Calvin Coolidge said, “All growth depends upon activity. There is no development physically or intellectually without effort, and effort means work.”
Coolidge knew that in order to stay ahead of the curve, it is critical that we continue to learn and grow; and, further, avoid becoming complacent.
The strife for constant improvement is especially critical in this time of market uncertainty. Fortunately, Omni Realty understands the importance of seizing opportunities for growth and education. We are proud to announce that Mike Kushner will take his exam for the CCIM designation next month – having completed all the other requirements including coursework, portfolio, recommendations from clients, other CCIM members and the CCIM Chapter Representative.
CCIM stands for Certified Commercial Investment Member. The CCIM designation provides global recognition and leadership in commercial and investment real estate education and services. CCIM members are part of a knowledgeable group of real estate professionals who look to further their business practices through education, networking, and ethical conduct. A CCIM is the hallmark of competency, affording members an undisputed competitive advantage and the highest standard of credibility.
There are numerous advantages to having a CCIM represent you in a commercial real estate transaction. Among other attributes, a CCIM is:
- Knowledgeable in theory and application
- Equipped with industry-leading technology
- Connected to a global membership network
- Ethical and committed to upholding the prestige of the CCIM designation
- Equipped with the latest news and information
- Dedicated to serving clients
The CCIM designation belongs to only 9,000 elite members who have earned the professional designation awarded by the CCIM Institute. There are approximately 10,000 candidates currently pursuing the designation.
In a message to CCIM candidates and members last week, 2011 CCIM President Frank Simpson said, “I feel grateful to be part of an international network of proven professionals who bring an exceptional level of real-world experience, market knowledge and negotiation skills to each client assignment.”
As Coolidge said, growth depends on activity which is dependent upon effort… and effort means work. Who’s working hard for you?
