The Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™ (CLHMS) designation, assures affluent buyers and sellers that real estate professionals have the knowledge, experience, and unique skills to meet their needs.
By taking the next step in your career, you set yourself apart as a dedicated and success-driven real estate professional and the expert knowledge and useful skills give you an extra edge when relating to buyers and sellers.
Why Should You Get a Designation?
If you take your career and reputation in the luxury home market seriously, the CLHMS designation is the perfect next step to stand out to clients and other professionals.
In 2016, a study completed by one of the top real estate brands found that CLHMS members who maintained their designation had higher success and earned more commission than agents with other designations. Not to mention, Institute members who have earned their CLHMS designation rested in the TOP 10% of their residential markets and have also proven their abilities and expertise in the luxury home market.
The Institute of Luxury Home Marketing encourages their members to take advantage of the designation opportunities, to not only advance their skill set, but also their real estate community and professional opportunities.
What Does a Designation Do For Your Career?
The real estate industry is an extremely personable and relationship-oriented industry. Your clients need to be able to trust that you have the ability to give them exactly what they have been looking for. While that is a big request, your first step to making that a reality for your client is trust.
By becoming certified as a Luxury Home Marketing Specialist, your client is able to relax, knowing you have the proper skills to assist them and that their future can be trusted in your hands. The CLHMS designation also adds validity to your reputation and upstanding within the real estate realm and assures customers they are receiving expert help in buying or selling a home.
Who Can Apply?
Institute members are eligible to apply for the CLHMS designation as long as they are in good standing with the Institute and have successfully closed three residential transactions in the top 10% of their market within 24 months.
According to CLHMS member and successful real estate professional, Patrick Tuttle: “The Institute of Luxury Home Marketing is the premier place to get a designation and ILHM wants any of their members to have the opportunity to take that next step.”
