SPOKANE, WASH. (May 9, 2017): NAI Black congratulates Christopher D. Bell on obtaining his SIOR office designation. He is one of the select few brokers in Spokane who has completed enough real estate transactions to earn an SIOR membership.

Since 2005, Bell has been a Managing Broker at NAI Black, one of Spokane’s largest and most successful commercial real estate companies.  Chris’ areas of expertise include retail sales and leasing, corporate services, and office sales and leasing.  He was named a top producing NAI Black broker in 2012, 2014, and 2016, and set a record for the highest ever gross commission income in company history in 2012.

In addition to his brokerage experience, Chris is also a licensed attorney in the State of Washington. While he does not provide his clients with legal advice, his knowledge of the legal aspects involved in a real estate transaction gives his clients a competitive advantage. Chris also serves the Spokane community as a volunteer in leadership roles at several organizations, including serving as the chair of the Ortho/Neuro Council at the Providence Health Care Foundation, as well as the Chair Elect of the Spokane Club.

What is an SIOR?  SIOR stands for the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors and is the leading professional office and industrial real estate association.  Becoming an SIOR is a unique and exemplary designation, as just under 3,100 members hold the title in over 630 cities and 34 countries.  These real estate professionals who have earned the SIOR designation are recognized as the most capable and experienced brokerage practitioners in their market.

Why hire an SIOR?  Professionals that hold the SIOR designation have met stringent qualifications certifying their expertise.  SIORs have access to global coverage and expert knowledge in local markets.  The ongoing education that SIORs are required to complete ensure that they remain on the cutting edge of industry practices.  SIORs are deal closers, reporting more than $12.5 billion in sales and leases completed in 2016.  Finally, SIORs are market-tested, ethically driven, and respected in the industry.

If you have any inquiries for Christopher Bell, please contact him at 509-623-1000.

Again, congratulations Chris on achieving this honorable designation!
