While education is important in furthering one's career in real estate, continuing education does not have to take form in one of the accrediation programs, such as e-pro, ABR and others. While an additional designation may boost your appeal to some, most homebuyers and seller look to the internet for a Realtor. That said, I have a website and consider myself an "e-pro" even though I do not hold the designation. That said, when I do have the extra $400 it costs to take the course, I will do it. The problem is that new Realtors in a tough market usually do not have the money to spend on extras, such as education and advertising.
