2019 was an incredible year of growth and advancements for RealNex. We renewed and expanded a global alliance agreement with CCIM Tech, entered an agreement with CBRE Canada and CCIM Florida Chapter and expanded our footprint with NAI, Colliers, Newmark, Marcus & Millichap and Lee & Associate offices among scores of other local, regional global firms. Among the myriad updates to the platform, was the major release of the CORE CRM cloud-based solution and the cross-platform integration it enabled, as well as the comprehensive overhaul of MarketEdge. As we enter 2020, we have best-in-class solutions for all the CRE Tech sectors we serve, and the most complete platform for commercial real estate brokerage firms.
While all the recent updates and advancements to the RealNex platform are too numerous to highlight here, we wanted to highlight what we consider the Top 19 RealNex Solution Updates from 2019. As we enter 2020, the progress continues to accelerate, and we look forward to a great new year of progress and growth.

With so many powerful updates throughout the year, trimming the list to 19 wasn’t easy. A few of the items that deserve an “Honorable Mention” include:
- Cross platform integrations – From CRM users can know push all Property information through to MarketEdge and MarketPlace, including all photos and Space Details. So, you can efficiently manage all your data in CRM and then instantly go to market when you have an opportunity to pursue or new listing to present.
- Links – The full power of our relational database is put to use as any CRM record can be associated with any other with Links. That means you can search for buildings to access owners or tenants, track leads across multiple projects, associate contacts with multiple companies, or multiple companies with each other.
- Analyze Listings – With the click of a button, your MarketPlace Listing data can be accessed in MarketEdge to run Financial Analyses or to create a full suite of branded marketing materials.
