Ernie, the third of seven boys, was raised in rural central Wisconsin. He learned the importance and value of hard work by laboring on dairy farms and construction. “Do it right or don’t do it” was a family motto. Ernie always was one to make things happen. Whether building his own bike from old bike parts and even his first car in the same fashion, he understands the value of your money. Working hard and being you partner is second-nature to him.

Commercial Real Estate is a complex investment that can yield substantial financial gains or unforeseen financial losses. Sound Strategies for Lease, Buy, Hold, or Sell are mandatory. These key issues are weighed when counseling clients on immediate property decisions and long-term investment performance objectives. Ernie has mastered such issues as the “time value of money”, measuring investment performance using CAP, IRR, & IRV formulas, analyzing the best use of a site, property supply and demand, evaluating and managing risk, lease vs own analysis, Market Demographics, Geospatial, Psychographics, Negotiation, tax implications and financing options.

There are a multitude of details to be properly handled in any complex commercial real estate transaction. Thus, when considering a real estate transaction the Seller or Buyer would be well advised to engage the services of a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM), a recognized real estate professional.
A team of professionals from various disciplines should be assembled to concentrate on specific aspects of a transaction. A CCIM, as a member of this team, is best able to understand the components of the transaction and to Sheppard the activities of everyone in concert toward a successful conclusion for the Investor or Tenant.
A CCIM has the professional training, education and experience to serve the members of the Investment, User, or Tenant-decision team, which should include the Investor, User, or Tenants lawyers, accountants and bankers. A CCIM is able to see the transaction as more than merely the buying, leasing, or selling of a particular piece of real estate. He will view the situation as finding a solution to a problem expressed by the Buyer, Seller, or Tenant. When all the various professional disciplines work in concert for the client’s benefit, the result of their coordinated efforts, orchestrated by a CCIM, should be a real estate transaction that will serve the Investor, User or Tenant well in the present and in the future.
The CCIM institute, Chicago, confers the Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation through an extensive curriculum of 20 classroom hours in addition to professional experiential requirements. CCIMs are recognized experts in commercial real estate brokerage, leasing, asset management, valuation, and investment analysis, and from a business network encompassing 1,000 markets throughout North America, Europe, Asia and the Caribbean. There are currently 9,500 CCIM designees, with and equal number of professionals pursuing the designation.
