If you are a veteran or are currently in the military, it is imperative to work with someone who is qualified to represent you, your family and your needs throughout this very important time of transition.
How do you know if they are qualified?
One way to know if a real estate agent is qualified to work with you is by looking at their certifications and designations.

What the CNE Means to Me
Throughout my career, IÂ (William True)Â have been dedicated to continuing my education. I definitely know that continuing my education makes me a better buyer's agent and provider for my clients. So, in order to learn even more, I have recently taken and passed the Â â€œCNEâ€
CNE stands for Certified Negotiation Expert. In the course, we were taught how to present offers and counter offers, understand primary interests and how to successfully navigate potential financial pitfalls â€” along with other important aspects of the negotiation process. This course provided my classmates and I with the knowledge of how to provide our clients with the best price possible for any property. Â
Most importantly, the title of â€œCNEâ€ showcases my ability to negotiate both ethically and effectively for my buyer's benefit.
I am happy to say that I am now even more confident that I can provide my buyers with the best experience possible!
Florida Realtors for Organ Donation Awareness
This may seem like an unlikely topic, but it is very important to me and other real estate agents, especially in Florida.
TheÂ Florida Realtors Leadership Academy Class of 2013Â has decided to supportÂ Donate Life Florida, a non-profit organization that is â€œdedicated to motivating Floridians to designate themselves as organ, tissue and eye donorsâ€¦â€ Thousands of individuals are waiting for an organ donor who will never come. You could not only save one of those livesâ€”but 8!
Did you know that every 10 minutes, another name is added to the national organ transplant waiting list? Tragically, 18 of those individuals die every day because they did not get the life-saving donation they needed. YOU can save 8 of those lives by simply signing up today.
Make sure you support and stay up-to-date with information about this cause by â€œlikingâ€ theÂ Florida Realtors for Organ Awareness Facebook Page. It will only take a second and it helps to spread the word about this great organization.
Also, donâ€™t forget to visit theÂ Donate Life Florida website. Sign up today to become someoneâ€™s superhero.
