For the many experienced real estate people who can't find enough to do in today's depressed markets, an interesting new career opportunity is opening up in the growing field of professional real estate counseling, until recently the exclusive occupation of a few acknowledged experts.

Now, thanks to an unusually candid and complete new book, the trade secrets of this little-known profession are available for the first time to anyone who has enough real estate savvy to profit from them. The book's title -- Real Estate Counseling in a Plain Brown Wrapper -- sets the tone and describes the contents. Professionals who seek only to improve their incomes with part-time consulting will find valuable help between its plain brown covers. So will qualified brokers, architects, developers, real estate lawyers and commercial mortgage lenders who are currently looking for another full-time occupation.

In his witty and candid style, author Jared Shlaes, CRE, director of special real estate services for Arthur Andersen and a nationally recognized authority in his field, provides fundamental steps on how to build, promote and manage a successful real estate counseling practice.

How-to chapters cover the functions important to counselors -- marketing, bidding, selling, risk management contracts, office design and operation, client handling and report writing. Tips, insights and checklists provide information not just to real estate specialists but to anyone who is in the consulting field or thinking about it.
