CCIM Designation is Commercial Real Estate’s Global Standard for Professional Achievement.
CHICAGO, April 18, 2017 — The Washington State CCIM Chapter has recognized two chapter members who recently earned the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation, the global standard for professional achievement, from the CCIM Institute. Headquartered in Chicago, CCIM Institute is one of the largest commercial real estate networks worldwide.
CCIM’s newest 164 designees were honored by CCIM Institute and their local chapter members during a pinning ceremony on April 4 during CCIM Institute’s Midyear Governance Meetings at the Fairmont Chicago in Chicago.
Representing the Washington State Chapter were Scott Gilson with NorthMarq Capital, Bellevue, and Jason Joiner, Managing Broker with Windermere Commercial, Whidbey Island.
The CCIM designation is considered the most rigorous commercial real estate professional designation to obtain due to extensive coursework, a peer-reviewed commercial portfolio, and a final comprehensive exam lasting six hours. Five years is the average time to complete the CCIM designation requirements.
At the pinning ceremony, 2017 CCIM Institute President Robin L. Webb, CCIM, recognized the “different journey that each designee took to get to this point in their careers.”
