What Does it Mean to "Practice Consulting?"
In order to accurately attest that you are, indeed, "practicing consulting," here's exactly what that means from an ACRE perspective:
1. You use a consultative approach with your clients, as opposed to a sales approach; and
2. You offer at least two alternative consulting services and/or compensation choices aside from traditional listing and selling services paid by contingent commission.
If you attest to both of the above on your ACRE profile (see My Account), you will be identified as a "practicing consultant" on the ACRE Locator. If you do not, you will be identified as a "non-practicing consultant." You may update your status at any time and if you attest "Yes" you will be required to re-attest at six month intervals.
