Trina Laird, a Realtor in Northern California, earns the RSPS Certification demonstrating her expertise as a resort and second home specialist.

Trina Laird, Realtor with LYON Real Estate in Auburn, has been awarded the Resort and Second-Home Property Specialist (RSPS) Certification. The RSPS Certification is a nationally-recognized certification awarded by the National Association of REALTORS® to real estate professionals who wish to demonstrate and promote – to consumers and their peers alike – their expertise in the resort and second home specialty.

Laird joins more than 1,600 real estate professionals who have earned the RSPS certification. REALTORS® who receive the RSPS certification have successfully completed the Resort & Second-Home Markets Course along with three webinars in the field of resort and second home real estate. Laird now joins other real estate professionals who specialize in buying, selling, or managing second homes in a resort, recreational, and/or vacation destination and properties for investment, development, or retirement.

“I truly appreciate the NAR for offering this advanced coursework and certification. I enjoy helping homeowners grow their investments through 1031 exchanges and second homes,” said Laird. “My real estate practice is based in Northern California, home to some of the most beautiful communities in this great state. However, some of the most charming neighborhoods are guarded, making just shopping for a home quite difficult. With Realtor access to Lake of the Pines and Lake Wildwood I’m able to preview and show these homes to my clients that are looking for primary, second or investment homes. Armed with my RSPS certification I have even more confidence in guiding them through this process and helping them achieve both personal and investment goals.”
