The MAAR Excellence (ME) Certification aims to promote a more professional, ethical and knowledgeable industry for new and seasoned REALTORS® alike. With members' needs in mind, the MAAR Education Foundation devised the program and tailored its courses to develop well-rounded REALTORS®. After obtaining the ME Certification, REALTORS® will be armed with the essentials to embark on a successful career in real estate.
The ME Certification is a new certification approved by the MAAR Board of Directors in 2020. After a successful period as a pilot program, which ended on Dec. 31, 2022, the certification is now open to all members.
The MAAR Excellence Certification will be offered to those new to MAAR at no additional cost for the first two (2) years of their membership. New members are strongly encouraged to complete the certification within this time period, as it is meant to provide a solid foundation while also preparing REALTORS® for the ins and outs of real estate.
To complete the ME Certification, members must complete the following courses:
Co-Op Like a Pro (1 Hour)
Real Estate Safety Matters (1 Hour)
Setting Up a Lifelong Business Plan (2 Hours)
The Rise of Cyber Crime (2 Hours)
Multiple Offers = Multiple Confusion (3 Hours)
