet business models. The elite group of course graduates represents only four percent of all Realtors in the country, including Ruth Miron-Schleider of Miron Properties.
The e-PRO certification course is an educational program unlike any other professional certification or designation course available; it is both 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. The course is intended to help RealtorsÒ stay at the leading edge of technology and identify, evaluate and implement new Internet business models. Both the content and the delivery platform for the e-PRO program were created by the San Diego-based technology company, InternetCrusade®.
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-PROÒ through the exclusive e-PRO Internet Professional logo.
