     PHOENIX, ARIZONA (April 25, 2022) – A pair of up-and-coming NAI Horizon professionals recently earned the prestigious Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) designation by the CCIM Institute.

The Central Arizona CCIM Chapter welcomed two designees from NAI Horizon, First Vice Presidents Victoria Filice, CCIM, and Andrew Warner, CCIM. Filice, who was recently promoted, is with the Nunez Self Storage Group. Warner is a member of the Manufactured Housing Group.

The “pinning” took place April 9 at the Westin Charlotte in Charlotte, North Carolina.

“Two years ago, we identified a handful of young professionals who exemplified the diversity of our brokerage coverage; shareholders in the company who represented the future of NAI Horizon. Andrew and Victoria were among that group,” said NAI Horizon CEO/Designated Broker Terry Martin-Denning. “We couldn’t be prouder of them. This now brings to five the number of professionals in the office that can say they have earned the designation of CCIM.”

Filice, the 2021 NAI Horizon Associate of the Year, works in collaboration with Executive Managing Director Denise Nunez, who possesses more than 30 years of self-storage expertise. The team helps owners with the acquisition and disposition of self-storage investment properties and site selection for new self-storage development opportunities.

Filice focuses on lead generation and market analysis. She earned a degree in professional photography from Brooks Institute and has several years of experience in real estate photography, including working for Google.

Warner was the 2017 NAI Horizon Associate of the Year. Along with his father, Executive Managing Director Russ Warner, the two have closed more than $80 million in mobile home park and RV park investment sales. Andrew Warner joined NAI Horizon in 2013 and had several years of sales experience prior to completion of his college education. He is a graduate of Arizona State University.

To earn the CCIM designation, commercial real estate professionals must complete more than 160 hours of case-study driven education covering topics such as interest-based negotiation, financial analysis, market analysis, user decision analysis, investment analysis, and ethics in commercial investment real estate. Candidates must also compile a portfolio demonstrating the depth of their commercial real estate experience and pass a comprehensive examination.
