Pepper Coffey, who heads the Relocation Division of Pacific Sothebyâ€™s Realty, is one of two members of the Sothebyâ€™s International Realty network to earn this designation in 2014.
TheÂ Worldwide ERCÂ®, the Workforce Mobility Association, introduced the CRPÂ® program in 1990 to formally recognize relocation professionals’ knowledge of the U.S. domestic workforce mobility process.Â The designation is awarded to select members after they pass a comprehensive examinationÂ covering the many disciplines that U.S. domestic employee mobility entails, including corporate policies and programs, real estate, as well as transferee counseling and other services.
â€œSuccessfully completing the CRPÂ® exam is a rigorous endeavor,â€ says Steven M. John CRP, GMS, of RELO Direct, Inc., CRPÂ® Certification Review Board Chairman. â€œIt demonstrates not only a solid command of very complex subject matter, but dedication to oneâ€™s professional development and the employee mobility industry overall.â€
