Members are those who have successfully completed our intensive, two-day CLHMS training and are in good standing with The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and the National Association of REALTORS® (or other ICREA affiliated organization).
Levels of Membership
The Institute has three levels of membership, based upon your performance in the upper-tier market:
Members of The Institute
As a member, you will be recognized as a knowledgeable professional who has undergone extensive training in providing quality service and effective results in the luxury market.
Members have up to three years to complete the performance requirements to earn the CLHMS designation. If the designation is not earned within that three years, the member must register and attend additional Institute training.
Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialists
Members who have met upper-tier sales performance standards and submitted their application for the designation with the supporting documentation earn the CLHMS designation upon approval of their applications.
As a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS), you will be recognized as a well-trained professional who has special upper-tier expertise and has successfully proven your expertise in the luxury home and estate marketplace.
Million Dollar Guild
Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialists (CLHMS) whose documented performance includes at least two single family property closings at $1,000,000 or above will be recognized as members of the prestigious Million Dollar Guild.
A recent RE/MAX study found that agents who had earned the CLHMS designation earned more than agents with any other designation. Despite the down market, the average 2009 income of RE/MAX agents with the CLHMS designation was $177,836. No wonder it is the official luxury designation of so many brands!
