Does my contribution really make a difference to The DNA of CRE Survey?
Yes, every single commercial real estate professional that takes this survey is helping towards the greater good of understanding! This is not a survey to waste time or create busy work. We are all busy people and we really have plenty of projects and tasks we can work on. We are not gathering email addresses, we are not trying to market anything to you. You are already our valued members of our community, but we just do not know enough about our genetic makeup!!
This is a survey that comprises most of the frequently asked questions we hear from our members every day:
1. How much do my colleagues earn?
2. Do my colleagues have marketing help?
3. Do my colleagues use social media and what social media are they using?
4. How many of my colleagues have done deals with other brokers?
Based on these questions we have titled our need to understand, The DNA of CRE.
Every day we are all learning and growing and advancing our careers. We want to know how we stack up. The only way to do that is to find out what everybody else is doing. In such an independent industry of commercial real estate it is almost impossible to gain this insight without all of us pulling together.
The teams at both theBrokerList and Buildout decided to put much time and effort into assembling this survey with the goal of creating a benchmark we can strive to measure every year. So we developed these questions knowing how diverse our industry is and how difficult it is to measure. Since this is our first year, please know we have much to learn about survey taking and about the questions you would want to know as well. If there are other questions you find would be of interest, please let us know for next year!
We are super excited to get the results tabulated and be able to share it with all of you on or about February 25th! The goal is to give everyone the results and hopefully a powerful infographic that will support our findings visually.
Thank you in advance for helping us to start what we hope becomes an annual survey we can share every year with the industry!
