If you are a current member of theBrokerList and your profile displays the green check mark and “Verified” you are part of only 75% of those that actually get Verified each day! Yes, every time someone joins our site there is a process taken to verify that member is active in commercial real estate (cre). Why? Because the entire point of theBrokerList is connecting ourselves to other folks in the cre industry and knowing that when you do join our list is the highest quality list of cre folks on the planet.
For companies that send us their staff list to be uploaded, we verify your firm is active in commercial real estate, as well as those we upload. Our assumption is that we have already verified your entity based on the fact that your firm is active in cre.
The steps we take to verify individual members is based on our 6 point review below:
~1. Validation via recognized cre credentials or membership in an organization or affiliation such as: CCIM – http://www.ccim.com; SIOR – http://www.sior.org; CPM – http://www.irem.org, etc.
~2. Licensed with a state or other governmental real estate license authority. (If your governmental authority cooperates and if your country has a license system.)
~3. Confirmation of employment by a company providing commercial real estate services. (email domain matches firm of employment) and/or your profile appears on the company website and validates your position with the firm. (Free email accounts need to be confirmed by the company in an extra step.)
~4. Confirmation of active commercial real estate listings.
~5. Evidence of an active commercial real estate social media profile with legitimate followers, references, etc. (LinkedIn, Twitter, Blog, Facebook page)
~6. References from other members of tBL that you are actively involved in commercial real estate. (Current member vouches for you.)
Thanks to all of those who are Verified. Our process does take some time so you may see profiles that are not Verified. It may be that we are communicating with that individual and waiting for additional information to complete our Verification. If you do notice your profile is not yet Verified, please contact us immediately to resolve the issue.
