The Certified Commercial Sales Specialist (CCSS) designation provides advanced education, knowledge, and sales training for Commercial Real Estate agents.
Training includes many practical tools, not just theory or motivational "juice".
The CCSS designation will not only make you more knowledgeable, it gives you greater confidence and an edge over your competition making it is easier to get commercial listings, buyers, and clients.
Bottom line, you should get more clients and commissions by using the tools you receive when you become certified. The cost of E&O insurance for commercial practice may be reduced.
To Earn The Designation
To earn the designation, you must complete 15 required courses and pass a comprehensive final examination. The exam is an open book, comprehensive review that you take at home. Your exam is part test and part essay.
Upon successful completion, the Institute will then provide your Certificate, a license to use the Certified Commercial Sales Specialist (CCSS) title, a CD containing practical forms that you can use right away in your practice, and a profile page with the Institute that displays your own practice areas so potential clients can find you easily. You can get warm and hot leads as a result. As your practice evolves, simply provide us with any changes and we'll update your profile!
Here is what some of our graduates say:
Once I received my Certified Commercial Sales Specialist Certification, I transferred my Real Estate License to my company's Commercial Division and have increased my income substantially.
~ John G. Kelley, Phoenix
The CREI course has given me the basic tools and confidence to feel comfortable working in the commercial real estate industry. There will never be any going back from here. I'm sticking with commercial. Your courses helped me enormously.
~ Kenneth Gonzales, Arizona and Nevada
I live in a very small, but growing community; hence I wanted to make sure that I could aptly represent clients that were coming in asking questions regarding commercial properties. Since becoming a CCSS I have sold an office building, bar, restaurant, and commercial land with the assurance and confidence that I was lacking before attending the well taught, up-to-date informational classes. I have also had occasion to call and ask questions and each time my questions were handled promptly and with professional courtesy.

I can honestly say that it was money well spent, the best training I'd ever received! It totally impacted our business plans and helped influence a lot of our clients view on investing. It allowed us to take a stronger approach at what we love to do with our time and that is working in Real Estate &Investing w/Investors. The CREI program gave us the tools we needed to advance and be able to accomplish more than I'd ever imagine. We make MORE MONEY and have more REAL investor clients, not just "wannabees".
