People who work hard and find success often get labeled as lucky. It’s easy to become jealous of those who are successful because it is hard to quantify exactly what effort it took for that individual to find success. Today we are talking with three successful land real estate agents who have worked hard to get there. Part of that work is the Accredited Land Consultant designation, which requires a plane trip, several days of coursework, and countless study hours. Ashley McCraney, Jim Fleissner, and Nicholas Ardis attended the Real Estate Land Institute’s ALC training as well as the APEX awards. Here’s the thing, they did not expect that one of them, Ashley McCraney, would win one of the most prestigious awards of the evening. Ashley was awarded as APEX 2022 National Broker of the Year in Agribusiness Sales by the REALTORS® Land Institute. This is a story of hard work from people who are doing it. This is a story of success. Don’t call these people lucky.
