CORDOVA, TN.- Crye-Leike, REALTORS congratulates Managing Broker Hank Hogue on earning his Council of Real Estate Brokerage Managers (CRB) designation.  Hogue is the Managing Broker in Crye-Leike’s Cordova Branch Office located at 894 Germantown Parkway in Cordova Tennessee.


“I’m glad that I finally took the time to finish my requirements to receive my CRB designation,” said Hogue.  “Early in my career I realized that the key to success in real estate is to learn from successful professional real estate agents.  I did this by joining Crye-Leike and by taking as many real estate courses as I could as quickly as I could.”


The CRB designation is earned by completing four classes in real estate management and serving as a manager for at least three years.  There are only 7,000 managers nationwide who hold the CRB designation.


“I earned my first professional designation as a Certified Real Estate Specialist (CRS) way back in 1987 and surprisingly the principles and practices I learned then are still applicable today,” said Hogue.  “You never stop studying and learning is a message that I try to convey in everything I do.”


Hogue’s career in real estate spans 23 years.  He is a licensed Broker in Tennessee and Mississippi assisting buyers and sellers in and around Shelby, Fayette and Desoto counties.  Hogue has been a manager with Crye-Leike for two decades, specializes in residential real estate sales and loves doing his job.


“As a real estate professional my job is to solve problems whether it’s with a seller, buyer or one of my agents,” said Hogue.  “I enjoy training and speaking about the real estate business and I just retired from Success Real Estate School when I taught a pre-licensing course for 15 years.”


Hogue also does some training for Crye-Leike, Franchises Inc., which gives him the opportunity to share his experience with agents across the company’s franchise system.


In addition to his CRB and CRS designations, Hogue is also a Graduate, REALTOR Institute (GRI).  He is a member of the Memphis Area Association of Realtors (MAAR), Northwest Mississippi Association of Realtors (NWMAR), Tennessee Association of Realtors (TAR) and National Association of Realtors (NAR).
