Betty Grubb of Betty S. Grubb Realty of Salisbury recently completed the National Association of Realtors’ e-PRO certification course.
The course, the only technology certification program offered by the association, 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 real estate industry has undergone a fundamental change over the past several years,” Grubb said. “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.”
