Centennial, CO, June 09, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Chris Pollinger, President of Parent Relocation Council, Inc. announced today that REALTORS® Robert and Jani Bielenberg of Bielenberg & Associates, Metro Brokers, have completed the final steps of certification; and have gained a coveted seat as a PRC Council Members™.
Operating in Southern California since 1988, Parent Relocation Council, Inc. (PRC) was officially incorporated in 1999 and in February 2004 launched Parent Relocation Council, the first consumer-driven organization dedicated to helping consumers avoid tragic and heartbreaking real estate transaction disasters by offering a way to separate Experienced REALTORS® from the inexperienced real estate agents by an outside 3rd party who validates professionals based on stringent approval requirements. PRC has now grown to help consumers on a daily basis across all 50 states.
Stephen O’Hara, CEO, developed the guidelines for membership in response to the growing and diverse needs of families seeking reliable, up-to-date and easy to use local school and community information as well as the alarming increase of consumer outcry about being burned by an inexperienced or negligent agent. “Perhaps our biggest achievement is helping people understand how to hire a real estate agent and what value the REALTOR® should bring to the transaction. When you understand that all real estate agents ‘sound the same’ to the consumer, you realize there’s a need to help consumers hire a professional and experienced REALTOR®,” said O’Hara.
O’Hara continued, “I’ve always been consumer driven. Over the years, we’ve talked with thousands of ‘moms and dads’. We understand what they want to know about when they hire a REALTOR® - and it isn’t who is Number One, what kind of car they drive, how much money they make or how many diamonds they wear. I realized many years ago that buying and selling a home is probably the most stressful business transaction most people experience in their life. And, because they don’t do it every day, they tend to get overwhelmed with the tons of information available; they need a lot of help sorting it out. I became their ‘silent family member’ who they could depend on to make their impending move less scary and more comfortable.”
O'Hara attributes his own success to his empathy for the needs of families buying and selling real estate, insight into what information families really needed to help them feel settled after moving to an unfamiliar area, and his extensive industry experience, dating back to 1976.
Today, Parent Relocation Council’s flagship website, is used by families worldwide for moving tips, to find school statistics, community information and to identify a certified professional REALTOR® that specializes and lives in the community. Experienced REALTORS® across the nation are eager to be chosen as an exclusive PRC Council Member™ for the local communities in which they serve because they share the Consumer Centric culture of PRC; they like how having the endorsement of PRC can help consumers distinguish them from less experienced agents.
“The scrutiny is tough,” said Robert and Jani. “When virtually every agent is claiming to be #1, the consumer must be confused. I don’t have to talk about myself; after they verify my credentials, PRC does that for me. That allows me the freedom to focus on what is most important – the needs of my clients.”
To ensure that REALTORS® who apply to become PRC Council Members™ provide an unprecedented level of service, the REALTOR® must satisfy stringent, qualifying criteria before they can be seated on the elite Council. “Families can feel confident that REALTORS® chosen by PRC® will take care of them in the most professional and caring manner. Only the most accomplished and credentialed REALTORS® are accepted for Council Membership,” said O’Hara.
Said Pollinger, “We are delighted to welcome Robert and Jani Bielenberg, as PRC Council Members™.” He continued, “We know the community will benefit greatly through the unique partnership between Robert and Jani Bielenberg, and the Parent Relocation Council®. The Bielenbergs will provide buyers and sellers with high quality, reliable information and outstanding service whether they are moving across the nation or across the street.”
Robert has been a licensee since 1982 and Jani received her license in 1990. They have numerous recommendations from past clients, their peers and place well within the top percentages of the industry in both reputation and productivity. To contact Robert and Jani Bielenberg call 303-770-1977.
