REALTOR® Success Academy
The REALTOR® SUCCESS ACADEMY is SPAAR’s professional development path for Better Agents. This path has been developed to guide a member through four distinct programs that build upon each other to help shape the future success of each REALTOR® by giving them an understanding of their purpose and value in the real estate industry.
Commitment To Excellence
The C2EX endorsement identifies a REALTOR® as a well-rounded professional with exceptional customer service. These SPAAR Members have earned their Commitment to Excellence endorsement.
