November 22, 2013 – Congratulations to Shelley Specchio of Northern Nevada Regional MLS as she has recently been inducted into the CMLS CMLX Level One – Professional inaugural class. While there were no caps and gowns at this “graduation,” the inaugural class was officially pinned by the CMLX committee during the multiple listing service (MLS) executives meeting held this month during the National Associations of REALTORS® Annual Convention in San Francisco, CA.
CMLX is a certification program designed by the Council of Multiple Listing Services (CMLS) to identify skills, subject matter, and experience common to three levels of successful multiple listing service (MLS) management. With the creation of this program, CMLS hopes industry standards will be raised and codified and CMLS members will be able to follow a consistent program of professional development.
The CMLX certification credential is awarded to candidates who have passed the required certification courses and have met specified experience and membership requirements. CMLX designation recipients, like Specchio, are recognized for their professionalism, industry knowledge, training, and skills as identified by their peers in the MLS industry.
Upon completion of the CMLX Professional designation, Specchio gained a broad knowledge of all key components of an MLS, a general understanding of the distribution and protection of data and an awareness of the various governing and ownership models existing in the industry today.
The MLS industry is always evolving, and CMLX Certification is another step towards ensuring the industry thrives in the years ahead. Once again, congratulations to Shelley Specchio!
