Those who take CCIM training share a common language and similar ways of approaching commercial real estate transactions.
“When you have two like-minded brokers that are knowledgeable and know what they are doing, then they can easily guide their client through the transaction,” says Drew Forness, CCIM (left), of Forness Properties in Winter Park, Fla. “If we didn’t have two great CCIMs working each side of the deal, I
don’t think the deal would have gone through.”
Forness recently represented Vine Street Plaza Investors in the $8 million purchase of the 61,255-sf Vine Street Plaza Center in Kissimmee, Fla., from Krause Family LLP represented by Lee Zerivitz (right), CCIM, SIOR, of CITY Commercial in Winter Park.
Zerivitz concurs that having the same CCIM training assisted in the completion of the sale.
“By telling my client that the buyer’s broker also is a CCIM provided an additional layer that we had selected the right purchaser,” Zerivitz says. “This always helps a seller have some comfort in knowing that the other broker knows what they’re doing when they tie the property up.”
Although CCIM education was not the source of the deal coming together, it undoubtedly assisted in closing the transaction. “If you’re dealing with someone competent on the other side of the deal, then it makes all the difference in the world in getting that sale to the finish line,”
Zerivitz recognizes that the CCIM designation and education are vital for his career. “Having a CCIM education shows a level of time and commitment to educating yourself,” he says, “that then creates end value to your client and the other broker.”
