Staff Contact: Rachel Trice

The Sales & Marketing Council was designed to raise the level of professionalism in the sales and marketing of new homes. The SMC offers Certified New Homes Sales Professional (CSP) courses, Institute of Residential Marketing certification courses, and continuing education credits toward real estate license renewal. The annual membership fee of $75 (in addition to your basic HBA dues) includes membership in the National SMC and a subscription to the National Sales Marketing Council IDEAS magazine.

Continuing Education


Joining the HBA has been one of the most gratifying and rewarding experiences of my career. That involvement has also been a key factor in my company’s growth over the past decade.
