The Oklahoma Chapter of CCIM would like to congratulate Mike Lester, with the Newmark Grub Levy Strange Beffort, on his completion of the CCIM Designation in Chicago, IL. Mike completed the CCIM curriculum by submitting his transaction portfolio of experience and completing his comprehensive examination at the mid year business meeting.

To earn the prestigious 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 for commercial investment real estate. Candidates must also compile a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience and pass a comprehensive examination.

CCIM’s newest 146 designees were honored by the CCIM Institute and their local chapter members during a pinning ceremony and cocktail reception on March 24 during the CCIM Institute Midyear Meetings at the Fairmont Hotel in Chicago.
