At CMS Real Estate, Owner and President Gerry Macdonald is a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM), an industry-standard that places members as some of the most advanced commercial real estate investment specialists anywhere. Fewer than 10% of commercial real estate investors and advisors hold the CCIM distinction, making it a valuable and noble acronym to have.
As a brokerage company focused on industrial and commercial property sales in Calgary, here’s what being a CCIM means for our clients.
The CCIM Institute has been the leader in commercial real estate and professional development for more than 50 years, setting a high standard in the industry for performance, knowledge, compensation, and other key metrics. Being a CCIM is commercial real estate’s most coveted credential, as it recognizes the top experts in the industry, including brokers, leasing professionals, investment counsellors, asset managers, appraisers, corporate real estate executives, property managers, developers, institutional investors, commercial lenders, attorneys, bankers, and other allied professionals.
To become a CCIM candidate, commercial real estate professionals must have worked in the commercial real estate industry for at least two years and submit a Portfolio of Qualifying Experience to demonstrate that requirements have been fulfilled for the designation. CCIM candidates complete a rigorous program of advanced courses and training and must complete and pass an exam to receive the CCIM designation.
When you choose a company or broker that has a CCIM designation, you’re choosing some of the most knowledgeable and experienced professionals in the industry. The process for becoming a CCIM ensures that professionals are not only proficient in theory but also in practice. According to the CCIM Institute, CCIMs average 42% more transactions annually than a typical brokerage specialist.
Through research, CCIMs statistically outperform other commercial real estate professionals with:
Beyond the credential, the CCIM Institute is the industry’s largest network of experts. A CCIM has access to resources to help grow and develop real estate’s future workforce and maintain a high standard within their practice.
