What is a CCIM?
A CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) is a recognized expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. The CCIM lapel pin is earned after successfully completing a designation process that ensures CCIMs are proficient not only in theory, but also in practice. This elite corps of CCIMs includes brokers, leasing professionals, investment counselors, asset managers, appraisers, corporate real estate executives, property managers, developers, institutional investors, commercial lenders, attorneys, bankers, and other allied professionals.
A CCIM is part of a global commercial real estate network with members across North America and more than 30 countries.

How big is this place really? How was it measured? These are great questions to ask when comparing different properties. For example, should an outside terrace be given the same value as an enclosed air conditioned living space. What about the garage? Should this area be given a value equal to a fully equipped kitchen?
