  • Commercial Real Estate Negotiations

    Learn and apply the CCIM Interest-based Negotiations Model to your most challenging transactions. Learn new, proven strategies to client acceptance that will get you out of the "high/low game" and other tactics that can derail a successful transaction.

    Interest-based negotiation is a three-step process that brings discipline to your negotiation strategies.

    It involves identifying:

    • What parties are involved in the negotiation, and what are they seeking?
    • What can we do to get the other parties what they need, so that we can get what we want?
    • What happens if there is no agreement?

    Course Objectives

    Through an interactive case study format and role play, you will learn to:

    • Satisfy the interests of parties involved in the negotiation (without sacrificing yours)
    • Develop strategies for identifying and addressing challenges in a principled, transparent manner
    • Maintain a collaborative approach to negotiations
    • Effectively communicate the consequences of not reaching an agreement

  • CI-104 Investment Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate

    Similar to other courses, CI 104 is case-study driven. Within each case study, you will encounter a key investor decision: Should a non-taxable investor acquire an investment with or without debt financing? What if the investor is taxable? During the holding period of an investment, should an investor make a discretionary capital expenditure or not? How does an investor evaluate disposition alternatives? Gain knowledge, tools, and resources needed to make these decisions.

    Begin to develop the practice of integrating the CCIM Communications/Negotiations Model into all real estate decisions with a focus on using this Model in presentations.

    With today’s challenging real estate market, we will also take a comprehensive look into approaching risk analysis by exploring the types of risk associated with real estate investment, and the ways to mitigate and manage those risks.

    After completing this course, you will be able to:

    • Apply key investor decision-making analyses to optimize investment returns.
    • More effectively forecast investment performance by quantifying real estate risk.
    • Leverage CCIM analytical tools to improve decision-making
