Dear RE Professional,

If you’re a real estate agent, broker or owner of a real estate company, and are looking to sell a listing faster, to get an edge when going after new business, or to improve your marketing… I would like to show you how the Certified Neighborhood Specialist (CNS) designation course can separate you from other agents and allow you to earn more money simply by tapping into wealth of in-depth neighborhood expertise.

Hi, my name is Allen Wright and I am Senior Vice President of The RealtyU Group and the lead developer of the CNS designation course.  Realty U is the leading career development company in the real estate industry… and we do something very unique in our industry in that we have created a specific designation course to develop the neighborhood expertise that every agent needs in order to prosper in today’s real estate market.  A marketplace much different then it was 2-5 years ago.

Gone are the days when you only had to sell the benefits of the house…now buyers have tons of choice and sellers are looking for only the most qualified agent to list their house.  According to recent survey done by the National Association of REALTORS®, both buyers and sellers rank neighborhood knowledge as one of the leading qualifications when selecting a real estate agent.  But how do you get the neighborhood information you need?

This is the only course available that guides real estate agents step-by-step on how to become the most knowledgeable, trusted, and most referred real estate agent in any neighborhood.

How To Generate More Business Now!

The CNS course offers agents a step-by-step easy to follow process for generating significantly more neighborhood awareness and name recognition.  We not only give you the strategy, but also explain it and provide the exact steps on how to implement it fast.  Showing you how to use neighborhood information to your advantage.

Here is a list of the methods we give you for generating more business in any neighborhood. 

  • Develop a “storyline” for your neighborhood and then have unshakable confidence to sell someone on the benefits of the area.  All from gathering key neighborhood data before any presentations.
  • Neighborhood Showcase – plays to people’s vanity…neighbor only open house.
  • Staged Mailings – use neighborhood turnover to save money on marketing.
  • Neighborhood Magnet – not your traditional magnet marketing idea.
  • Sales Statistic Update – Improve awareness by updating the neighborhood with recent sales.  Keeps your name in front of them and plays off of other agent’s success.
  • Marketing to Renters – How to identify renters in your neighborhood and then systematically turn them into buyers or a nice pool of referrals.  It also covers how to market to the absentee owner and gather information about them.
  • Marketing to Generations – If you know the age of the people moving into the neighborhood or the people who live in the neighborhood…You’ll know how to focus your marketing better.  This is an area that most agents overlook, but is thoroughly explained in the CNS course.
  • Neighborhood Info Resource Webpage with examples and turnkey templates. Now become the “ultimate” resource for any neighborhood and generate more referrals automatically.  We’ll teach you which 6 areas of information homeowners find valuable and you should give them resources for.
  • And much, much more...

Why Do CNS Agents Generate More Business?

Most agents only do the traditional farming like canvassing, door hangers, garage sales, and mailing.  These methods work, but not as well as they did in past.  The 2 biggest problems most agents have today is following a consistent plan in selecting the best overall area farm.  If you’re marketing is inconsistent or you select an area with low turnover ratio…how can you be successful?

The CNS course gives you a powerful plan of attack, but also the tools to make sure you are farming the best area.  This all starts with good neighborhood information.

So How Does the CNS Course Give You Clear Expertise Over Other Agents?

The CNS course and designation gives agents a clear level of expertise over any other agent because your neighborhood expertise will allow you to confidently say, “This is a good neighborhood because…”

You’ll have the in-depth neighborhood information to…
  • Develop selling points far beyond just the house.
  • Advertise your neighborhood expertise to the community.
  • Develop a comprehensive resource webpage for your neighborhood.
  • Know about the area and issues associated with it.
  • Issues with the building process or developer.
  • HOA processes, restrictions, and by-laws.
  • Current problems or issues in the area.
  • And much, much more!

Show your clear expertise by creating a “storyline” (2-3 minute in-depth narrative) about the history of the community, its important selling points, overview of the schools, important developments and other unique features of the neighborhood.  This not only demonstrates your knowledge, but differentiates you from most other agents.  All based from knowing in-depth neighborhood information.

Once you learn how to develop a powerful “storyline” for a neighborhood, no other agent will be able come close to your level knowledge about that neighborhood.  Someone will know within 30 seconds that you’re much different from most real estate agents!

Don’t Take Our Word For It…Here’s What Other Agents Say!




Being A Certified Neighborhood Specialist
Builds Creditability and Trust!

Some agents claim to be an “expert” but never can prove it – all they know about is the listing.  As a CNS, you can…

  • Incorporate the CNS designation into all of your marketing making it more powerful.
  • Advertise your neighborhood expertise to the community
  • Develop a comprehensive resource webpage for your neighborhood
  • Work with HOA’s as an expert about the area and issues associated with it.
  • Confidently answer any question about the neighborhood – even the tough ones.
  • Know how to use a “storyline” to sell the neighborhood and establish your creditability.

Earn More Money By Marketing And Positioning a House To Sell Faster!

CNS agents are taught how to use the demographics of the neighborhood to tailor the marketing exactly towards the right target market. For example, if you have a neighborhood that is generally young couples, then it makes sense that the marketing is geared toward attracting young married couples right?  You’d be surprised by how many agents don’t do this! 

FACT: The more selling advantages you know about of the area and weave into the benefits of a home; the more attractive you can make a home appear to the right target market.

Why is this important? The real estate market is constantly changing and today’s agent needs specialized knowledge more than ever.  This is especially true now that sellers have easy access to online/offline discounters that only charge a flat low rate to sell a house. 

If you don’t learn how to improve the marketing strategy for your listings, more of them will stall which means significantly less commissions.

Take Advantage of More Available Inventory. 
Help Buyers Locate The Perfect House/Community Faster.

CNS agents learn how research and gain a through knowledge of any neighborhood.  When working with a buyer, a CNS agent learns to first uncover the buyer’s current situation and future plans so they can isolate the best communities before selecting any homes to show.  This saves you time chauffeuring around potential buyers and showing them homes in neighborhoods that don’t fit their needs.

Most agents only ask the basics…

  • Price range?
  • How many bedrooms/baths?
  • What type of house?
  • What general location?

CNS agents have the in-depth neighborhood knowledge to ask about potential deal breakers in the first meeting!  The know how to “pre-qualify” people for the right neighborhood first…before worrying about finding the right house.

The CNS Course Is a Great.
Everything Is Thoroughly Explained – Easy To Understand

The course is presented in a cutting-edge multimedia format that allows you to learn at your own pace and the best time that fits your busy schedule.  There’s a comprehensive review at the end of each chapter. Exam questions at the end of each module ensure that you don’t miss any key points.

Most courses are boring and not interesting.  Often they are just somebody reading from a book.

Step-by-step instructions are given on how to use what you learn in your business right away plus real world examples are given for most ideas.  Everything you need to implement is given to you in one convenient location – knowledge, resources, tools, etc.

The CNS course shows you…

  • Where to go
