About The CLHMS™ Designation

Recognized as the mark of accomplishment in luxury markets around the world and the official luxury designation of many national and international brands, the Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™ (CLHMS) designation assures affluent buyers and sellers that the agents who have earned it have the knowledge, experience, competence, and confidence they require.

Agents who hold the CLHMS™ designation are Members of The Institute who have completed the required training and have successfully demonstrated their expertise in the luxury home and estate market.

In order to earn and hold the designation an agent must:

  1. Be a licensed real estate professional
  2. Fulfill educational requirements
  3. Meet sales requirements by providing their documented performance in the upper-tier of their local markets
  4. Maintain membership in good standing with The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing

The Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist™ designation is a mark of individual accomplishment. It is not awarded at the team or company level.

In addition to the CLHMS™ designation, agents may also earn the GUILD™ recognition.
