The DNA of CRE Explained in “Detail”


DNA CRE Snippet

TheBrokerList and Buildout partnered together to evaluate the Genetic Makeup of the commercial real estate industry. Their survey asked some pretty basic questions and produced interesting results, including:

  • What cre professional spend most of their time on;
  • The type of property most often represented;
  • Where most of cre business came from;
  • Percentage of deals co-brokered, etc., and more

During this show, we didn’t just give the numbers. We discussed what the numbers meant and what, if any, is their significance.  The key to this show will be the quality of the questions that the audience asked. That’s right, the audience is asked to get on TV with us and ask questions live or give their own opinions. To participate in the show, you need to join Blab for free, using your free Twitter handle. My guests for this show are Linda Day Harrison, the founder of TheBrokerList and a sponsor of CRE Radio & TV and Ewa Baska, Marketing Director at Buildout

This is a recording of a live, online, interactive TV show in which the audience was seen and heard asking questions and directly letting us know their thoughts. We are using the “Blab” online platform which is free and doesn’t require the downloading of any software to your computer.  If you don’t want to join in on the conversation, you can just watch the show by clicking on the video in this post.
