Land Real Estate Professionals Gather to Gain Knowledge, Prestige

June 16, 2016 (Chicago) – Over ninety courses were attended by twenty-six real estate land professionals during the Realtors® Land Institute’s 2016 LANDU Education Week plus in Little Rock, Arkansas, last week. This annual event is an opportunity for real estate and land professionals from across the country to gain knowledge and take advantage of the camaraderie that in-person education provides. A record number of attendees took all six of RLI’s LAND University courses to fulfill the education requirement of the prestigious Accredited Land Consultant designation.

Jeffrey Hignight, a professional farm manager, real estate broker, and partner at Glaub Farm Management, LLC, was one of the six attendees to successfully complete all six courses towards earning the ALC Designation during this year’s event. He recommends industry professionals attend, saying “LANDU week was a wise investment worth both the money and time.  I have made wonderful new friends from all over and added tools that will help me throughout my agricultural asset management and real estate brokerage career.  I can’t wait to finish the ALC designation process”.

Courses offered during the one-week event included, Land 101: Fundamentals of Land Brokerage; Agricultural Land Brokerage and Marketing; Land Investment Analysis; Site Selection; Tax Deferred 1031 Exchanges; and Eminent Domain. All courses are also offered online throughout the year.
