Barbara Pugh earns Strategic Pricing Specialist Designation

Barbara Pugh with Coldwell Banker Sea Coast Realty in Wilmington, N.C. recently earned the Strategic Pricing Specialist certification. The Strategic Pricing Specialist (SPS®) designation is only awarded to real estate professionals that participate in the advanced training program and commit to providing exceptional service to their clients.

Created by JAMM Coaching and Training, the Strategic Pricing Specialist (SPS®) Designation is revolutionizing the real estate industry. SPS® was designed to help real estate professionals minimize overpriced listings and better assist sellers when preparing to list their home for sale. This course is the first of its kind.

According to Jo Mangum, creator of the program and Founder of JAMM Coaching and Training, Pugh has joined a select group of sales associates that have committed to providing excellent service to their clients by giving them sound advice when considering selling their home. “An overpriced listing will be on the market longer, which translates into less money in the seller’s pocket. Listing homes that are incorrectly priced is no longer an option for today’s real estate professionals”. To better assist today’s real estate professionals, Mangum created this unique program. “SPS® designees approach pricing as a strategy and have the skills needed to navigate that strategy. They know how to help sellers understand how agents work, apply market trends and value the process of “how buyers buy” to ensure that they get the maximum return on their investment”.
