The highly coveted award, considered the most prestigious certification offered by the National Association of Home Builders and the Institute of Residential Marketing, recognizes the recipient’s top level achievement in new construction marketing. As part of an arduous application process, MIRM candidates must complete multiple courses with exams and submit an in-depth case study on a successfully marketed new home community. Similar to a master’s level thesis, the case study is peer-reviewed by a panel of judges. Candidates must also meet certain thresholds in sales production and management.
