Special designation for local Realtor
David Blockhus, a sales associate with Coldwell Banker/Cornish & Carey in Los Altos, has been awarded the certified residential specialist designation by the Residential Sales Council of the Realtors National Marketing Institute, an affiliate of the National Association of Realtors.
Fewer than 5 percent of Realtors nationwide have earned the designation. To do so requires completion of required coursework and demonstration of specific expertise in applied residential real estate marketing.
