Powell, TN: Crye-Leike Real Estate Services congratulates Managing Broker Linda Kelly for earning the e-PRO Certification, the Pricing Strategy Advisor (PSA) Certification and the Commitment to Excellence (C2EX) Endorsement from the National Association of REALTORS (NAR). Kelly is the managing broker of Crye-Leike's Powell branch office and specializes in residential sales throughout Knox, Anderson and surrounding counties.

During these past couple of months, Kelly chose to spend her quarantine newfound free time to advance her knowledge of real estate. First earning the C2EX Endorsement, Kelly has affirmed to consumers that she upholds a higher standard of ethics and professionalism in her work.

Shortly after, in order to receive the e-PRO Certification in May, Kelly participated in the most up-to-date technology training for real estate professionals. She has increased her ability to reach customers, expanded her digital marketing capabilities and built trust with clients by knowing how to safeguard their personal information.

In June, Kelly earned the PSA Certification, enhancing her skills in pricing properties, while working with appraisers and guiding clients through the anxieties and misperceptions they often have about home values.

Kelly's new designations will accompany six previously earned endorsements and certifications earned from NAR, and she is proud of the hard work she has put forth during these times.

"After taking these trainings and acquiring new skills, I feel that I can now help sellers to place their home on the market at the correct price for prime selling opportunities," said Kelly. "I can also help buyers present offers in a way that will land them their dream home. I believe in upholding REALTOR professionalism and helping my clients achieve their dreams."

Kelly, a member of the real estate industry for 36 years, is affiliated with the National Association of REALTORS (NAR), the Tennessee Association of REALTORS (TAR), the Knoxville Area Association of REALTORS (KAAR) and the Greater Smoky Mountain Association of REALTORS (GSMAR). Her hard work and dedication to her clients was recognized in 2019, when Kelly was named REALTOR of the Year by the Women's Council of REALTORS of Knoxville.
