CCIM ROI

When CCIMs utilize a combination of CCIM member benefits they get the deal done. Mark Van Ark, CCIM, of KW Commercial in Boulder, Colo., attributes a more than $2.5 million industrial deal he closed with Eric Rutherford, CCIM, of Wright Kingdom Realtors in Boulder to chapter networking and CCIM technology tools. “Without our local CCIM Chapter networking, the strength of this property would not have been evident to potential buyers,” says Van Ark. He represented MBL Land Co. LLC in the sale of the 38,700-sf industrial property in Broomfield, Colo., to Cloudburst LLC. Rutherford represented the buyer. When presented with STDB data, the buyer understood the value of the transaction and the duo was able to close the deal. “This transaction is a perfect example of an existing “have” being matched with a “need” that arises during the normal course of a CCIM’s practice,” says Van Ark.
