Commercial Real Estate’s Global
Standard for Professional Achievement

A Message From The President

Dear CCIM Colleagues,

As we begin 2021, many are concerned about the pandemic-challenged economy and its effect on the real estate industry.  CCIMs are seasoned professionals who know how to network, leverage our elite, commercial real estate training and utilize CCIM resources to have a unique perspective to navigate through these unchartered waters.

Here are some of the tools CCIM is offering for your business plan this year:

  • Don’t miss the “who’s who commercial real estate event” of the year (rescheduled due to weather, new date coming soon).  We are anticipating a hybrid event – meaning some attendees will be at Norris Conference Center, at CityCentre, in person while others will attend virtually, via Zoom.  The CCIM Commercial Real Estate Forecast Competition will feature:
o   DR. MARK DOTZOUR:  Keynote speaker who has been a CCIM Houston/Gulf Coast tradition
for decades.  Dr. Dotzour was the Chief Economist at the Real Estate Center at Texas A&M for
18 years, and his presentations have served as a “crystal ball” to guide CCIMs for many years.

o   Former CCIM Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter Presidents moderating each market sector including:  JANE NODSKOV, ED TARAVELA, BETH YOUNG, DAVID SCHWARZ and HENRY HAGENDORF.
o   Courageous industry leaders in Industrial, Land, Multi-family, Medical, Office and Retail who
have stepped up to share their economic forecasts for 2021 in the midst of these unprecedented times.

  • If you do not already have your CCIM Designation, this is a good year to start (or continue) taking classes to broaden your commercial real estate analysis skills.  Classes include:
o   Market Analysis, March 2 - 5, 2021
o   Investment Analysis, TBD
o   User Decision Analysis, June 22 - 25, 2021
o   Financial Analysis, November 30 - December 3, 2021
  • Our “mother ship,” the CCIM Institute has a website that is full of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources and Guidance for real estate professionals.  If you have not explored this information, I encourage you to take a look.

We are looking forward to continued relationships and support from CCIM Partners in 2021.  As we explore utilizing virtual platforms for our events, we are excited about the additional attendees we potentially can attract that traverse geographic boundaries.  This new opportunity to have a broader audience for our events should expand the exposure and marketing of the great Partners who support our CCIM Gulf Coast Chapter.  If you are interested in becoming a CCIM Partner, click HERE for more information.  You may also contact Andrew Nguyen at anguyen@tenantbase.com or 713.530.6867.

Though the upcoming year will be challenging, please know that the 2021 CCIM Gulf Coast Chapter Board is committed to providing CCIMs with information and educational opportunities, so we can learn and build on the unique experiences we will gain from real estate deals made this year.

Best Wishes for a Profitable and Safe New Year!

D. Samantha Harris, CCIM
Chapter President
