114The Scholarship award didn’t just provide me with financial support for my education, it gave me the confidence that someone believed in me when people said you’re crazy to think you can sell nothing but land you will starve. I did 10 million in land sales volume the next year.

I greatly appreciate the scholarship that I received through the Land Education Foundation. My future career goals include either farm and ranch appraisal or brokerage.This scholarship has helped tremendously and I am grateful for the generosity shown to me from the REALTORS Land Institute and the Land Education Foundation. Thank you, again for your support and educating future real estate professionals.

The scholarship received from the Foundation benefited the chapter by adding more exposure to the Education programs. Scholarship recipient, Mark Bradbury, completed the Land Investment Analysis course and is now a Director on the board of the Texas chapter and is completing his education for the ALC designation.

I was very excited to have won the LEF course in Vegas. As a member of RLI for over 2 years, it is apparent that the ALC designation is well worth the time and effort. Land brokers with the ALC designation truly lead the pack. From my observation, the ALC is quite an exclusive group that enjoys a strong and educated network and the sharing of great ideas related to land brokerage. Additionally, ALC’s enjoy greater exposure as many developers and other land professionals will seek out ALC’s to bring to them the specialized skills that they may be seeking – this translates to additional business and is one of the many reasons I have started working towards my completion of the ALC.

Michael Kennedy, Colorado chapter member

Unique and relevant land education is invaluable to the land brokerage practitioner. The course LEF provided the Iowa RLI Chapter helps the chapter provide tangible benefits to its members, and to land brokers
