What Our Accredited Land Consultants (ALCs) and Texas Chapter Members Say

Cathy Cole, ALC & Past President RLI Texas Chapter

Knowledge is key and I truly believe you have to know what you are selling. You have to understand the dirt. You have to experience the space, smell, sweat, and tears of working in the   specialized field of land sales. Joining RLI has taught me so much, and becoming an ALC has given me the strength of knowledge.
