(OnlineEd® – Portland, OR) – The Accredited Luxury Home Specialist designation is awarded to real estate practitioners by the Luxury Home Council®, an organization of real estate agents and office managers who specialize in selling and marketing luxury homes. As the housing market has changed over the years, many real estate professionals have found that by specializing in the expensive luxury home niche of the real estate market they are better able to assist their clients, as well as maintain their personal income through fewer sales of more expensive homes.
“The agents who complete 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’s members, the average luxury home specialist reports an annual sales volume of just over $7 million per year, or nearly three times that of an average real estate agent.
The course is now available online though OnlineEd® at www.OnlineEd.com. The online course delivery includes information about national and local trends, specialized luxury buyer and seller needs, development and delivery of unique services, representation, liability and risk management, negotiating, builder services and marketing.
