Any licensed REALTOR® who wishes to earn the SRS designation must complete specialized training and other experiential requirements. We offer both a classroom and online course to accommodate learning preferences and schedules.

The first step in earning the SRS Designation is to complete the Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) Designation Course. 

Once our office has received the student roster from the course provider/sponsoring organization, please allow up to 10 business days for processing.  You will then receive an email from our office with the application and instructions on how to complete the designation requirements (outlined below).  CLICK HERE to access a PDF copy immediately.

SRS Designation Requirements:

(Effective July 1, 2017)


All requirements must be completed within two (2) years of taking the SRS Course or the applicant must re-take the Course.  Only REALTORS® who meet all of these requirements and have been officially awarded the SRS designation are permitted to call themselves an SRS and use the SRS credential, emblem and/or logo.

  1. Successful completion of the Seller Representative Specialist (SRS) Designation Course.  
  2. Successful completion of one SRS elective course.
    • The elective course may be taken prior to completing the SRS Designation Course.

  3. Verification of three (3) completed transactions in which you acted as a seller representative (one may be a lease).  These transactions can be from any time and any or all may be as part of your role on a team.  We only require your broker to confirm (through a signed form provided once you complete the course) that you closed the three transactions and acted as a seller representative.
  4. Maintain active membership status as an SRS and with the National Association of REALTORS®.  Exception:  international members of SRS do not have to be members of NAR.
