Crye-Leike Agents Awarded As Certified Negotiation Experts

Flowood, Mississippi., – Professional negotiation skills are a must for all real estate agents helping home buyers and sellers, especially in the current market. That’s why two Realtors from Crye-Leike’s Flowood, Mississippi office decided to earn their professional real estate designation as Certified Negotiation Experts (CNE).


Crye-Leike agents Carol Stewart and Rick Young recently completed all of the necessary coursework required to earn their CNE designation – which is one of the top new designations Realtors can obtain. They attended a 2 day seminar taught nationally by the Real Estate Negotiation Institute (RENI) instructor Oliver Frascona.


As Certified Negotiation Experts, Carol and Rick have received professional training acquiring negotiation skills that help them assist their clients in obtaining better results with the sale or purchase of a home.


CNE agents like Carol and Rick have a powerful competitive edge because of their abilities to communicate effectively to uncover more information, to help clients understand their options, to work collaboratively with others, and to resolve deadlocks. CNE agents have a thorough understanding of how to negotiate effectively to help achieve their clients’ goals.


The CNE designation was designed and is awarded by the Real Estate Negotiation Institute.  Real estate professionals can earn their CNE after successfully completing formal negotiation training. According to the RENI, agents who receive this certification are in the top 1% of all agents nationally.


The Real Estate Negotiation Institute is the leading negotiation training and coaching company in the real estate industry.  Tom Hayman, the CEO and Co-Founder of the Real Estate Negotiation Institute, is a professional negotiator with 35+ years of negotiation experience.


Hayman explains, “Any Buyer or Seller who hires a CNE? agent can feel confident they have one of the best trained negotiators in real estate.  The buyer or seller should achieve superior results and have better resolution of all issues when represented by a CNE agent.”
