Recognized by their peers, clients and employers, this prestigious award is given for outstanding professional achievement, impeccable judgment and commitment to integrity in the field of real estate counseling. Invitation to membership is rare and Counselors must adhere to a strict Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Practice.

Counselors are recognized in the marketplace as having consistently demonstrated the highest levels of knowledge, experience, integrity, and judgment.

Craig Coppola, Principal also carries these prestigious titles.  “In Andrew’s 13-plus years working in our industry, he has consistently provided quality service, shown impeccable integrity and provided proven leadership,” said Gerald Zaddack, Chair, Southwest Chapter, Counselors of Real Estate.
