Local Realtor Awarded CCIM Scholarship
By Flora Pappas
The Certified Commercial Investment Member
designation, established originally by the
California Association of Realtors in 1954
as a Certified Property Exchanger, was
renamed to CCIM in 1969 when a council was
established to administer the designation. A
CCIM is a recognized expert in the disciplines
of commercial and investment real estate.
Nationwide, only six percent of the estimated
125,000 commercial real estate practitioners
hold the CCIM designation.
The CCIM curriculum represents the core
knowledge expected of commercial investment
petitioners. Four core courses incorporate
the essential CCIM skill sets, including
financial analysis, market analysis, user
decision analysis and investment analysis
for commercial investment real estate. At the
conclusion of all course work, candidates must
submit a resume of closed transactions and/or
consultations showing a depth of experience in
the field. In addition, they must successfully
complete a comprehensive exam to receive
CCIM designation, ensuring that CCIMs are
proficient in theory and practice.

Designation Scholarship was awarded to four
people throughout the United States, including
