LAS VEGAS, NV – May 8, 2013 – (RealEstateRama) — John Tarducci, Senior Vice President of the New Homes Division of William Raveis Real Estate, Mortgage & Insurance, was awarded the prestigious Master in Residential Marketing (MIRM) designation at the 2013 International Builders’ Show on January 21st.
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.
“It’s an honor to be recognized by the National Association of Home Builders and the Institute of Residential Marketing for all my work over the years,” said Tarducci. “All of the professionals in the New Homes Division of William Raveis are dedicated to serving the home building community with the utmost professionalism and a knowledge base unmatched anywhere else.

The award was presented at the annual convention of the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), where residential home builders and suppliers convene each year to learn about the most innovative building products and services available to the industry.
