Achieving the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation does more than simply tell people throughout the commercial real estate industry you’re ready to play with the big boys. It actually makes you ready to play with the big boys.
A Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) is a recognized expert in the disciplines of commercial and investment real estate. The designation, which is awarded by the Chicago-based CCIM Institute, is earned after brokers, leasing professionals, investment counselors, asset managers, appraisers, corporate real estate executives, property managers, developers, institutional investors, commercial lenders, attorneys, bankers and other allied professionals successfully complete a designation process that ensures they are proficient in both theory and practice.
Those who achieve designation become part of a global commercial real estate network with members across North America and in over 30 countries. This network has enabled CCIM members to close thousands of transactions annually, representing more than $200 billion in value.
