Don’t trust your lifestyle decision and your significant residential investment to just any agent


Just as working with a top notch investment advisor, a savvy tax planner, or a renowned medical
specialist can make a difference in your results, choosing a luxury home expert offers tremendous

Experienced buyers and sellers of high end residential properties seek real estate professionals

  • Skills that come from special training
  • Documented performance at the top of the market
  • The desire to offer concierge level service
  • An understanding of the lifestyles of the affluent consumer
  • The tools necessary to accomplish your transaction goals
  • Access to a network of other top luxury professionals

Agents who have earned the prestigious CERTIFIED LUXURY HOME MARKETING
SPECIALIST® designation have earned this coveted recognition as a result of special training and
verified buying and selling performance. We believe they have competencies and access to tools
over and above those of the average Realtor.

For example, they can check an affluent buyer prospects financial credibility in seconds using
data from the country’s largest aggregator of information about the wealthy. They understand
how to use price band statistics (not market averages) to help you negotiate the best deal. They
understand lifestyle marketing and the concept of targeting “most likely buyers” for your home.
Buying? They’ll guide you as you make a wise choice. In short, the choice of a CLHMS™
professional starts the smart decision making you’ll do for your next buying or selling transaction.

What a CLHMS knows can make a difference for you.

What you need to know about the Million Dollar Guild®

Million and multi-million dollar residences represent the lifestyle choices and the portfolio plays
of the very successful.

The right real estate professional can help you maximize your desired lifestyle and protect your
investment as you buy or sell residential real estate.

Members of The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing who have earned their CERTIFIED
LUXURY HOME MARKETING SPECIALIST® designations and Million Dollar Guild® recognition,
have met specific criteria designed to give you confidence in their capabilities:

  • They’ve attended training specific to the high end luxury market.
  • They’ve documented performance in the million dollar and above housing market.
  • They are part of a small and exclusive cadre of agents who work in the top 1.2% of the market.
  • They are specialists in assisting with the selection and sale of million dollar+ properties.
  • Their toolbox contains the necessary marketing tools.

The million dollar+ transaction requires sophistication and knowledge over and above that of the
average agent. Rather than selecting an agent who is using your transaction to learn, consider an
experienced professional who not only has the credibility of the CERTIFIED LUXURY HOME
MARKETING SPECIALIST® designation, but has also earned Million Dollar Guild® recognition.
A smart choice.

Since many owners of luxury homes also have residential investment properties, your agent may
also have expertise in working with investor clients.
