Carol Tanner, CCIM, a Central Florida Commercial Real Estate Broker, recently received the prestigious Hank Thompson Award from the Florida CCIM Chapter.
The highly sought achievement recognizes Certified Commercial Investment Members (CCIM) with an influential impact on its Chapter development, member services, and contributions to new member advancement for ten years or more.
Tanner has dedicated her 17-years as an agent and broker toward advancing Central Florida’s office, medical, industrial and property management sectors — as well making significant improvements toward the value of membership in the Florida CCIM Chapter.
“Carol is most deserving of the prestigious Hank Thompson Award, the highest honor accorded to Florida Chapter Designees,” shares 2022 Florida Chapter President, Stephen Rigl, CCIM.
Rigl added that, “this award is given each year to recognize long time CCIM Designees who have perennially given their hearts and souls to the Florida CCIM Chapter, and we are very pleased this year that we could bestow this honor upon Carol for all her hard work and dedication as a volunteer on behalf 0f our Florida CCIM Chapter.”
In addition to serving as Chair of Communications and VP of Administration for the chapter, Tanner has also served on the leadership board of the FLCCIM Central District and the Central Florida Commercial Association of Realtors, where she also served as 2019 President of CFCAR.
“I am so very honored and to be recognized this way,” said Tanner. “I hold the recipients of this award in great respect and am surprised and humbled to be listed among them.”
The award is not given every year, which Tanner shared made it even more of an honor to be a recipient.
