As you may know, back in November, I took over as Commander in Chief of the ACRE (Accredited Consultant in Real Estate) program with the full blessing of ACRE founder, Mollie Wasserman. (You can read more about the baton-passing here.)
Since November, we've been working feverishly behind the scenes on what we're calling (oh-so-cleverly) ACRE 2.0 which includes a new look and brand, a new website and two new designation programs. We're making great progress and are hoping to have everything ready to launch around the first of April.
More details will be released soon, but here's a summary of what's coming...
- A fully renovated ACRE Designation course which takes a hands-on, apply-what-you're-learning approach to real estate consulting so that when students finish the course, they are pretty much ready to Go Forth and Consult;
- A new consulting-related designation course that includes a competence component - telling the world that the designee takes this career seriously and is committed to providing competent, even exceptional client service;
- A new, easy-to-navigate website with a public and private forum, member map and locator, resource library, consumer material, searchable blog archive and more (it's looking goooood!).
