Naples, FL, November 2, 2016 – Elli Taylor with the central office of John R. Wood Properties has earned the prestigious Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist® (CLHMS) designation as well as the Million Dollar Guild (GUILD) Recognition®, both owned by The Institute for Luxury Home Marketing®. 

The CLHMS and GUILD designations recognize Taylor’s experience, knowledge, and expertise in the luxury residential market, and her proficiencies in working with the affluent customer. The Institute only awards these recognitions to professionals who have provided verified and notarized documentation of performance reflecting sales in the top 10% of their given market.  Transactions less than $500,000 are not recognized as luxury regardless of market performance or fluctuations.

“The Institute has one of the highest standards for the definition of ‘luxury’ within the residential real estate market,” said Amanda Hammer, Director of Membership at The Institute. “Agents who earn and hold our CLHMS and GUILD designation are proven and experienced real estate professionals working the upper-tier market.  Affluent buyers and sellers should seek out sales professionals who have these affiliations and be confident that they have the specialized expertise and experience to successfully represent them in their residential real estate transactions.”

“To have this recognition of my accomplishments in serving Naples is an honor,” said Taylor. “I am committed to providing exceptional service to my clients and these designations are evidence and affirmation of my ability to do so.”

Taylor has been a real estate agent with John R. Wood Properties since 2000, employing a “success through service and relationship building” formula to her business. Taylor is revered by colleagues and clients alike for applying a patient, persistent, and honest approach to every real estate transaction.  In addition to her recent awards, Taylor holds the elite designations of Master Certified Negotiation Expert (MCNE), Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Certified Residential Specialist (CRS), and Graduate Realtor® Institute (GRI).  She is also actively involved in the community, having sat on the Board of Directors for Collier County Special Olympics, as a Judicial Panel Chair for Citizen’s Foster Care Review Board, as a committee member of Temple Shalom, and as a classroom teacher volunteer for Junior Achievement.
