About The Accredited Consultant in Real Estate® (ACRE) Designation Program
In late 2011, the highly respected Accredited Consultant in Real Estate (ACRE) program founded by Mollie Wasserman was acquired by SWS and incorporated into SWS as a separate, yet fully integrated division. The
ACRE Certification program is now offered exclusively at SWSUniversity.
But if you're
asking "What the heck is an Accredited Consultant in Real Estate?" well, let us tell you about it! An Accredited Consultant in Real Estate is a real estate practitioner who believes in
offering real estate consumers transparent CHOICES when it comes to the services they receive and how they pay for those services. An Accredited Consultant in Real Estate® recognizes that the
traditional real estate compensation structure of being paid a contingent fee based on the sales price of the product they "sell" (more on THAT later!) does not always serve the best
interests of the buyer or seller, nor, for that matter, the best interests of the real estate practitioner.
An Accredited Consultant in Real Estate also realizes that not all real estate consumers need (or want to pay for) the "full package" of services that our industry currently typically
offers, and therefore creates alternative products and services to best fit the needs of each individual client. And finally, because an Accredited Consultant in Real Estate® has the desire
and ability to customize both his or her offerings and fees, he (or she) enjoys far more opportunities to serve the real estate needs of the consumers in his (or her) community!
That's just a taste of what The Accredited Consultant in Real Estate approach is all about, but of course there's more.. much more. To learn more about Real Estate Consulting, click here
