This has been an absolutely marvelous year and there is NOT one part of it that I would ever want to change. WE are a unique membership group made up of many different types of personalities. Each member I have encountered along my way has brought me inspiration, some have made me think about a situation or a deal very creatively, and comradery I find amongst its leaders is truly one of kind.
Being a CCIM is a very important part of life, my career and my future. Thank you CCIM members for showing me the true Power of the Pin – Its Members!
