All applications require supporting documentation for each qualified transaction. Supporting documentation must clearly state the following:
- Full Property Address
- Property Type or Description is residential

- Sold Price
- Closed Date
Support documentation options are:
- Full MLS Sold Report, or

All submitted transactions must be closed residential properties, such as single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums, or cooperatives. Unimproved land, commercial properties, or multifamily properties do not qualify.
Members who earn GUILD recognition must renew their membership with The Institute annually to continue marketing and promoting their Institute membership, CLHMS designation, and GUILD recognition.
