Steven R. Price, CCIM, Awarded Prestigious Service Award
Colorado Real Estate Professional honored by CCIM Institute.
Steven R. Price, CCIM, was honored with the prestigious Jay W. Levine Award for Distinguished Service by CCIM Institute. Price was honored during CCIM Institute's Midyear Governance Meetings at the Fairmont Chicago in Chicago. A commercial real estate broker from Colorado Springs, Colo., Price has been an integral part of CCIM Institute since 1987.
Created in 1996, the award commemorates the late Jay W. Levine, one of the founders of CCIM Institute, and recognizes outstanding contributions by individual CCIMs for their long-time service to the organization. This award, whose first recipient was Levine himself, has only been awarded six more times since its inception.
“Although now retired from the instructor cadre, Steve has dedicated much of his professional life serving CCIM Institute both on the faculty and as a past president,” says 2017 CCIM Institute President Robin L. Webb, CCIM. “His contributions to CCIM Institute have been tremendous and the award is a fitting tribute in the year Steve has chosen to retire from the faculty.”
Price's contributions to CCIM Institute have included serving as a CCIM Senior Instructor, selecting and mentoring new instructors, serving on numerous committees, chairing the Budget Committee and Education Committee, and serving as CCIM Institute President in 2006.
“He wants every student to demonstrate the passion he has,” says CCIM Institute Senior Instructor William H. Moss, CCIM. “I have experienced Steve's enthusiasm for CCIM being absorbed by students to the point they not only earn their pin but get totally involved with what CCIM is all about.”
Price has been honored as the 1999 CCIM Institute Instructor of the Year, as the 2001 recipient of the Victor L. Lyon Award for outstanding contributions to CCIM Institute's education program, and as the 2003 CI 101 Senior Instructor of the Year.
“It's a tremendous honor and extremely humbling,” says Price. “Although I retired from teaching CCIM courses in 2016, I hope to continue to help develop CCIM course materials and mentor CCIM instructors, passing along my experience to instructors and students alike.”
