Crye-Leike Congratulates Don Cockroft on earning his designation as a Certified Residential Specialist

Memphis, TN., – After many years assisting buyers and sellers with all of their real estate needs, Crye-Leike Broker Don Cockroft  knows the importance of keeping his education and knowledge of the market up-to-date.


In order to better serve his clients, Don recently decided he wanted to add another real estate designation to his long list of educational credentials. He fulfilled all of the requirements needed to earn his professional real estate designation as a Certified Residential Specialist (CRS).


“The CRS is recognized by all Realtors as a benchmark of professionalism,” said Don. “Today, home buyers have access to more information than ever before and that information can sometimes be very confusing. I want to make sure I have the tools necessary to help them navigate the home buying process and the CRS gives me those tools.”


To obtain the CRS designation, Don successfully completed advanced courses and demonstrated personal expertise in the field of residential real estate. He joins a select few Realtors that hold the CRS credential.


“I feel a responsibility to provide a level of care to all of my clients that exceeds their expectations,” said Don. “In return, they remember they received superior service and are proud to refer me to their friends and family.”


The CRS designation gives buyers and sellers who work with Don the confidence to know they are working with a professional who subscribes to a strict code of ethics and has access to the latest technology. Don’s goal is to better help clients maximize profits and minimize costs when buying or selling a home.


“I’m dedicated to making sure my clients receive superior customer service,” said Don. “If my clients aren’t completely satisfied with my service; I will make it right. Their interest as a client comes before anything else. I work for them.”


In addition to the CRS designation, Don also holds professional real estate designations as an e-PRO Internet Marketing Specialist, as an Accredited Buyer Representative (ABR), and as a Graduate Realtor Institute (GRI).  He is a licensed Broker based out of Crye-Leike’s corporate headquarters Quail Hollow office in Memphis.


Don has been proud to call Memphis home for over 40 years. He holds degrees in Business Administration and Microcomputer Technology Management. Don is a member of the Memphis Area Association of Realtors, the Tennessee Association of Realtors and the National Association of Realtors.
