(NEW YORK, N.Y. – May 29, 2014) – The News Funnel, a fast-growing website for the real estate industry, is marking the two-year anniversary of its launch. During this time, the site has attracted thousands of real estate professionals to its customized news service, as well as more than 1,000 companies who have created their own News Channels to upload content to the site.
The News Funnel has built the most comprehensive database of real estate content on the Internet, featuring thousands of news sources, blogs, press releases and market research reports.

One of the most significant content sharing relationships is with GlobeSt.com, the largest media source in the commercial real estate industry.

To ensure that FunnelCast maintains the most authentic voice possible, it publishes articles written by its own staff in conjunction with weekly posts penned by some of the leading commercial real estate professionals in the industry, known as “funnelists.”
