ESSEX, CT., April 18, 2007 -- Property Politics, the real estate development and advisory firm founded by Essex resident Wayne D’Amico, CCIM, is pleased to announce that Mr. D’Amico has been selected by STDB, Inc. to conduct training throughout the eastern United States on its STDBonline.com platform.
STDBonline is a feature-rich, internet-based program designed for the commercial real estate professional. Wholly owned by the Chicago based CCIM Institute, STDBonline.com offers cutting edge features such as integrated online site analysis technology, including dynamic mapping, demographics, business data, aerial imagery, flood maps, and other tools to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of those engaged in the commercial real estate industry. Initially developed for exclusive use by CCIM Institute members, there are now various subscription options available to non-members.
The CCIM Institute is the body that confers the prestigious CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) designation to commercial real estate professionals who have successfully completed its rigorous curriculum of courses. According to the CCIM Institute, “only 6 percent of the estimated 125,000 commercial real estate practitioners nationwide hold the CCIM designation, which reflects not only the caliber of the program, but also why it is one of the most coveted and respected designations in the industry.” Originally a U.S. based organization, the CCIM Institute now has a worldwide presence with over 17,000 members in 33 countries.
A CCIM designee himself and member of the Institute’s Board of Directors, Mr. D’Amico is an avid user of STDBonline.com, and is uniquely qualified to teach the myriad benefits of this powerful program. “The STDB was developed by the highly skilled and experienced practicitioners within the CCIM organization”, D’Amico said. “The latest release version designed with ESRI, Global leader in GIS technologies, takes this proprietary benefit to the next level. STDB is uniquely positioned against any alternative “off the shelf” demographic software used by non-CCIM professionals.” Mr. D’Amico has recently conducted training seminars in Albany, NY, Meriden, CT, Columbus, OH, Philadelphia, PA, and is scheduled for Ft Myers, FL in June.
