C_REPS Designation

C_REPS

Certified Real Estate Pricing Specialist

C_REPS – Certified Real Estate Pricing Specialist is a designation earned and maintained by members of NABPOP. Members of NAPBOP who pass the stringent BPO Certification test earn the C_REPS designation. The NABPOP BPO training course teaches proper pricing and valuation techniques as well as how to evaluate and analyze real estate markets to ensure a high level of valuation and pricing accuracy.

C_REPS are the most qualified Agents and Brokers to perform residential pricing and valuations.

C_REPS are as accurate as Appraisers
C_REPS know Real Estate Buyers and Sellers

Agent going over BPOAs part of their daily job, C_REPS interact with and know the mindset of homebuyers (and sellers) in their market. In any market, buyers set the price – what a buyer is willing and able to pay is really where the rubber meets the road. Buyers put their money where their mouth is. Knowing what buyers are willing to pay is paramount to accurate valuation and pricing (in any market). Very similar to a stockbroker acting as a market maker on the trading floor of the stock market, Real Estate Agents and Brokers are the market makers on the trading floor of the Real Estate industry. Nobody is closer to Real Estate buyers and sellers than Agents and Brokers.

Not only do C_REPS know the home buyer and seller mindsets, C_REPS are also trained and tested on proper valuation/pricing techniques and procedures in addition to analyzing real estate markets.

A C_REPS represents the cross between the accuracy and science of an appraisal and the art and knowledge of a Real Estate Agent and Broker.

Teamwork

The C_REPS network has a vast amount of knowledge and experience, both Real Estate in general as well as pricing and valuation.

In addition to completing the BPO training course and passing the BPO Certification test, C_REPS participate in the collective body of knowledge – as a team.  The C_REPS participation system leverages the knowledge and experience of the network individually and harnesses it for the overall good for all C_REPS to access. Gold StandardThe collective body of knowledge is based on continuous ongoing improvement, so the body of knowledge continues to evolve with the industry and real estate markets. This is instrumental in NAPBOP’s BPO Certification being the gold standard in the valuation industry.

More than just an Agent or Broker

Unfortunately, there are too many “fly by night” agents in real estate – here today, gone tomorrow. A “fly by night” agent is not going to be interested in joining a professional trade organization and the rigors of the BPO training course or trying to pass the stringent BPO Certification Test.

A C_REPS is the embodiment of a serious Agent or Broker. Don’t trust any valuation or price opinion to just any real estate agent. It’s good business sense to insist on a C_REPS to perform your pricing and valuation work.

Real Estate pricing is an Apex skill and not just any agent has the knowledge and ability to do it accurately with proper procedures and techniques.
