The Power of the Pin
CCIM Institute is commercial real estate's value creation organization. A global community of 13,000 members, more than 50 chapters, and 30 countries, CCIM educates and connects the world's leading experts in investment strategy, financial analysis, and market analysis.
Through the Institute's signature designation program-real estate's most coveted credential-and its topical education courses offered through the Ward Center for Real Estate Studies, CCIM has elevated real estate professionals to the highest reaches of the industry. We do this through a comprehensive curriculum based on practical knowledge, and instructors who are themselves industry leaders.
Today, almost 70 percent of designees hold the title of owner, partner, principal, or president, representing an exclusive worldwide referral network. In addition, CCIM offers its members the industry's best technology platform, allowing entrepreneurial and mid-sized businesses to compete with the largest multinational providers.
"It's a wonderful time to be new in commercial real estate ... and certainly organizations like CCIM can help train someone in the industry," says the President of NAI Global, Jay Olshonsky.
