Cliff relocated to the Dallas area as Senior Development director for an 850,000 square foot, Class A office building in Las Colinas.  After leasing the project to 99% occupancy the property was sold and Cliff formed his commercial brokerage company, The Vanguard Commercial Group, Inc., and grew it at that time to a top 20 commercial brokerage company in the Dallas/Fort Worth market.  In that same year, 1995, Cliff obtained the CCIM designation.

Beginning in 2001 Cliff became an Instructor and course writer of commercial real estate classes approved by the Texas Real Estate Commission for Continuing Education credit.  Since then, Cliff has created dozens of CRE courses and taught hundreds of classes in the live classroom or online virtual platforms.

In 2005 Cliff applied and was accepted as an Instructor and Faculty member of the CCIM Institute.  Cliff’s primary courses for the Institute are: CI 101 – Financial Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate, and CI 103 – User Decision Analysis for Commercial Investment Real Estate.  In 2011 Cliff was named Instructor of the Year for CI 103 User Decision Analysis.

Cliff is still an active Broker primarily representing Investors and User/Tenants of commercial real estate, primarily in Texas and occasionally across the U.S.

I am very thankful for instructors like Cliff Bogart who provide hard to find Commercial Real Estate courses that are relevant and applicable for Commercial Brokerage today.

I have taken several of Cliff’s classes and enjoyed them very much. Being relatively new to commercial real estate, I decided to take Cliff’s classes and was very pleased with that decision. Cliff is very knowledgeable about commercial real estate and has the patience and experience to share with the class. I would gladly recommend others wanting to learn more about commercial real estate to take Cliff’s classes!
