Jeep Rackley Earns Coldwell Banker Global Luxury Property Specialist Designation

San Antonio, TX, January 2017 — Jeep Rackley, REALTOR®, CLHMS, of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS® has earned the Coldwell Banker Global Luxury™ Property Specialist designation, according to Leesa Harper Rispoli, President of Coldwell Banker D’Ann Harper, REALTORS®. To date, only ten percent of the more than 88,000 sales associates affiliated with the Coldwell Banker® brand have been awarded this designation. “In addition to performance-based criteria on successfully selling luxury properties, Rackley had to complete a prescribed certification course to earn the Luxury Property Specialist designation,” said Leesa Harper Rispoli.

Launched in early 2017, the Coldwell Banker Global LuxurySM program legacy traces its roots to Coldwell Banker Previews International® and the Previews® program, a leader in luxury real estate since 1933. The Coldwell Banker Global Luxury certification course creates a standardized education model to help the newest generation of luxury agents meet and exceed the expectations of high-net-worth clients. In order to participate in the course, participating agents must meet strict production guidelines — “Some of the most rigorous standards in the industry today.” says Craig Hogan, Vice President of Luxury at Coldwell Banker Real Estate, LLC. Certification renewal is also required every 24 months, to ensure Luxury Property Specialists are up to date on new technologies, programs, and best practices.

Born Gene Rackley, Jeep is a third generation Boerne native. He has been a licensed REALTOR® serving Boerne and the surrounding Hill Country since 1997 with nearly 20 years industry experience. His past real estate experience in locations such as Costa Rica and Belize have cultivated Jeep’s repertoire for luxury clientele. When Jeep is not working he enjoys spending time with his family. Recently he worked with local charities helping Rockport families affected by Hurricane Harvey.
