Buying a Home can be One of Life’s Toughest Decisions.

The purchase of a home can be a very emotional experience. There are multiple parties, conflicting interests, and a myriad of issues that make a simple negotiation complex. In choosing your real estate professional, there is one factor to consider above all others: how well can your real estate professional negotiate on your behalf?

You set the terms and conditions for your agent to achieve. It is then up to your agent to use all of his/her negotiating strategies to persuade the other side to accept your terms. Therefore, you need to be certain that your agent has the skills to effectively persuade and influence the other party.

CNE agents had this to say about negotiation tips learned in class:
“The Certified Negotiation Expert course was the most informative and, I feel, most crucial in the real estate industry as our business revolves around being able to attain the best results for our clients.” Vicki Cooper, Broker, CNE

“The seller gave me several compliments on the tactics we used and the confidence they have in me. The CNE class was the BEST and most valuable I have taken in my years in real estate.” Sherry Rosenlund, CNE

“I walked away from the class having the information that I needed to make myself the negotiator that I want to be for my clients.” Mari Harvin, CNE

“This course provides realtors with immediate skills to negotiate effectively for successful real estate transactions!” Benjamin Little, CNE

“This truly is the ‘missing link’ class for the real estate licensee and should be part of the required education to obtain a license.” Judy Elfving, CNE

“I went to present a counter to the seller and listing agent tonight. I used the tools that I learned in the CNE course and it was magic! One hour after I left the house the seller told the agent that he felt I was sincere and would accept our offer. His words, ‘I know slick and that wasn’t slick!’” Debra Gravelle, CNE

”The CNE designation enables me to provide my clients with premier representation.” Emmanuel Fonte, CNE

“Once the public learns what additional skills and knowledge CNE agents have, CNE agents will be the most in-demand realtors in their markets. This is an extremely valuable course with fantastic support materials.” David Hancock, CNE
