The mission of the Florida CCIM Chapter is to provide the highest quality marketing and networking opportunities, services, and education that will enhance our members’ ability to conduct business successfully.
The Florida CCIM Chapter is comprised of 8 districts – North, Panhandle, Central, West Coast, East Coast, Southwest, Broward, and Miami-Dade – serving the entire state of Florida.
Networking and creating relationships with fellow CCIMs has proven to be extremely valuable and financially rewarding for our members.
Even if the 2016 President of the Florida CCIM Chapter does have bragging rights to generations of family being Florida-born, Chere Roane is not one to focus on the past.
“We must look toward the future and focus on putting systems in place now that will directly benefit our members this year and for years to come,” shares the Central Florida native.
In fact, Chere gets so excited about the opportunity to enhance the value of membership to chapter members that she almost speaks in code. She chats quickly about a series of seemingly unrelated topics — she references looking to the future, working closely with Realtors, creating an international committee, and suddenly she stops and becomes laser focused.
“It’s really not about me or my ideas at all. Each year, leadership is given a privileged opportunity to improve on what others have accomplished. Now, it is our turn to listen carefully to our members and enhance the tools and resources they want for success today,” Chere explains. “We know our members are savvy with technology, with international clients, and more. We plan to focus on increasing the value of the investment they make each year in the chapter by adding value to these areas.”
Born and raised in Central Florida to a family that focused on music, ministry, the then emerging radio and television industries, as well as a love of community, Chere Roane became a “Realtor®” in 1971. Since that time, Chere has actively been involved in the sale of commercial properties, residential listings/sales, and land development for both domestic and international buyers and sellers.
Chere’s commitment to her community is only matched by her love of her family. When forming her latest brokerage in 1999, Chere even incorporated her grandchildren into the name of her firm. “So every time I say I am the principal broker for Nicole & Hudson, I am honoring two incredible people: Victoria “Nicole” and Edward “Hudson,” Chere explains, beaming with pride.
Chere’s commitment to staying educated and networking with her fellow professionals is reflected in her numerous Realtor designations in addition to the CCIM designation: GRI, CIPS, ABR, ePRO, TRC, ALHS. In addition to taking the lead in the Florida CCIM Chapter, Chere is a member of the National Association of Realtors, Florida Association of Realtors, Orlando Regional Realtors Association, Central Florida Commercial Association of Realtors, and the Women’s Council of Realtors. Additional memberships and leadership positions abound, including past president of many.
With added experience in the architectural, engineering, and accounting fields, Chere learned early on the value of specific land use, building and construction costs, and design. Her ability to listen and locate even the most unique property throughout Florida has brought many referrals from her list of distinguished clients and led her to a greater focus on commercial investment properties and now her service to the Florida CCIM Chapter.
“We, the 2016 Leadership Team, are excited and committed to assisting our dedicated CCIM chapter members throughout Florida as they continue to reflect the exceptional service, experience and market insights garnered from earning the CCIM designation.”
