Special Event in Nashville April 28th – An Alternative Disposition Strategy!

Kickoff the CCIM Institute Midyear Business Meetings at a special course offering of “Real Estate Gifting – An Alternative Disposition Strategy” being held on Monday, April 28th, from 1:00pm to 4:00pm at the Omni Nashville Hotel.

The course is designed to help all parties that benefit from real estate gifts:
  • Real estate professionals can expand their business by utilizing a strategy that will help owners focused on estate planning or needing to divest of any property.
  • Individual or corporate donors may resolve property issues, and benefit financially in both the short and long terms.
  • Non-profit leaders will gain an affirmative solution to the policy issue of real estate gifts they have rejected in the past.
The instructor is Duncan Patterson, CCIM, the President of Patterson-Woods & Associates, a commercial real estate firm based in Delaware, and a past President of both CCIM Institute and CCIM Foundation. This session is being presented by CCIM Foundation and the Middle Tennessee CCIM Chapter, and has been approved for CE credit by the Tennessee Real Estate Commission and several other states.

Registration for the course is only $49.00, and space is limited. To reserve your seat, email us or call (312) 321-4491.

Robin Webb Robin Webb, new CCIM Foundation President
Veteran Orlando Real Estate Executive Robin Webb Elected President of CCIM Foundation
ORLANDO, Fla. — Robin Webb, managing director of NAI Realvest in Orlando, was recently elected president of the CCIM Foundation, which fosters commercial real estate education programs and initiatives worldwide and funded scholarships worth more than $750,000 over the past five years.

Webb is well known among Florida real estate investors, brokers and lenders, having headed Coldwell Banker’s Florida division for 22 years before joining NAI Realvest, a dominant brokerage firm in Florida’s high-growth I-4 corridor.

Webb is equally well known at the CCIM Institute, where he serves as a member of the CCIM board of directors and on the boards of the CCIM Institute Foundation and CCIM Technologies.

A senior instructor on the CCIM faculty, Webb has made professional education a career objective. He has earned seven professional designations and launched a career mentoring initiative at NAI Realvest to develop the next generation of executives at the 32-year old firm.

“As a director and donor for a number of years and knowing what a dynamic and dedicated board of directors we have, it is truly an honor to serve as president,” Webb said.

Webb will continue to serve as managing director at NAI Realvest during his one-year term as president of the Foundation.

Webb said he plans to expand the CCIM Foundation’s real estate gifting program in 2014 by focusing on corporate giving from organizations that benefit from superior real estate education.

And that involves more than just asking for donations. Webb plans to be on hand when the CCIM Foundation hosts its first 2014 Real Estate Gifting Seminar Feb. 4 at the NAI Global Convention in Las Vegas.

Established in 1988, the CCIM Foundation’s mission is to advance and foster commercial real estate education through scholarships, programs and initiatives, according to its charter. The organization relies on donations.

The Named Endowed Scholarship Program within the Foundation additionally administers the granting of 53 named endowed scholarships created to recognize senior real estate professionals throughout the U.S.
