Source: Leavitt Digital ccim-logo-four-colors-414x357Leavitt Digital recently caught up with David Wilson, CCIM, who was recently elected into office as CCIM President for 2018 and asked Wilson to explain the CCIM Organization. If you are wondering what a CCIM is, you aren’t alone! Only six percent (6%) of all commercial real estate practitioners wear the prestigious CCIM pin and have gone through the extensive educational program to become a CCIM Designee. CCIM stands for Certified Commercial Investment Member. Based in Chicago, IL, the CCIM Institute is an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS® and has approximately 13,000 members from 31 countries throughout the world.  CCIMs are trained experts who can analyze opportunities to help clients make confident, informed choices. Employing a data-driven approach to commercial real estate, CCIMs guide clients’ real estate decisions using financial and market analysis skills, combined with their own experience and knowledge of local and national markets. With a CCIM, clients have access to an educated, deliberate process. Although many people think that the CCIM membership is made up of only brokers that could not be further from the truth. Brokers represent about 39% of CCIM’s membership – a substantial number, but one that is well balanced with many other industry leaders.
