As the 2019 CCIM Florida Chapter West Coast District President, I would like to welcome you to the West Coast District! It is an honor to serve alongside our experienced and knowledgeable Executive Board and Committee Members. Our leadership team is eager to serve our members this year with passion and expertise. They are located throughout West Central Florida, working in all property types and transactions within the 11 counties that make up our district.

In 2019 our goals for the district remain consistent with the past. We strive to increase value to our members and partners, build relationships to increase profits to our members’ businesses, promote industry education and the CCIM designation. With a focus on education, the CCIM Institute and the West Coast District will host three CCIM approved courses along with a variety of specialty educational events this year. Please check our online calendar frequently for dates and more information on these events.

Along the way, we like to have a little fun. Join us each month at our Networking Functions to meet top industry leaders and build lasting relationships. Our membership is a blend of all professional commercial real estate industry experts such as brokers, lenders, architects, engineers, attorneys, CPAs, appraisers, investors, property managers, asset managers, auctioneers, surveyors, inspectors, cost segregation consultants, title companies, and more.

I encourage our members to participate in all our events, whether social or educational. Get connected on our mailing list, follow our social media accounts and check our online West Coast District calendar. We always welcome newcomers and future CCIM designees to be a part of this thriving organization! I look forward to making this year the best in our district’s history.

Best Regards,
Jill S. Carbonelli, CCIM
