Accreditations, experience matter for Preferred Brokers

The recreational land sales experts in PotlatchDeltic’s Preferred Broker Network have deep experience. And in some cases, they have designations that are tangible reflections of their significant knowledge and skills.

One of the most significant designations is the title of Accredited Land Consultant (ALC) from the Realtors Land Institute. Jonathan Goode (Southeastern Land Group, Alabama), Tom Smith (Tom Smith Land and Homes, Mississippi) and Mark Knight (DDK Forestry & Real Estate, Arkansas) are all ALCs.

The Realtors Land Institute (RLI) requires more than 100 course hours of training to become an ALC. Applicants must also have significant experience: Goode, Smith and Knight, all members of the Preferred Broker Network, definitely fit that requirement, given that they are among the Southeast’s most successful rural real estate brokers, each in the top tier of their respective states for listing and sales

In addition to the ALCs in the PotlatchDeltic Network, other Preferred Brokers have designations and awards that speak to their skill and knowledge.

Tom Moore of Northwest Land & Lifestyle Properties in Idaho and Josh Barkhimer of Neeley Forestry Service in Arkansas are professional foresters. Earl Musick of United Country Musick & Sons in Idaho is an award-winning auctioneer, having won a statewide bid-calling competition. And JD Neeley of Neeley Forestry Service is on the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission and active in the Commission’s efforts to support conservation and wildlife.

So why does all this matter to recreational land buyers? Simple. An experienced recreational real estate pro is going to understand everything about a piece of rural property, from access to quality of wildlife to timber value.

All this experience helps a transaction go more smoothly, and it helps ensure that buyers are getting a recreational property that will work for them, their friends and their families. Contact one of our Preferred Broker Network experts today to get your sales journey underway.
