What is the CLHMS Designation?

The Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLMHS) designation is reserved for real estate professionals that regularly serve residential buyers and sellers in the upper-tier market. Our own Steve York, president of York Real Estate, has the CLMHS designation. There are 3 requirements for this achievement.

Training
The first is to complete a 2-day training seminar provided by The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. This teaches real estate agents how to handle marketing for upper-tier clients. It also focuses on research strategies and ways to provide the best customer service possible in this unique housing market.

Membership
The real estate specialist must be a member in good standing of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing, which is an independent organization. All members must complete the training before they can be considered for membership. They must also be a member of the National Association of Realtor or a similar organization with recognized credentials.

Certification
The CLHMS designation is reserved for those performing in the top 10% of their market’s property sales.

This certification is reassurance for those in the market for a luxury home that their real estate agent is a specialist with a clear understanding of their special needs.
