St. Louis, MO, July 09, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Angie Ignatowski, one of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties owners, has recently earned the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional (MRP) certification.
The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) confers the MRP certification to Realtors who want to help military personnel and veterans find housing solutions that will best meet their needs and allow them to take full advantage of their military benefits.
Ignatowski received the certification while at the St. Louis Association of Realtors.
When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster, and less stressful. Realtors who earn this certification know how to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.
“We are very proud of Ignatowski and her accomplishment,” said Maryann Vitale Alles, President and CEO of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Select Properties. “Achieving this certification is not easy, but her hard work and dedication helped her reach her goals.”
The certification provides members with resources to accommodate current and former military service members at any stage of their military career. To earn the MRP certification, Realtors are required to be in good standing with NAR, complete a one-day MRP certification core course, complete pre-class readings to learn military background information and better understand important acronyms and military culture, and complete two webinars.
