About the Counselors of Real Estate


The Counselors of Real Estate, now in its 40th year, is an international 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 real property and land-related matters.

Membership is selective, extended by invitation only on either a self-initiated or sponsored 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, workouts, valuation, feasibility studies, acquisitions/dispositions and general analysis.

Throughout the year, educational programs provide Counselors with opportunities, both nationally and locally, to meet with fellow members and professional colleagues to discuss the latest trends affecting commercial real estate. A publications program, highlighted by our award winning professional journal, Real Estate Issues, provides a venue for members to showcase their knowledge of such areas as office buildings, retail centers, hotels/motels, real estate counseling , etc.
