Tempe, AZ, April 09, 2019 --(PR.com
)-- Menlo Group Vice Presidents Steve Berghoff, CCIM, and Mark Haslip, MBA, CCIM, recently earned the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation from the CCIM Institute. The advisors were recognized for their achievement at a ceremony held earlier this month in San Antonio.
“I am proud to have completed this designation and be a part of the CCIM organization,” Berghoff said. “The CCIM coursework provides a solid educational foundation in commercial real estate, and this training will help me better serve my clients.”
Just over a year ago, Berghoff and Haslip decided to pursue the designation as a way to distinguish themselves in their field. To earn the designation, they completed nearly 200 hours of coursework on topics such as financial and market analysis, negotiation and ethics before passing a six-hour comprehensive exam. They were also required to compile a portfolio detailing their transaction work.
Berghoff has worked in commercial real estate for 16 years and been with the Menlo Group team since 2015. He primarily represents landlords of medical and professional office properties in the East Valley.
Haslip had a successful sales career at Henry Schein Dental, a Fortune 500 dental supply and equipment company, before switching to commercial real estate in 2017. At Menlo Group, he helps dental and medical professionals find real estate as they start, relocate and expand their practices.
“Receiving the designation feels amazing,” Haslip said. “I know it will enable me to better educate and help my clients through the successful acquisition of real estate.”
Berghoff and Haslip join an international network of 13,000 commercial real estate professionals, which includes some of their Menlo Group colleagues. Six of the company’s 10 advisors now hold the CCIM designation.
“To see so many of our advisors earn the CCIM designation is a testament to our team’s commitment to lifelong learning and continued professional development,” said Tanner Milne, MBA, CCIM, SIOR, President and Founder of Menlo Group. “Steve and Mark exemplify our core values and what it means to be a Menlo Trusted Advisor, and we couldn’t be prouder of their achievement.”
