Congratulations to Our New Accredited Land Consultants

Southeastern Land Group would like to congratulate Jeffrey Hardy and John Hardin on earning the prestigious Accredited Land Consultant designation. Land brokers and agents who earn the Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) designation have demonstrated intense commitment to their profession by completing 104 hours of land specific education from the Realtors Land Institute (RLI) and closing over $10 million in land transactions. Currently there are only about 506 Realtors in the whole country and only about 20 in Alabama that have earned their ALC designation. Southeastern Land Group now has 5 ALC’s: Dave Milton, Jack Gabriel, Jeffrey Hardy, John Hardin, and Jonathan Goode.

Jeffrey explains his decision to earn the designation, “I chose to pursue the ALC designation to stand out among the growing number of Realtors in my area.  I wanted to provide the best service and knowledge I could to my clients and customers.” Jack Gabriel describes his experience as an ALC as follows, “As an ALC  you have proven that you are not only a land professional, but you are an expert. This coveted designation means that you have met rigorous criteria to be considered one of the best land agents in the country. The ALC designation earns you the respect of sellers and buyers, and leads to wonderful opportunities for networking to coop deal deals with other ALCs and gain referrals of legitimate clientele. I would say achieving the goals to meet the demands for your ALC is the best thing you can do for your career as a land agent. It has lead to big and small deals for me, but most importantly it has lead to wonderful relationships with peers and clients.”

John reflects on the multi-year process of earning the designation, “The Realtors Land Institute provided me with the education, tools, service, advice and future networking opportunities that are the foundation for all land professionals to become the best in the business – to become an Accredited Land Consultant”. Dave Milton, founder of Southeastern Land Group, enthusiastically commended them on their hard-earned achievement, by saying, “I want to congratulate Jeffrey Hardy and John Hardin on becoming Accredited Land Consultants.  Both of these men are already outstanding professionals, and are already recognized as two of the finest Land-focused Realtors in the South.  The ALC designation just amplifies their status as leaders in our company and throughout the broader land sales industry.  Most importantly, John and Jeffrey are both selfless and giving in the three most important roles in their lives which are: daily being outstanding fathers, husbands, and friends.

Southeastern Land Group works hard to be the best full-time land brokerage company in the Southeast. By being active members of the national Realtors Land Institute and Alabama’s RLI chapter, our team stays engaged with everything happening in the land industry.
