"The RSPS certification program is unlike any other professional certification or designation," said Allan "Dutch" Dechert, 2008 chair of the NAR Resort & Second-Home Committee and an RSPS. "It takes specialized skills and knowledge to maximize the business opportunities in resort and second-home markets. You need to be able to communicate your proficiency in this aspect of real estate. RSPS certification lets everyone know you're serious about lifestyle real estate."
