So it is all about local knowledge, local talent and data. Great, what tools do you use to keep up with the changes and your cre colleagues?
When your client asks you to enter a new market is it easy to laser point to that segment of commercial real estate folks and get answers? Well it should be. The reach today should be much easier. With technology readily available, the outreach to each other should be a snap and it has not been. It has been painful, time consuming and inefficient.
That is why we created the framework or engine called theBrokerList. The concept is that if we have a framework, we can build it. If we are all in the same database we can find each other, set up custom lists and then discreetly message each other (or block each other) and gain knowledge and get up to speed fast. I recall in my career being dropped into strange markets and cities and being given the assignment to gain market knowledge. It was not easy then and it is still not much different today, until the advent of tools like theBrokerList. Try it. If you have a tight knit group of folks in your market, set up your custom commercial real estate professional list. As an example, name it “Brokers or Managers Breakfast Club” and get those folks to join theBrokerList. Now when you want to share knowledge or ask questions of those on your “Broker or Managers Breakfast Club” list, or invite those folks to the next breakfast, just click and send a message or get answers fast.
Need to partner with a firm in an unfamiliar market or just for talkin’ local cre? Check out theBrokerList first! The first step is inviting folks to join you! If we can get everybody talkin’ local cre, our work will be done and everyone WILL be on and have use of theBrokerList!
