CCIM Grants Award to Northeast Ohio Commercial Real Estate Firm

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Troy Gerspacher, President of the Gerspacher Real Estate Group, Inc., has achieved the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) specification from the CCIM Institute, one of the dominant commercial real estate associations in the world. The designation was awarded on October 21, 2010, at the association’s annual business conferences in Orlando, Florida.

Gerspacher was among a record group of 549 commercial real estate practitioners who earned the recognition by passing the CCIM Comprehensive Examination, the ultimate piece in the designation process. Only roughly 6% of the estimated 150,000 commercial real estate practitioners in the nation have received the CCIM designation, which communicates not only the character of the program, but why it is one of the most fancied and respected recognitions in the industry. James A. Gerspacher, Troy’s uncle and previous owner of James Gerspacher Real Estate, also has received this recognition.

The CCIM specification is given to commercial real estate practitioners upon favorable fulfillment 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 bases of commercial investment real estate. CCIMs are known experts in commercial real estate brokerage, leasing, asset management, valuation, and investment analysis. Since 1969, the Chicago-based CCIM Institute has given the Certified Commercial Investment Member recognition to commercial real estate and allied professionals via a pervasive program of 200 classroom hours and professional experiential requirements. Currently, there are over 9,000 CCIMs in 1,000 places throughout the United States, Canada, and 30 additional countries. An additional 7,000 specialists are seeking the designation, making the institute the governing association of one of the biggest commercial real estate networks in the world.  An affiliate of the National Association of Realtors®, the CCIM Institute’s recognized curriculum, powerful technology tools, and networking programs impact and influence the commercial real estate industry.
