About the Counselors of Real Estate


The Counselors of Real Estate, established in 1953, is an interna tional group of high profile professionals including members of prominent real estate, financial, legal and accounting firms as well as leaders of government and academia who provide expert, objective advice on complex real property situations and land-related matters.

Membership is selective, extended by invitation only on either a sponsored or self-initiated basis. The organization's CRE Designation (The Counselor of Real Estate) is awarded to all members in recognition of superior problem solving ability in various areas of specialization such as litigation support, asset management, valuation, feasibility studies, acquisitions/dispositions and general analysis.

CREs achieve results, acting in key roles in annual transactions and/or real estate decisions valued at over $41.5 billion. Over 300 of the Fortune 500 companies retain CREs for advice on real estate holdings and investments. CRE clients include public and private property owners, investors, attorneys, accountants, financial institutions, pension funds and advisors, government institutions, health care facilities, and developers.

Enrichment Through Networking, Education & Publications

Networking continues as the hallmark of The Counselor organization. Throughout the year, programs provide cuttingedge educational opportunities for CREs including seminars, workshops, technology sessions, and business issues forums that keep members abreast of leading industry trends. Meetings on both the local and national levels also promote interaction between CREs and members from key user groups including those specializing in financial, legal, corporate, and government issues.

CRE members benefit from a wealth of information published in The Counselors' tri-annual award-winning journal Real Estate Issues which offers decisive reporting on today's changing real estate industry. Recognized leaders contribute critical analyses not otherwise available on important topics such as institutional investment, sports and the community real estate ethics, tenant representation, break-even analysis, the environment, cap rates/yields, REITs, and capital formation. Members also benefit from the bi-monthly member newsletter, The Counselor, and a wide range of books and monographs published by The Counselor organization. A major player in the technological revolution, the CRE regularly accesses the most advanced methodologies, techniques and computer-generated evaluation procedures available.

What is a Counselor of Real Estate (CRE)?

A Counselor of Real Estate is a real estate professional whose primary business is providing expert advisory services to clients on a non-contingent fee basis or a performance fee under certain prescribed conditions. The counseling fee is rendered for advice given rather than for achievement or outcome of the transaction.
