Browning is one of over 500 REALTOR® AEs who have achieved this mark of excellence. Local and state AEs who hold the RCE designation represent REALTORS® in 50 states/territories.


The RCE is the only professional designation designed specifically for REALTOR® AEs. It exemplifies goal-oriented AEs with drive, experience, and commitment to professional growth, according to NAR’s website. Prior to becoming a candidate for the RCE designation, applicants must document their association management and academic experiences. Once they have completed this first step, eligible candidates must successfully complete a multiple-choice exam, which is based on a comprehensive understanding of association operations and management practices. Candidates must demonstrate knowledge of areas critical to REALTOR® association management, including association law, governance, and issues related to member services. To retain the designation, RCEs must be recertified every four years.


“We are incredibly proud of Page for earning this coveted designation,” said Coastal President Bernie Flax. “She is truly a wonderful asset to our association and this accomplishment shows just how dedicated she is to serving our members.”

Browning also holds the Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation through the American Society of Association Executives (ASAE). The CAE credential is the marker of a committed association professional who has demonstrated the wide range of knowledge essential to manage an association in today’s challenging environment, according to the ASAE website.
