The designation was created by Leading RE to provide members with comprehensive professional development in the area of referrals and relocation, supporting the network’s 30,000+ affiliate-to-affiliate client referrals each year.
“We continually strive to help our members set the standard for excellence, whether they are assisting clients who are new to their area or those moving across the country or around the world,” said Leading RE Director, Member Services Brent Williams. “By earning the GRP, Benson has demonstrated a strong working knowledge of and commitment to superior relocation services.”
“I enjoy the variety of my new role as a GRP and focusing on projects that help contribute to the Company’s success.

This includes relocation and referral services,” said Benson.
