Indianapolis Realtor Kristie Smith Builds Expertise in Luxury Home Market

Smith earns certification from the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. Smith is just one of eight Indy agents with certification.

Carmel, IN–October 12, 2006 Kristie Smith, relocation director with Real Estate Links, recently completed a luxury home marketing training course offered by The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing.

The course—which covered such topics as demographics of the affluent, lifestyle segmentation, trends and amenities in today’s luxury home product, and creating a marketing plan for the multimillion dollar property—was taught by Laurie Moore-Moore, president of the Dallas-based Institute and author of the book, “Rich Buyer, Rich Seller! The Real Estate Agents’ Guide to Marketing Luxury Homes.”

“The course is a step towards earning the prestigious Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist designation which The Institute awards internationally to sales professionals who meet performance standards in the upper-tier residential market,” said Moore-Moore. “Kristie Smith is an example of a sales associate who works to hone the special skills and competencies necessary to provide exceptional service in the fine homes and estates marketplace.”

Smith is an award-winning sales associate who has been in real estate since 2002 and specializes in the Indianapolis and Hamilton/Boone County markets.

“The training provided new insight about the upper-tier market, helped me polish my skills, and provided valuable networking contacts with other agents across the country who specialize in luxury properties,” said Smith. “In addition, I discovered new and creative tools for promoting expensive homes and estates and new resources for finding buyer prospects. Home buyers and sellers will benefit from my new knowledge.”
