There is much more to neighborhood knowledge than just knowing the latest sales statistics.
A Certified Neighborhood Specialist (CNS) knows the neighborhoods they specialize in intimately. A Certified Neighborhood Specialist knows how to uncover neighborhood specifics and has the skills to find the hidden details that can lead to finding a better property or marketing your home to the most likely consumers. A CNS has the ability to locate valuable information on demographics such as income, education and neighborhoods with children or even a neighborhood with a higher percentage of single people.
A Certified Neighborhood Specialist is not just another real estate agent or Realtor®. By attending the CNS real estate course and submitting the required research reports, a Certified Neighborhood Specialist has shown their desire, knowledge and proven their ability to research neighborhood information and pass that information onto you, their customers.
