Accredited Commercial Professional, originally the CCS Certified Commercial Specialist
The ACP course provides the agent with the fundamental commercial real estate terminology and essential intellectual resources needed by agents transitioning from the residential market into the commercial marketplace. This course study and designation will assist agents in working knowledgeably and professionally with commercial real estate brokers, agents, managers, sellers, buyers and leasing clients.
Real Estate agents with professional designations have a distinct competitive advantage over their non-designated peers because of increased expertise and marketability. Based on 2010 survey data from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR), the median income of REALTORS® with at least one designation was 43% more than the median income of those without a designation.
