I am happy to share with you that I have been awarded the Certified Commercial Investment Member designation by CCIM Institute. The designation was awarded during a pinning ceremony on April 4 during CCIM Institute’s Midyear Governance Meetings at the Fairmont, in Chicago.

I was among 164 designees honored by CCIM Institute and their local chapter members. The new CCIMs have varying years of experience and work in all aspects of the commercial real estate profession. They hail from 36 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, as well as five new CCIM designees from Canada and one from Germany.

I started to pursue the CCIM designation program back in year 2005 and now I am one of the Board Members of CCIM San Diego Chapter.
