Following are the requirements to obtain WCR's Performance Management Network Designation, which is an official REALTORS® Designation.

  • The Business of Your Business: Formula, Financials, Function & Freedom (Available Online)
  • Harnessing the Power: Skills Based Performance Management

Any one of the following National Association of REALTORS® certifications may be used to replace one PMN course credit, or if you've held the CRS designation for one year this may also count in lieu of one PMN course. (Note: Only one course can be waived for the designation. A minimum of two PMN curriculum courses must be taken to obtain the designation regardless of the number of certifications/designations held):

  • At Home with Diversity (AHWD)
  • Broker Price Opinion Resource (BPOR)

  • e-PRO
  • Military Relocation Professional (MRP)
  • Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA)

  • Short Sales and Foreclosures Resource (SFR)

3. Designee candidates may pursue one of 2 paths to obtain the designation as follows:

Option A: PMN Business Referrals Track:

The PMN Business Referrals Track requires completion of the Networking and Referrals: Building Business and Profit course. Additionally, submit documented evidence of closed referral transactions (sales) within the past 24 months totaling 30 points as follows:

  • To/from another national WCR member = 10 points each
  • To/from a non-WCR REALTORS®* = 5 points each
  • From a client = 2 points each

* Recruit this REALTORS® to become a National WCR member, and you double the points earned.

Examples of documentation include company referral form, copy of check, client lists or a signed statement from a broker. Be sure to include closing date and information.

Members eligible for the designation (REALTORS®, REALTOR-Associates® or REALTOR® Association Executives) who do not list or sell (i.e. real estate trainers, managers or REALTORS® in affiliate positions) may satisfy this requirement by recruiting three REALTORS® to join WCR as national members.

Option B: Business Leadership Track:

The PMN Business Leadership Track requires completion of the Leadership Excellence course. Additionally, candidates are asked to track their leadership experience in three areas for corresponding points: Women's Council (40), REALTOR® associations (30), and in their community (30).

Point totals must reach 100. Members who do not list or sell (i.e. real estate trainers, managers or REALTORS® in affiliate positions) are not eligible for this track.

Note: students and graduates of REALTORS® University's Masters of Real Estate program may obtain course waivers for the PMN designation, please contact WCR for further information.
