Lasting Partnerships

President's Desk


For more than 50 years, CCIM Institute has focused on developing connections, increasing networking opportunities, and building relationships. Like a virtual web, CCIM Institute continues to connect members and create international outreach through education partners in nine countries.

It is worth repeating that members come to CCIM Institute for the education but stay for the networking. While more than 50 percent of CCIM members are brokers, 22 percent of our members have completed a deal with another CCIM during the past year.

A substantial percentage of CCIM members are developers and property owners who connect with each other and the brokerage community. Finally, 25 percent of members cross all lines within the industry as attorneys, CPAs, and lenders. Enabling connections is how CCIM Institute continually strives to elevate our members to the highest levels of success in the commercial real estate profession. 

To date, the South Korean CCIM Chapter is the largest CCIM chapter with 31 new designees and more than 1,200 members. The CCIM designation continues to be the global standard for professional achievement.

Lastly, CCIM Institute partners with some of the most prominent firms in the commercial real estate arena. For technology, CCIM Institute partners include ESRI, a global demographic and GIS firm; Xceligent, known for its data analytics research; and Ten-X, recognized for its platform providing a global distribution network for transactions.

These connections reach deeper through professional real estate organizations such as SIOR, IREM, RICS, and NAR, providing CCIM members with access to the entire spectrum of the commercial real estate industry.

Now is the time to cultivate connections in the U.S. and globally through the power of your CCIM pin.
