LAKELAND, FL, October 27, 2022 - SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler would like to congratulate our new Managing Director of Orlando, Rafael Mendez on becoming a Certified Commercial Investment Member for the CCIM Institute. This highly-esteemed designation is shared by the most influential and innovative advisors within the industry.
Members who hold this designation have completed rigorous training courses and have maintained a commercial portfolio that reflects significant experience within their field. The education courses cover all areas of ethics and negotiation needed for a successful commercial real estate advisor.
Upon completion of the courses, along with meeting the minimum portfolio requirements, candidates must pass the full-day CCIM Exam that covers all the core concepts from the courses.
While building the portfolio fit for this designation, Rafael closed on a number of interesting and unique transactions. One of his most recent listings was a 4,100 SF industrial warehouse condo within Orlando’s Crownpointe Commerce Park. Also in his commercial portfolio is a large sum of industrial, office, and special-use properties.
“Rafael has really proven himself within his field” said Jonathan Barreras, COO of SVN | Saunders Ralston Dantzler, “this designation is well-earned and will serve him well as we expand into the Orlando market.”

Rafael brings a global perspective with a national presence that has only catapulted clients’ success. Currently residing in Seminole County, FL, Rafael continues to support his community in a number of different ways. Not only does he volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and the Special Olympics, but Rafael also serves on the board of directors for Commonsense Childbirth.
