Certified Commercial Investment Member

One of the certifications that I am most proud of is my CCIM designation. This designation is gained only by real estate agents who pursue an intensive graduate-level curriculum in real estate theory and practice.

What is a CCIM?

A Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) is a recognized professional in commercial real estate brokerage, leasing, asset management, valuation, and investment analysis. As an experienced expert, a CCIM is an invaluable resource to the commercial real estate owner, investor, and user.

Only 4% of the estimated 125,000 commercial real estate practitioners nationwide hold the CCIM designation, which reflects not only the caliber of the program, but why it is one of the most coveted and respected designations in the industry.

Training

The Commercial Investment Real Estate Institute (CIREI), through its education program, has been conferring the CCIM designation since 1969. The 240 hours of graduate-level curriculum leading to the designation represent the finest education available in real estate. Professional experience requirements ensure that a CCIM is skilled not only in theory, but also in practice.
