Announcing New CCIM Designee Dan Kemp

Compass Commercial Real Estate Services is pleased to announce Dan Kemp has earned his Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Designation. Brokers with CCIM designations are experts in their profession. They hold a wealth of knowledge in financial, market and investment analysis. Dan has been working towards the designation for the past few years and completed his exam last month in San Diego, California at the CCIM Conference.

“A licensed real estate broker can sell commercial real estate without a CCIM designation, which I’ve done successfully over the years, however, the CCIM institute provides a broker with the knowledge and skill set to serve commercial clients at the highest level. It provides the foundation for intelligent decision making through in-depth strategic analysis,” Dan Kemp, CCIM stated. “Equally important, earning the designation shows your clients that you take your career as a commercial real estate broker seriously and that you are willing to spend the time, energy and money that it takes to become their best advisor on the acquisition, leasing and disposition of their commercial portfolios.”

Dan started with Compass Commercial in 2012 and has since then climbed to the top of his profession. As one of the company’s top producers, Dan’s transactions have totaled over $85,000,000 in gross consideration in the last two years. In 2019, Dan became a partner in the company.

President and partner Jay Lyons, SIOR, CCIM stated, “Obtaining the CCIM designation is a differentiator in our industry and requires a high level of commitment. Dan’s commitment to obtaining the designation was impressive, but not surprising. He approaches everything he does with that same level of commitment which is why he’s one of the top producing brokers at Compass Commercial and a partner in our company.”

The designation is one of the most desirable in the field and takes two to five years to complete. The test is a comprehensive 6-hour exam that combines real-world experience and coursework. There are currently 23 CCIM designees in Central Oregon, 12 of which are a part of the Compass Commercial team. Compass Commercial is excited to see Dan continue to excel in his career.
