Brenda Purcell, of Chattanooga, has been awarded the prestigious Certified Residential Specialist (CRS) Designation by the Council of Residential Specialists, the largest not-for-profit affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.

Realtors who receive the CRS Designation have completed advanced professional training and demonstrated outstanding professional achievement in residential real estate. Only 32,000 realtors nationwide have earned the credential. Out of more than 1 million realtors, less than 3% are Certified Residential Specialists.

Home buyers and sellers can be assured that CRS Designees subscribe to the strict Realtor code of ethics, have been trained to use the latest tactics and technologies, and are specialists in helping clients maximize profits and minimize costs when buying or selling a home.

Ms. Purcell is a broker with REMAX Renaissance Realtors.  She is a member of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors. She is also a graduate of the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, a past UTC Alumni Board member and a former member of the UTNAA Board of Governors.  She is a 1993 graduate of Leadership Chattanooga and a former member of the Junior League of Chattanooga.  Presently, she is a member of the Judge David Campbell chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution.

"It has been a goal of mine to obtain the coveted CRS designation since I entered the real estate profession over 17 years ago," said Ms. Purcell.  "As realtors, we better serve our clients and the community by pursuing life-long learning and continuing education."
