AARE Auctioneer


The Accredited Auctioneer Real Estate (AARE) professional designation was created to provide Auctioneers with custom education and advanced training in the selling of real estate at auction. The AARE designation communicates to prospective clients and buyers that the Auctioneer is committed to continuing education and can ethically and professionally prosecute a real estate at auction.

To attain the AARE designation, candidates must complete 42 hours of classroom training in the following areas:
  • Real Estate Auctions: residential, commercial, industrial, agricultural
  • Marketing and advertising techniques
  • Financial/investment calculations
  • Evaluating cash flow
  • Holding-period analysis
  • Tax consequences of buying and selling properties
AARE candidates must complete all three levels of the program (AARE 100, AARE 200, AARE 300). After completion of classroom training, candidates must submit a detailed written auction summary report and proof of at least 10 real estate auctions. Auctioneers must complete 24 hours of continuing education every three years and pay an annual designation fee to maintain their AARE designation.
