A commercial real estate agent in Sumter recently received international recognition for her progress in her industry as a young professional.

Erricka Jones was named to the Coldwell Banker Commercial 3 Under 30 list at the company's Global conference in Las Vegas in March, an award that honors young professionals who "understand the importance of building strong customer and community relationships and comprise the next generation of leadership in the business."

Award recipients were chosen based on a wide range of metrics such as production, niche, markets, innovation, community service and leadership qualities.

Jones began her career with Sumter's Coldwell Banker Commercial Cornerstone as part of a team with Broker-In-Charge Jay Davis, during which she assisted with property valuations, lease negotiation, contract writing, comparative market analysis, task management and marketing.

A CCIM designate is a recognized expert in the commercial and investment real estate industry. The designation process includes four core courses and a portfolio of qualifying experience.
