Brokers Kristie Schmitt and Grant Schultz Gain CCIM Designations

Compass Commercial Real Estate Services is proud to announce two new Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designations for Kristie Schmitt and Grant Schultz. Brokers with the CCIM certification are recognized as experts in their field, specializing in financial, market and investment analysis. Both Schmitt and Schultz obtained this prestigious designation in April 2023 at the CCIM conference held in Boston. Their knowledge and professionalism throughout their careers, coupled with their attainment of the certification, further solidify their position as industry experts.

Schmitt joined Compass Commercial in 2019 with a proven track record as a business development professional. Throughout her career, she has successfully closed numerous commercial transactions, including Compass Commercial’s Largest Sale Transaction of the Year in 2019 and 2020, as well as the Largest Lease Transaction of the Year in 2020.

Schultz joined Compass Commercial in 2017 after honing his skills at Capacity Commercial Group in Portland. Schultz was awarded Compass Commercial’s Largest Lease Transaction of the Year award in 2017, in addition to the Largest Sale Transaction of the Year in 2017 and 2021. In 2021, he was a part of the broker team to be awarded the EnCOAR Commercial Transaction of the Year award.

“We couldn’t be prouder of Kristie’s and Grant’s achievement,” Graham Dent, SIOR, president and broker stated. “We encourage our brokers and staff to earn professional designations and promote their personal and professional development. These achievements help to elevate the quality and professionalism within our organization and assist in our ability to deliver exceptional results for our clients.”

The CCIM designation has been leading the commercial real estate credential for more than 50 years. It often takes two to five years to complete, followed by a comprehensive 6-hour exam that combines real-world experience and coursework. With the addition of Schmitt and Schultz, Compass Commercial now boasts a total of nine CCIM designees.
