Power of the Pin

Higher return on your commercial real estate

160. That’s the number of hours of intensive coursework and training that a CCIM receives, learning to predict the cash flow, IRR, and mortgage balances on your real estate. When you’re working through a complex transaction, a CCIM is your ally in unlocking value.

Competitive Advantage

The CCIM designation elevates the transaction professional to the role of investment specialist. In the San Diego market, the pin is a symbol of transactional experience combined with deep local knowledge.  Only 90 practitioners hold the CCIM designation across the San Diego region and CCIMs are involved in some of the region’s most notable transactions.

Connecting with the CCIM network means getting closer to the sources of capital and influence in the local market so you can scale your book of business, transitioning leasing assignment into investment sales or participating in deals as an equity partner. Our valuable cohort provides a powerful source of direct deals and referrals, fostered by our programs and networking events.

The value of ccim - a few words from our members

“I own a boutique commercial real estate company and sell investment properties nationwide.  It is a tremendous benefit to be able to reach out to a local CCIM in an out of state market, who I may have never met, to get valuable, accurate information.”  Ed Colson Jr., CCIM

“As a designee (Class of 2000), I most recently assisted a fellow CCIM and Trustee in selling an $8M, multi-tenant retail asset.  Utilizing the underwriting skills I had learned, I achieved the pricing expectations of the beneficiaries of the trust, within an acceptable marketing timeframe. The CCIM designation provides others with the confidence they need to select or refer a professional that is held to the highest education standard in the commercial real estate industry.”  Rick Puttkammer, CCIM
