DNA of #CRE Survey Results 2016
Started in 2015 as a collaborative project, Buildout and theBrokerList wanted to dig deeper to learn more about what and who make up the commercial real estate brokerage industry.
The commercial real estate brokerage industry is hard to identify, or should we say, quantify. With the blend of commercial and residential coupled with how buildings are owned and types of real estate, it is hard to really understand the DNA of #CRE, so to speak.
So this is the 2nd year the survey has taken place and Buildout and theBrokerList tackled it again. The survey started at the beginning of December and hoped to capture as many people as possible to respond to the less than 3 minute survey that included demographic, deals, marketing and technology questions as they applied to 2016.
The 2016 edition was the first year that it asked gender and age! Well the results are in and we hope you spend some time reviewing the results. If you want to blog about the survey or throw your two cents into the mix, feel free to do so.
Thanks to all who participated in the survey and we are looking forward to the next year.
