I recently became a CCIM Candidate and thought I’d put up a little info on what that means. CCIM stands for Certified Commercial Investment Member – only 8,600 people in the world have this designation and here is why: It’s difficult and expensive and takes a lot of time. If you can get the designation in 2 years that would be considered very quick.
There are four week long courses taught in different places all around the world and you have to complete a substantial portfolio of work as well. Once you’ve done all that you get to take a final exam. The process has been likened to getting a PhD in Real Estate. See the details here. I recently finished CCIM 101: Financial Analysis and got 100% on my test – thereby becoming a candidate.
If you are thinking about Commercial or Investment property I can help you with the additional education, experience, and network of people and resources I now have available. If you are a residential agent I would be happy to help your client with their commercial needs.
