Teterboro, N.J. (October 27, 2022) – NAI James E. Hanson, the largest New Jersey-based full-service independent commercial real estate firm, announces William Ericksen and Lorenzo Lambiase have earned their Certified Commercial Investment Members (CCIM) designations from the CCIM Institute.
For more than 50 years, the CCIM designation remains the gold standard for commercial real estate professionals including appraisers, asset managers, brokers, developers, investors, lenders and all allied professionals. To earn a CCIM designation, applicants must complete a rigorous program of advanced coursework and training in financial and market analysis and demonstrate extensive experience within the commercial real estate industry.
To demonstrate their experience in commercial real estate, CCIM candidates must submit a portfolio of qualifying activities, transactions, projects or work products. Transactional portfolios must meet one of three minimum volume requirements including three or more qualifying activities totaling $30 million or more; exactly 10 qualifying activities totaling $10 million or more; or 20 qualifying activities with no dollar volume requirement.
Since joining NAI James E. Hanson in 2019, both Ericksen and Lambiase’s portfolios include transactions exceeding the CCIM Institute’s minimum volume requirement. Ericksen has completed over 20 transactions valued at over $200M and Lambiase has completed over 50 transactions valued at greater than $200M.
Their CCIM designations continue the brokers’ upward career trajectory as both Ericksen and Lambiase were recently promoted to associate vice president in October of 2022.
“Earning a CCIM designation is highly challenging and takes immense focus and dedication to qualify and complete each component of the process,” said William C. Hanson, SIOR, President of NAI James E. Hanson. “Our firm places a sincere emphasis on the professional development of our employees, so it’s extremely gratifying to see Will and Lorenzo’s growth over the past few years as they continue to take the steps needed to stand out in such a competitive environment.”
