acre

Here is my best explanation:

'the measure of land' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'a credit expert's beginning to' is the subsidiary indication.
'credit' becomes 'cr'.
'beginning to' suggests taking the first letters.
The first letter of 'expert' is 'e'.
'a'+'cr'+'e'='acre'

'get' is the link.
