Local REALTORS® have agreed to host the Accredited Luxury Home Specialist (ALHS) course, a designation program distributed by REALTYU the largest network of real estate educators in the nation. The program will be delivered on May 1 & 2, 2008.
The Accredited Luxury Home Specialist designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Luxury Home Council® an organization of real estate agents and brokers who specialize in selling luxury homes. As the housing market has changed over the years many real estate professionals have found that by specializing in a specific niche of the real estate market they are better able to assist their clients.
"The agents who attend this course are committed to increasing their level of service to buyers and sellers within the luxury housing market. They represent some of the most elite agents in the United States." said Jim Remley, Luxury Home Council founder.
According to the Luxury Home Council's annual survey of it membership the average luxury home specialist reports an annual sales volume of just over $7 million dollars per year, or nearly three time that of an average real estate agent.
The two day course includes information on national and local housing trends, specialized luxury buyer and seller needs, development and delivery of unique services, representation, liability and risk management, negotiating, builder services and marketing.
