Presidents Message (2017)

Presidents Message (2017)

It is with great honor and privilege that I serve as the 2017 Idaho CCIM Chapter President.  I must admit a very personal connection to CCIM, which is my late Grandfather became an honorary member in 1969 when CCIM expanded from its roots in California across the United States.  Like many people who witnessed the Great Depression, Granddaddy Don, was an extremely hard worker and he loved the real estate business.  He was the most gregarious and honorable person I knew and was one heck of a story teller.  Is there any wonder CCIM wanted him as an ambassador?

 What is a CCIM?  The acronym stands for Certified Commercial Investment Member. To obtain the designation an industry veteran must attend nearly 200 hours of coursework, pass a series of exams related to financial and market analysis, submit an extensive portfolio of experience and be recommended by their industry peers.  In short, CCIM designees are experts and leaders in commercial real estate.  There are over 13,000 members across the globe and the CCIM Institute is celebrating its 50th Anniversary.

If you are not a CCIM but are an enthusiastic and dedicated person to a field which relates to commercial real estate, please join our Idaho CCIM Chapter.  No designation or CCIM training is necessary. LeAnn Hume and Roger Titmus are our Membership Committee Chairs.

The goals of the Idaho CCIM Chapter are to provide a social avenue to get to know industry peers outside of business, provide balanced discussion about current affairs and to deliver applicable Continuing Education related to financial analysis and market diagnostics.

Thanks to our incredible cast of 2017 Power Partners, Holland & Hart, Radix Construction, BRS Architects, Business Interiors of Idaho, Mountain Power, Washington Federal Bank and NexTitle.  We couldn’t be a success without your generous support.  

If you or your company ever require professional advice or analysis related to commercial real estate, please seek a member of our organization as you can be assured they are one of the finest in the trade.

Sincerely,

Scott Raeber

2017 CCIM Idaho Chapter President
