Reno, NV, October 19, 2021— The Northern Nevada CCIM Chapter has recognized three chapter members who recently earned the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation, the global standard for professional  achievement, from the CCIM Institute. Headquartered in Chicago, CCIM Institute is one of the largest global  commercial real estate networks.  

The following Northern Nevada CCIM Chapter members earned the CCIM designation during the organization’s  2021 Annual Governance Meetings which was held October 7 – 11, 2021 in Pittsburgh, PA at The Westin Pittsburgh. 

  • Gerrit Hillebrand, CCIM; Vice President, Colliers International, Reno, NV  
  • Amanda Lavi, CCIM; Senior Associate, Colliers International, Reno, NV
  • Ben Nelson, CCIM; First Vice President and Shareholder, Kidder Mathews, Reno, NV  

“These latest designees join an exclusive global commercial real estate community, one that represents the highest  level of expertise, experience, and ethics in the industry,” says Timothy S. Blair, CCIM, 2021 global president of CCIM Institute. “That’s why people look to this CCIM pin – each of us brings sophisticated analysis and evaluation  skills to the table to make the most of every deal while never losing sight of the human factor – our clients and those  we work with on a deal.” 

“On behalf of the entire Northern Nevada CCIM Chapter, I’d like to express my most sincere congratulations to  Ben, Gerrit and Amanda,” said Casey Scott, CCIM, President of Northern Nevada Chapter. “Earning a CCIM is no  easy feat. The program requires many hours of dedication, challenging studying and a proven portfolio of  commercial real estate transactions. It’s an honor to have these three professionals in our chapter and our community  as a whole.”  

To earn the CCIM designation, commercial real estate professionals must complete more than 160 hours of case study-driven education covering topics such as interest-based negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user  decision analysis, investment analysis, and ethics in commercial investment real estate. Candidates must also  compile a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience and pass a comprehensive  examination.
