John Hsu has been working in the real estate industry since 1988. He is currently the Officer of STC Management, an AMO recognized company offering property management and brokerage services. Under John's leadership, STC Management managed a portfolio in excess of $1.5 billion in 2008 of residential, commercial and industrial properties in Southern California.
In 2009, John was the first Chinese-American to be selected to attend the Jay W. Levine Leadership Development Academy, a program established by the CCIM Institute to help foster the development of the next generation of leaders in the commercial investment real estate industry.
The CCIM movement began more than 40 years ago with commercial real estate practitioners who wanted to elevate their business practices through focused education and networking opportunities. Still today, education and networking remain the cornerstones of the CCIM designation and the reason for its success. The CCIM Institute confers the CCIM designation and is an affiliate of the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).
Established by the California Association of REALTORS® in 1954 under the name Certified Property Exchanger (CPE), the CCIM designation took on national significance in 1967 under administration by a division of the National Association of REALTORS®. In 1969, the designation was renamed Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM). A council was established to administer the designation, and in 1991 it was granted institute status as an affiliate of NAR.
Now, with more than 19,000 members in 33 countries and 61 chapters worldwide the CCIM Institute has emerged as a truly global organization.
