From CI 101 classmates to longtime friends, Nick Miner, CCIM, (right) of ORION Investment Real Estate in Tempe, Ariz., and Sean Bishop, CCIM, (left) of Lee & Associates in Phoenix originally met in 1999 at the CI 101 Financial Analysis course in Scottsdale, Ariz. Through that initial meeting, they formed a professional bond that turned into a friendship. Bishop even served as Miner's best man at his wedding.
Through the years, the two friends have completed countless commercial real estate deals together. Most recently, Miner and a partner represented Gilbert Fiesta II Lots 2 & 3 LLC in the $3.5 million sale of the 21,900-sf Gilbert Fiesta Shops in Gilbert, Ariz., to Grover Arizona LLC, represented by Bishop.
“CCIM education gives you that level of trust with other designees,” Bishop says. “You don't have to put on a front trying to figure out what the other side is thinking. Instead, you have two professionals that are just trying to get the job done for their clients.”
CCIM education and designation is the bedrock for maintaining Miner and Bishop's working and personal relationship, as demonstrated through the deals these two designees have completed together.
“Having CCIM behind your name shows that you took the time to become educated and experienced,” Miner says. “It gives you the credibility to compete against people that may not be CCIM designees, but have been in the business a longer time than yourself.”
With more deals in the works, Miner and Bishop both look forward to many more years of doing deals together.
