TORONTO & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 22, 2024-- In response to the growing number of luxury real estate agents and teams joining the company, The Real Brokerage Inc. (NASDAQ: REAX), the fastest-growing, publicly traded real estate brokerage, today announced the launch of Real Luxury.

Real Luxury members will have access to partner networks consisting of more than 100,000 luxury agents across the globe, an expanded referral network, training sessions and specialized continuing education programs, exclusive members-only events and conferences and a wide range of discounts on additional products and services ranging from advertising in Mansion Global and The Wall Street Journal to luxury market reports and custom property websites. As part of this commitment to differentiate Real in the luxury arena, Real Luxury agents are expected to earn the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing’s prestigious Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist (CLHMS™) designation prior to becoming an official division member.

By establishing the highest standards for membership in the industry, Real Luxury members will stand out as some of the world’s most elite agents.
