Hart Summeier

Realtor earns certification

GREENFIELD — Hart Summeier with Level Up Real Estate Group has been awarded the nationally recognized Military Relocation Professional Certification. The National Association of Realtors awards the MRP certification to realtors who help military personnel, veterans and their families find housing that lets them make the best use of their benefits and serves the unique needs of military life.

When military staff and their families relocate, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster, and less stressful. Realtors who earn this certification know to work with active duty military buyers and sellers, as well as veterans.

The certification provides NAR’s members with resources to accommodate current and former military service members at any stage of their military career, and is an approved elective for NAR’s Accredited Buyer’s Representative designation. To earn the MRP certification, realtors must be in good standing with NAR; complete the Military Relocation Professional Certification course and complete two webinars.
