Timothy Scott Hatlestad

It is with great sadness that we report the passing of Tim Hatlestad, 2008 CCIM President and a long time RE/MAX Broker/Owner of RE/MAX Achievers and president of RE/MAX Commercial Investment in Scottsdale, Ariz. A memorial service was held in his honor on November 21, 2011, in Phoenix, Arizona.

Tim, originally from Fargo, North Dakota, started his real estate career in 1983 and was known as an innovator among his peers and had a distinguished resume, serving as President of the CCIM Institute in 2008 and President of the Arizona Association of REALTORS in 2005. Tim was honored as REALTOR of the Year by the Arizona Association of REALTORS, and was the recipient of the Vision Award, which recognized him as the “best prepared real estate practitioner with the highest standards.” Tim, as a CCIM instructor, was recipient of all of the major award recognitions that an instructor could aspire to attain.

A loving father, husband, and leader, he is survived by his beloved wife, Keri, daughter Morgan, his son Griffin, his mother Pauline, and his sisters, Joan and Pam. He was honored to spend time with the members of the La Casa de Cristo Men’s Ministry as well as its high school youth group. All of those privileged to know him will miss him and cherish their eternal memories of his life. Donations in his memory can be made directly to the church to be used for scholarships.

In addition the CCIM Institute and the Education Foundation are joining together to establish and provide the first $10,000 towards the “Hatlestad Scholarship Fund.” Individual or corporate donations can be made to the “Education Foundation of the CCIM Institute” with the notation of Timothy S. Hatlestad, CCIM. Send in care of the Education Foundation, 430 N. Michigan Avenue, Suite 800, Chicago, IL 60611. It is felt that because of Tim’s passion for education both as an instructor and practitioner, that this is an appropriate way to honor him. The scholarship fund is being established to assist students who have been devastated by personal tragedies with assistance in payment of tuition and/or other educational expenses.

We ask you keep all Tim’s family, friends, and business associates in your thoughts and prayers. He will be missed by everyone who knew him.
