COLDWELL BANKER COMMERCIAL ANNOUNCES THREE NEW CCIM DESIGNATION RECIPIENTS
Achievement Signifies Expertise in Commercial Real Estate
MADISON, NJ (June 14, 2021) – Coldwell Banker Commercial announced today that three of the brand’s brokerage professionals, Michael Salik, Virginia “Ginny” Squire and Rob Thomas, were awarded the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation by the CCIM Institute, one of the leading commercial real estate associations in the world.
Along with 200+ commercial real estate professionals from around the world, the Coldwell Banker Commercial professionals earned the designation by passing the CCIM Comprehensive Examination, the final component and capstone in the designation process. One of the most coveted and respected designations in the industry, only 6 percent of the estimated 150,000 commercial real estate practitioners nationwide have achieved the CCIM designation, reflecting the caliber of the program.
The CCIM designation is awarded to commercial real estate professionals upon successful completion of a graduate-level education curriculum and presentation of a portfolio of qualifying experience. The curriculum addresses financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, and investment analysis, the cornerstones of commercial investment real estate. CCIMs are recognized experts in commercial real estate brokerage, leasing, asset management, valuation, and investment analysis.
Michael Salik is affiliated with Coldwell Banker Commercial Premier Properties in Saint Augustine, Fla. Virginia “Ginny” Squire is managing broker for Coldwell Banker Commercial Custom Realty in Rochester, N.Y. and is president of the New York State Commercial Association of Realtors’ Rochester, N.Y. chapter. Rob Thomas is affiliated with Coldwell Banker Commercial Metro Brokers in Atlanta, Ga. and has over 15-years combined experience in office, retail, warehouse, land and other commercial real estate transactions.
“Coldwell Banker Commercial’s dedication to service, integrity and education closely aligns with the CCIM philosophy and curriculum. We have more CCIM designees than any other commercial brokerage in the world,” according to Dan Spiegel, managing director for Coldwell Banker Commercial.
Since 1969, the Chicago-based CCIM Institute has conferred the Certified Commercial Investment Member designation to commercial real estate and allied professionals through an extensive curriculum of 200 classroom hours and professional experiential requirements.
