– Royal LePage Agents –

The CLHMS Designation is the official designation of
the Royal LePage Carriage Trade program.

The Institute exists to help real estate professionals provide high quality service to the buyers and sellers of luxury homes and in so doing, maximize their own success in the upper-tier residential market.

As a Royal LePage agent committed to success, we invite you to become a Member and earn your Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist® designation.

What are the steps for becoming a Member and earning the CLHMS designation?

  1. Register for the two-day Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist training course. There are no prerequisites for attending the training. 
    Royal LePage agents can complete the training and become Members of The Institute by taking a live course, or the special Royal LePage version of our online training.
    Discounted registration for the self-paced online training course is available here.
  2. Once you have completed the training, you will receive a complimentary two-year membership in the The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. As a Member you will have access to the member network, and thousands of dollars worth of member benefits.
  3. When you have met the sales performance requirements, complete the CLHMS designation application form, and submit it to The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. Active members may wait as long as three years after completing the course to submit performance requirement verification.  Agents who submit at least two properties sold at one million dollars or more will receive the special acknowledgment of being members of THE MILLION DOLLAR GUILD, a select recognition group within The Institute.

Do I have to meet the CLHMS performance standards before I can take the training?

No, you can take the training and meet sales performance requirements later. Active Members may take as long as three years after completing the course to submit performance requirements for verification and earn the designation.
