Designation Requirements

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

1. Must be a REALTOR®, REALTOR-Associate® or REALTOR® Association Executive and complete the PMN application.

2. Successfully complete at least three Performance Management Network courses:

  • Effective Negotiating for Real Estate Professionals
  • Networking & Referral Systems
  • Leadership Excellence
  • The Business of Your Business: Formula, Financials, Function & Freedom (Available Online)
  • Harnessing the Power: Skills Based Performance Management

Note: Any one of the following National Association of REALTORS® certifications may be used to replace one PMN course credit. To receive credit for a certification, submit a copy of your certificate to the National WCR office, along with your other documentation:

  • At Home with Diversity (AHWD)
  • Broker Price Opinion Resource (BPOR)
  • e-PRO
  • Military Relocation Professional (MRP)
  • Resort & Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS)
  • Short Sales and Foreclosures Resource (SFR)

3. 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 REALTOR®** = 5 points each
  • From a client = 2 points each

** Recruit this REALTOR® 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.
