About David Seay, CCIM

Ten years ago, I spent a great deal of time and effort to better understand where I would be best suited to serve the professional needs of others and here I am.  I put a great deal of care and concern into serving my clients and help them fulfill their individual objectives while applying my passion for the real estate, business brokerage and consulting business.

As a former Financial Advisor for one of the world’s largest banks, I understand how important other people’s assets and investment goals are to them.  By leveraging my past business experiences with some of the world’s most respected companies and my direct life experience as a small business owner as well as a commercial & residential property owner, I am experienced to assist real estate users and investors as they make informed real estate decisions.  With proper planning, successful real estate decisions can be made in a financially responsible manner that maximize gain and manage risk.  I also have personal experience as both a tenant and a landlord and have seen both sides of the equation and the ups and downs associated with each role, including legal disputes.  I have participated in 1031 tax deferred property exchanges and sale-leasebacks as well as served as a project manager, a construction supervisor and property regime representative.

I am also a Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM).  A CCIM is a recognized expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. The CCIM lapel pin is earned after successfully completing a designation process that ensures CCIMs are proficient not only in theory, but also in practice. This elite corps of CCIMs includes brokers, leasing professionals, investment counselors, asset managers, appraisers, corporate real estate executives, property managers, developers, institutional investors, commercial lenders, attorneys, bankers, and other allied professionals.

A CCIM is part of a global commercial real estate network with members across North America and more than 30 countries. This professional network has enabled CCIM members to close thousands of transactions annually, representing more than $200 billion in value. As a result, the experts who possess the CCIM designation are an invaluable resource for commercial real estate owners, investors, and users.

CCIMs have completed a designation curriculum that covers essential CCIM skill sets including ethics, interest-based negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, and investment analysis for commercial investment real estate. CCIMs have completed a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience. Finally, they have demonstrated their proficiency in the CCIM skill sets by successfully completing a comprehensive examination. Only then is a designation candidate awarded the coveted CCIM pin, joining the ranks of highly skilled commercial and investment real estate experts.


Beyond real estate, businesses need to make decisions.  Often businesses are too close to their situation and need an independent, objective advisor to assess, analyze and lead an organization to an informed decision.  Whether you are in need of a business valuation or have a business that you would like to buy or sell, I have the ability to help you.
