To Earn The Designation

To earn the designation, you must complete 15 classes 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!.

"CREI is a great place to learn Commercial Real Estate. I had only been in commercial for two months before taking the Certified Commercial Leasing Specialist program, and once I completed the course, I felt more confident and knowledgeable calling and speaking to my clients. I would recommend CREI to anyone getting into this field."
