CCIM Feature

CCIM Connections(1)

If you’re not attending your local chapter meetings, you’re missing out on huge business networking opportunities. As Hayim Mizrachi, CCIM, of the Southern Nevada chapter says: “This organization commands involvement from the top level of professionals in our industry. Why not be a part of that?”

Commission Connection

I average about $20,000 per year in commissions from my chapter contacts.

— Eddie Blanton, CCIM, North Carolina Chapter

Job Link

Through a relationship I established with a chapter member, I landed my current job as a senior analyst with Jones Lang LaSalle.

— Kevin D. Block, CCIM, Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter

In-State ROI

Just to name a few: the $2 million sale of multitenant property in Cedar Rapids, the sale of several industrial lots at I-380 Industrial Park, and the lease of investor-owned property in Iowa City to CarQuest Auto Parts store.

— Bill Wittig, CCIM, Iowa Chapter

Market Recognition

I took a leadership position in my chapter and this resulted in greater recognition by other brokers. This, in turn, has resulted in better opportunities for selling/listing property and, ultimately, closed deals.

— Don Rudolph, CCIM, Florida Chapter, Central Florida District

Service Provider Leads

I have been able to refer my clients to other chapter members for related services such as property insurance, property management, roofing contractors, and others.

— Andy Hantges, CCIM, Southern Nevada Chapter

Help in Hard Times

In reaction to the recent catastrophic floods that hit the Nashville area, several chapter board of directors members sprang into action and arranged a program offering education and advice for building owners, property managers, and CRE professionals on how to handle and counsel their clients during disaster events. Speakers at the June 3 event included attorneys, business consultants, and CCIMs who either lived through or advised businesses affected by Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans.

— Phil Dildine, CCIM, Middle Tennessee Chapter

Regional Data

Charlotte, Raleigh, and Greensboro do annual forecast meetings with attendance in the hundreds. These meetings provide a great update on economic conditions.

— Cindy S. Chandler, CCIM, North Carolina Chapter

Deal Making

One year I closed on four multifamily properties co-oping with another chapter member.

— Jerry Hall, CCIM, Ohio Chapter

Ad Hoc Advice

I’ve met out-of-town brokers whom I could call when there was a political issue in our community. When faced with local legislation, it is nice to ask someone if their city has had that type of legislation, what to look out for, whether or not to support it, or how to make it better.”

— Robin Eschliman, CCIM, Nebraska Chapter

Leasing Opps

I was contacted by someone looking for CCIMs on my chapter Web site. It turned into a 3,600-sf office lease that was signed within 30 days.

— Michael A. Hendricksen, CCIM, Virginia Chapter
