Sunstate Bank proudly sponsored the Florida CCIM Chapter Miami-Dade Monroe District that held its annual Commercial Real Estate Outlook Conference on Wednesday, January 18, 2017. The event was organized by the CCIM Institute (Certified Commercial Investment Members), which was established in 1954 to give commercial real estate practitioners a previously unrealized opportunity to further their business practices through focused education and networking opportunities.

During the event, keynote speaker George Ratiu, from the National Association of Realtors, discussed the national economy and then specifically addressed the Miami/South Florida economy and commercial real estate market. Mr. Ratiu was followed by local experts in the office, industrial, investments, retail and financing markets. The conference took place with approximately 300 commercial real estate brokers, attorneys and lenders at the Coral Gables Country Club.
