About the CLHMS Designation

The CLHMS Designation

Recognized as the mark of accomplishment in luxury markets around the world, 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.

Members of The Institute who hold the CLHMS designation have documented performance in the TOP 10% of their markets, and have successfully demonstrated their expertise in the luxury home and estate market.

Is it a true LUXURY designation?

To earn the CLHMS designation, an agent must successfully list and/or sell luxury properties in the top 10% of his or her market area (as defined by the area's sales prices in the most recent 12 months). Homes that are priced below $500,000 will not be considered for the designation, even if the top 10% of that particular market is below the $500,000 minimum.
