Erin Freel

Erin Freel
CCIM

Erin Freel started as a broker associate and CCIM for Boyd Real Estate, LLC in January of 2023. Fewer than 10 percent of commercial real estate professionals are CCIMs, or Commercial Certified Investment Members, and that 10 percent averages 42 percent more transactions annually than typical brokerage specialists.

To earn this designation Erin had to complete more than 160 hours of case-study-driven education that covered topics such as interest-base negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, investment analysis, and ethics in commercial investment real estate. She also had to compile a portfolio of three or more qualifying transactions totaling $30 million or more and pass a six-hour comprehensive exam.

For over 50 years the CCIM designation has been the gold standard for commercial real estate professionals, including appraisers, brokers, asset managers, developers, lenders, investors, and other allied professionals

In her words:

 “It’s important that when dealing with someone’s life savings or group investor amounts that may run into the millions of dollars, a lot is at stake. These types of buying or selling negotiations need to be accurate with comps and calculations. All of that requires a high level of trust. For me, putting in the long hours of studying and training for the CCIM was a commitment to earn the trust of my clients, create maximum value for their commercial real estate portfolios, and continue on a path of life-long learning through the CCIM organization programs.”

Erin is a University of Florida graduate, Ironman triathlete, avid traveler and married to Nicolas Blaser, Market President for Truist Bank.
