Earning the CLHMS Designation
There are three steps required to earn and use the CLHMS designation:
Sales Performance - Once you have completed the training and become a member, you must verify that you are performing in the TOP 10% of your market. (See performance criteria below).
Membership in good standing with The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing and the National Association of REALTORS® (or other ICREA affiliated organization). First year membership dues are included in the cost of your CLHMS training. Annual dues for renewing members are only $225.
Education and Sales Performance Criteria for CLHMS Designation
There are three options. Choose the option that's the best fit for you.
The qualifying sales price to earn the CLHMS designation is the price which defines the minimum value of the top 10% of residential sales in your market, or $500,000, whichever is HIGHER. Never will we accept a property less than $500,000.
All residential transactions being submitted must be single family homes, townhouses, condominiums, or cooperatives. If you represented both the seller (listing) and the buyer (sale) in a given transaction, you may consider it two transaction sides.
The above requirements are based on individual performance. In order to earn and use The CLHMS designation and the Million Dollar Guild recognition, you must have completed training and be a Member in good standing of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.
There are no exceptions to the performance requirements stated above.
