Joining Three Percent of all Realtors, Barry Hoey earns internationally recognized designation for performance in residential real estate.

Naples, Florida | September 8, 2019 — Barry Hoey with the Hoey Team โ˜˜ brokered by eXp Realty LLC in Southwest Florida recently earned the Residential Real Estate Council’s CRS (Certified Residential Specialist®) designation in recognition of experience, knowledge, and expertise in residential real estate.  Hoey joins an exclusive group of real estate professionals; only 3% of all Realtors, who have completed the Council’s training and have a proven performance in the residential real estate market while achieving the additional qualifying requirements can earn and use this designation.

“I am excited to be recognized, and to have more access to the best available training, tools and systems to better help all of our Sellers and Buyers as we strive to provide superior service in our everchanging marketplace; with the RRC and CRS additional resources we are truly Your Real Estate Concierge,” said Hoey.

What is the difference between a REALTOR® and a real estate agent?

All real estate licensees are not the same. Only real estate licensees who are members of the National Association of REALTORS® can call themselves REALTORS®. That means that we have met certain requirements for membership and subscribe to a strict code of ethics. We are also expected to maintain a higher level of knowledge to assist our clients in buying or selling a home


I’m a Certified Residential Specialist®.   What does it mean for you?

As a Certified Residential Specialist, I am also a member of the Residential Real Estate Council and have earned my designation by completing advanced real estate training. I have a certain level of experience in the business. I also have a proven track record of excellence to save you time and money when you are buying a home and increase your profit when selling one, no matter the market!

These days, it seems like we can do everything online and without much outside assistance.  I know you can all go to Google and type in “Buying a home” and come up with hundreds of pages of content.

However, buying a home is a big step with a lot of complex and overlooked little steps along the way.

Working with a REALTOR® and a Certified Residential Specialist can make this process much easier—decreasing your stress and helping you find the right home, in the right neighborhood, at the right price.

The top 5 reasons to work with a REALTOR® and a CRS like me are:

I know the ins and outs of home buying and selling.  I can give you real-time personal insight and advice that you can’t get anywhere else; with our results continually speaking for themselves for both sellers and buyers in all price-ranges.

I hear about listings right when they come on the market – in fact, sometimes even before they’re on the market; Kim and I are very much in tune with the heartbeat of each local marketplace and community.

We know our market. I keep my eye on the trends in neighborhoods and know which ones will be a good fit for you.

I can help you find the most suitable financing and refer you to high quality resources and service providers.  We are full service; from beginning to end, and beyond.

Kim and I work on your behalf to make sure that we dot every I and cross every T, and make sure that you find the perfect home for you and your family.
