RISMEDIA, Jan. 11, 2008-The National Association of Realtor’s Council of Residential Specialists® has recently approved an Institute for Luxury Home Marketing course for two elective credits toward earning the Certified Residential Specialist (CRS®) designation.
Completion of The Institute’s two-day course on luxury home marketing also results in membership in the Institute and is the first step in earning the organization’s prestigious Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS®) designation.
“We are excited about working with the Council of Residential Specialists,” said Institute Founder Laurie Moore-Moore. “The CRS® designation curriculum is recognized as some of the best skill-based training for working with both buyers and sellers in the industry. We are proud to have our certification course included on the CRS elective credit list.”
CRS and The Institute each provide highly regarded designations. While the CRS designation recognizes outstanding success in the residential market encompassing all price ranges, the Institute’s CLHMS designation is specific to success in the luxury home niche.
“Adding The Institute’s luxury home marketing course to our CRS elective curriculum expands the opportunities for CRS candidates to complete their education requirements in the upper tier market area,” said Toni Sherman, the Council of Residential Specialists’ Director of Business Relations (who also holds the CRS designation).
