Alfredda Smith-Odato of RE/MAX Earns RSPS Certification

Sarasota, Florida Associate Receives Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist Certification

Sarasota, Florida (I-Newswire) July 25, 2012 - Alfredda Smith-Odato of RE/MAX Alliance Group has earned the Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS) Certification. The nationally recognized certification is awarded by the National Association of Realtors to real estate professionals who wish to demonstrate and promote - to consumers and their peers alike - their expertise in the varied specialty.

Smith-Odato is a Broker/Associate in the RE/MAX Alliance Group University Parkway Office. Continually striving to serve clients knowledgeably and professionally, she holds numerous certifications and designations including Certified International Property Specialist (CIPS), At Home With Diversity (AHWD), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), Real Estate Owned Specialist (REOS), Transnational Referral Certification (TRC) and Graduate, Realtor Institute (GRI).

According to an NAR survey, more than 140,000 Realtors currently work in resort area and second-home markets. Just about every market contains second-home properties, not just obvious resort areas. In addition to classic vacation homes, the niche also includes college housing and properties for investment purposes.

The RSPS program focuses on developing the knowledge and skill base that real estate professionals need to specialize in buying, selling, or managing second homes in a resort, recreational, and/or vacation destination and properties for investment, development, or retirement.

In order to achieve the RSPS Certification, Realtors complete two core courses. They must also complete two electives or hold the ABR, CIPS, CPM or CRS designations. More about the program is available at
