RLI Inducts 2017 National President with Plans for a Year of Change

December 1, 2016 (Chicago) –The REALTORS® Land Institute is proud to announce that Louisiana REALTOR® Brandon Rogillio, ALC, of Rogillio Real Estate in Baton Rouge, LA, was officially inducted as the 2017 RLI National President in Orlando last week alongside the 2016 NAR Convention & Expo.

Rogillio will be taking over after a year of big changes under 2017 President Bob Turner, ALC. Brandon is determined to continue increasing the value of an RLI membership, ensuring the Accredited Land Consultant designation remains the most elite and prestigious in the industry, and reinvigorating RLI as a member-centric organization.

Rogillio is the owner/broker of Rogillio Real Estate in Baton Rouge, LA, and began practicing real estate as a profession while studying economics at Southeastern Louisiana University. In the spring of 2009, he earned the Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation, an indication of the most accomplished, experienced, educated, and highest performing land expert in the country. He has completed the rigorous LANDU education program and has a proven track record of strong transaction performance.

Among the marketplace, Rogillio is one of the most respected and trusted land experts. He is extremely involved in his community and has played a large role in the recovery of the affected parts of Louisiana after devastating floods swept through the area earlier this year.

Upon being inducted as the 2017 RLI National President, Brandon expressed his positive outlook for the organization’s future saying, “We’ve made a lot of changes over the past year to set us up for success in 2017 and beyond. I plan to continue building upon that foundation to enhance member benefits and value for our land professionals. I look forward to serving our membership and watching it grow as we welcome new members into our community of the best land real estate professionals in the business.”

Over the past eight years, Rogillio held several RLI leadership roles including serving as the Representative to the National Association of REALTORS® Commercial Committee, an active member of the RLI Government Affairs Committee, the 2011 Co-Chair of RLI’s annual National Land Conference, and serving on the RLI Board of Directors for the past three years. Brandon is currently the only REALTOR® in Louisiana to hold both the esteemed ALC and CCIM designations.
