At NAI Ohio Equities, we pride ourselves on being the top Commercial Real Estate company in Central Ohio. Many of our agents have put in time and energy to achieve industry designations, such as CCIM, SIOR or CPM. Those agents stand out from the crowd and provide a high level of service with our industry and company.
Other than the Ohio and National Real Estate exam, there are no designations required to practice as a commercial real estate broker (unlike with an attorney, engineer, architect or doctor). Because of this, commercial real estate associations have created specialized professional designations that allow you to identify those practitioners who have gone above and beyond. These help the best stand out from the rest and can guide you through the complex process of buying and selling commercial real estate.
The two most common designations are CCIM and SIOR. CCIM designation stands for Certified Commerical Investment Member. The CCIM pin signifies the agent has completed advanced courses in the market and financial analysis and has demonstrated significant experience in the commercial real estate industry.
The other common designation is SIOR, which stands for Society of Industrial and Office Realtors. This designation is a professional achievement for those who have a strong history in fee-based services, brokerage or executive management. They must be a specialist in office or industrial markets, close more than 30 transactions/year and meet education, production, and ethical requirements.
These professional designations signify an ongoing commitment to market trends, industry knowledge, and life-long learning. When choosing an agent, it makes sense to find one that has a designation that signified years of knowledge and experience. Let us know how we can help match you with the right agent for the job!

"Ryan McGreevy very professionally handled the sale of this property and I was very satisfied with his work. I look forward to doing future business together."
"Each and every prospective deal is always handled in a professional and compelling manner. Furthermore, the attention to detail and analysis provided with each RFP has greatly helped the partners in their decision making."
"The NAI Ohio Equities Industrial Team has done an excellent job for us. After purchasing Southeast Industrial Park our goal has been to sell the buildings individually. Their team has clearly communicated our objectives to the brokerage community and end users. Through an aggressive marketing effort they have been able to sell 13 of the 18 buildings in the park. We appreciate their determined and honest approach to business."
"Working with Matt Gregory and Andy Dutcher was fantastic. They were both very energetic and knowledgeable, responding quickly to our various needs and questions. Both are very personable, understood our needs, and strongly supported our effort to start a social enterprise. I would highly recommend them both."
"Joe Menninger and Philip Bird were a delight to work with. They completely understood our parameters and the necessity to sell our real estate, while continuing to maintain our operations in the space during and after the sale."
"We have grown significantly in the past few years and had to lease space at three separate locations in order to accomodate the needs of the agency. I was delighted with the personal commitment made by both Peter Merkle and Matt Gregory to find us a property that met all of Alvis House's needs. The time and effort they have put forth has been invaluable."

Zanesville, Ohio, a small city of 26,000 residents located 45 minutes east of Columbus in Muskingum County, could be the perfect place for that new hotel, warehouse or retail space. NAI Ohio Equities has a significant foothold in the Zanesville market thanks to one of our agents, Kim Benincasa.
Kim has specialized in the Zanesville area for over 17 years. Creating meaningful relationships with a number of local businesses, local retailers, and developers, she often has a large number of land development listings for sale. Currently, she has over 17 listings, all with various aspects that would make for a great warehouse, distribution center, retail center, hotel site or gas station.

Wherever Amazon plants its second flag, a city will be permanently changed.
Columbus finds itself in national headlines as the only Ohio city on the short list of locations for Amazon's $5 billion second headquarters — which is projected to mean 50,000 new jobs.
The company is proposing a headquarters that would need about 500,000 square feet of office space in its first phase in 2019. Eight years later, though, that requirement could grow to 8 million square feet, it predicts — matching its presence in Seattle.

Expect More Direct Targeted Outreach to Customers
The IoT and mobile technology will likely only get broader as we move through 2018. These technologies are going to make lead generation much easier for retailers; automating more big data analysis to improve warehousing and distribution channels, customer management and retention, and targeted ads, emails, and social media posts directly to mobile devices of CRE buyers, tenants, sellers, owners, developers, architects, etc.
Expect More Standard Adoption of Advanced Technology
Right now, retail has already begun moving away from point-of-sale terminals at their physical stores and adopting more advanced cashless payment options similar to what consumers are used to when shopping online. As retail giants continue to adopt these technologies, they will become standard.
