To earn the Accredited Luxury Home Specialist designation from the comfort of your home or office, your first step is to complete the online course, provided by OnlineEd. You will be trained on topics such as working with High-Net-Worth and Ultra-High-Net-Worth Individuals, how to promote yourself as a specialist in the luxury home market, and even the best ways to show homes to a wealthy seller or list a luxury home on the real estate market.

ALHS candidates also need to be members of the Luxury Home Council. A one-year membership to the Luxury Home Council is included with the ALHS course.

After passing the course, your next task will be to complete the Achievement Verification Statement (AVS). The statement requires all ALHS candidates to practice their new skills by closing on two transactions where the purchase price is at least two times the average sales price in the candidate's real estate market. The closings must be within 24 months of finishing the course or at any time prior to completing the ALHS course. Once you use your luxury home training to complete this requirement, and your managing broker confirms your accomplishment on the Achievement Verification Statement (AVS), you will earn the Accredited Luxury Home Specialist designation.

As a member of the Luxury Home Council, you will receive numerous benefits that will continue long after you have obtained the ALHS designation.
