Why I am a CCIM

Jason Woodward, MBA, CCIM


  "CCIM is THE recognized commercial real estate professional designation and the only one I see advertised in Alaska. It represents a commitment to professional development through education. Additionally, in order to hold the designation you must validate your experience level to a board of your peers and the bar is set fairly high. The consumer knows when working with a CCIM they have choose a commercial professional who is educated AND experienced. Lastly, I appreciate that in order to retain the CCIM designation you must also adhere to an ethical standard. I feel the importance of business ethics is sometimes lost in industry and having a written standard is important. Overall, I find more industry specific value to holding the CCIM designation than I do from my MBA."

Bob Martin, CCIM



Education - The CCIM Institute is the industry’s gold standard in providing on-going teaching and training to commercial real estate professionals around the world.


Resources - Through CCIM membership, agents have access to an amazing array of innovative business resources including cash flow analysis, trade area assessment, target marketing, site evaluation and much more.


Networking - It is the CCIM Institute’s core mission statement to provide commercial real estate professionals with networking and business development opportunities. Their “DealShare” and “Open Forum” are excellent examples.

Hugh Wade, CCIM

  "In this field, all we have is what is between our ears, and our time. That’s what we are selling. I knew that CCIM provided the best route for me to improve my knowledge, to become a cut above the average bear, fairly quickly. So I embraced the challenge. I recognized that it was a way to ramp up, quickly, and essentially leapfrog a lot of years and stature, in what was then a down market. It paid off."
