Deal Makers

Two Florida CCIMs formed a team in the $2.7 million sale of a retail strip center in Tampa, Fla. Ron Struthers, CCIM, of Coldwell Banker Commercial NRT in Punta Gorda, Fla., represented the buyer, and worked alongside Maryann Mize, CCIM, of Charlotte State Bank & Trust in Port Charlotte, Fla., and a partner. As a result, Mize closed a $1.9 million loan. “The CCIM connection Ron and I share made this transaction possible,” Mize says. “We routinely use the knowledge base of the CCIM core curriculum, powerful technology tools, and networking programs in our business.” Currently, Mize and Struthers are officers in the Southwest Florida District CCIM Chapter. Mize serves as CCIM senior instructor who also chairs the Institute’s Ward Center for Real Estate Studies Subcommittee and is a member of the Marketing Committee. “The CCIM experience means so much to me and my career,” she added. Struthers concurs and says, “The training I received in market assessment, decision-making, and investment analysis has proven invaluable, as have all of the connections I have made through CCIM.”
