What’s the difference between a CIAS-designated agent and a regular real estate agent?

While all potential agents in the state are educated on the same principles and required to take the same amount of continuing educational hours, a Certified Investor Agent Specialist™ (CIAS) takes it many steps further in real estate investing education. 

According to the Charfen Institute…

“A Certified Investor Agent Specialist™ (CIAS) finds, creates, and closes with residential real estate investors with the knowledge and tools earned through comprehensive education and experience. CIAS-designated agents can streamline the process of real estate investment to increase returns for investor clients.”

CIAS-designated agents help real estate investors navigate:

  • Investment Strategies
  • Self-directed IRAs
  • 1031 Exchange
  • Leverage Options
  • Key Calculations
  • Return-on-Investment
  • Capitalization Rate
  • Average Returns
  • Cash Flow
  • And much more!


Investors are coming out on top this year with low housing prices, low interest rates, and rising rent prices.  It’s not hard to get started either; check out what this family did…
