About Us

Recognized Leaders in Commercial Investment Real Estate

CCIM Institute created the language of global real estate. 50 years after it was founded, the organization still provides its 13,000  members across 50 chapters with the financial tools and processes of the international CRE industry.

Only six percent of all commercial real estate practitioners hold the coveted CCIM designation so joining CCIM San Diego means being part of an elite cohort of practitioners. Our membership is made up of commercial real estate specialists and allied professionals from across the globe. Each member has a different story to tell. But one thing unites us all – the CCIM pin.


CCIM San Diego Chapter provides real estate owners, managers, brokers, lenders and other commercial real estate professionals with a distinct industry advantage through education and networking programs that promote the highest levels of excellence, competency and collaboration.

The CCIM pin represents a 50-year legacy of investment analysis and fiduciary-level professionalism in all phases of the commercial real estate transaction. Our members are part of that legacy.
