New Directory of Certified Home Sales Professionals Debuts
The new, online Certified New Home Sales Professional Directory has recently debuted on the NAHB Web site so others in the home building industry can easily and quickly find experts in new home sales who have the CSP designation in their area.
The directory was created by NAHB’s Institute of Residential Marketing (IRM), which offers four professional designations in sales and marketing.
The Certified New Home Sales Professional (CSP) designation is an industry-recognized designation program available through The NAHB University of Housing. CSP was designed for specialists in new home sales to enhance their professional image, increase their marketability in the home building industry and sell more homes.
