This is the 3rd edition of Commercial Real Estate Is… and it focuses on how to use the typically NOT useful Linkedin Company pages, helping animals, the creativity in commercial real estate runs very deep and we have big hearts!
Just hoping to share some good stuff with good people and make you think about ways you can do more with all of the endless tools and opportunities the internet gives to us all. Enjoy this week’s line up of great ideas!
Best Practices Linkedin Company Pages + Save-A-Pet
What an amazing use of a Linkedin Company page by Podolsky Circle of Des Plaines, Illinois. This is pure genius in my book. Of course, I am a HUGE animal lover and it breaks my heart to see sad stuff online about animals, but this put a smile on my face. Podolsky Circle, thank you for doing this for the Save-A-Pet organization. Wonderful and so positive and generous, plus you are setting an amazing example of how #CRE people are doing good out there!
Recognizing Women in Commercial Real Estate Technology
Huge shout out to the almost all woman team (sorry Michael, just had to say it!) over at Real Estate Tech News a News Funnel site, for bringing some amazing and talented women to the forefront in their story “Women in Real Estate: Leading Technology Executives.” So many of these women who work behind the scenes are seldom acknowledged and I love how Real Estate Tech News partnered with CREW Network to produce this series. The partnership produced a wonderful series and gave shout outs to so many great leaders I know and love, like Ewa Baska, Kim Howard and Ashley Young! Woo-hoo!
Challenging Colleagues? We are a Competitive Bunch!
The gaunlet has been thrown down in Las Vegas by MDL Group to get everyone in commercial real estate together to raise money to buy all of the kids in Boys Town a backpack! They call it the backpack challenge and they are one brave group! Their challenge is to amass 2,500 backpacks with the help of a few of their #CRE friends. They name names here and they are making people put up or shut up. It seems like a wonderful way to compete, which we all love in commercial real estate, so I know this will be a winner. Good job to “Team MDL Group” and let the games begin!!

Commercial Real Estate People REALLY are Super Heroes and I Have Proof!
This is so, so good, I am just shaking my head in awe! If you love comic books or even if you do not, this is the best comic book I have ever read. Even better than Archie, and I LOVED Archie, Betty, Veronica and the gang!! This is the most creative idea ever for people who act as swat teams everyday taking over new properties. GOS aka Global Occupier Services share with us, via cartoon, the accuracy of what they do in a fun and entertaining way. Yet it is an incredible press release, like no other. It kicks off the anniversary of the merger of DTZ and Cushman & Wakefield and it is WOW. I will not reveal anything to you as you must download this baby and read it for yourself. It is terrific. Thanks to Rod Santomassimo for sharing this link in the CRE Mastery Facebook group. Congratulations to the Cushman & Wakefield company for having the creativity and courage to put this together. It is wonderful!
Here is hoping that these tiny nuggets help give you inspiration and wishing you a fabulous week ahead! Thanks for reading.
