Accredited Land Consultants (ALC) are the recognized experts in land brokerage transactions of five specialized types:
Farms and ranches
Undeveloped tracts of land
Transitional and development land
Subdivision and wholesaling of lots
Site selection and assemblage of land parcels
The Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation is important for many reasons. First, the designation is awarded by the Board of Directors to members who have completed a comprehensive program of education and service to the Institute. Only ALC's may use the accredited logo in their brokerage correspondence and marketing pieces.
Second, ALC's constitute a network of recognized specialists throughout the United States. ALC's serve the public in its need for land related real estate services. ALC's ensure that clients will find the best possible parcel for farming, development, recreation and a myriad of other specialized uses. The ALC network is a valuable resource for buyers and sellers.
As land professionals, ALC's know current market values. They work diligently to secure the best sale or purchase price for their clients. Also, ALC's assist buyers and sellers in such areas as finance, leasing and land management. To be safe, secure and satisfied, buyers and sellers are encouraged to work with an accredited real estate professional.
