SVN-Miller Advisors Pursue CCIM Designation

JUNE 2015, SALISBURY, MD – Sperry Van Ness – Miller Commercial Real Estate Advisors Joey Gilkerson, Chris Gilkerson and Bradley Gillis, CCIM recently attended a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) 101 class in Charleston, SC. Gillis already holds his CCIM designation but attended the course as a refresher. The class was focused on financial analysis for commercial investment real estate and was taught by Laurens Nicholson, CCIM and George Wilson, CCIM of the South Carolina CCIM Chapter.

The four day class took place at the College of Charleston and was followed by a test on the fifth day. The SVN-Miller Advisors learned to apply the CCIM Cash Flow Model to make investment decisions based on wise investment fundamentals. After completing this course, Joey, Chris and Brad are now able to measure the impact of federal taxation and financial leverage on cash flow from the acquisition, ownership and disposition phases of real estate investment. To receive the CCIM designation Joey and Chris have three more classes to take before the final exam. “Providing the best possible service to our clients is our priority, and the knowledge gained in these classes will allow us to help our clients make the most informed decisions about their investments,” stated Joey Gilkerson. “We are looking forward to continuing our CCIM education.”

A CCIM is a recognized expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. Only 6% of the estimated 125,000 commercial real estate practitioners nationwide hold the CCIM designation, which reflects the caliber of the program and why it is one of the most coveted and respected designations in the industry. For more information about the CCIM designation, contact Bradley Gillis at or call 410-543-2440.
