What is an “Internal & External CIE Platform”?
A CIE (Commercial Information Exchange) works like an internal Multiple Listing Service built specifically for your Network – but many of the fee sharing and other rules that usually accompany an MLS do not apply. Brokers and agents are free to negotiate whatever referrals they’d like with each other.
Internally – It’s not open to the public and becomes the first place the agents in your network will look for properties for their clients and for sales professionals for referral purposes.
Agents and companies prefer to do business with ‘sister’ agents and companies – and the internal CIE platform makes it easy.
Externally – It automatically syndicates your listing data out to many important 3rd Party, publicly accessible CIE type services for you. It becomes your Single Point of Entry for all of your listings making you more effective and freeing up your time for important personal marketing contacts.
It’s also an online database of all the information and tools you’ll need as a commercial real estate professional to be more efficient, more effective, more professional and more successful.
A CIE enables your network of brokers to share information and work together more efficiently. It removes barriers, allowing big companies and small companies alike to focus their time and money on serving their clients.
For the Data – First and foremost, a CIE is a repository of information: commercial property listings, recent sale & lease comparables, tax records, tenant lists, demographics and market statistics, and more.
The data is pooled by members of your network with local oversight making it the most accurate and comprehensive.
For the Tools – We’re also a marketing toolbox that will automatically create a website or online profile for you and your properties, broadcast your property listings to the network’s corporate public site as well as to many external 3rd party sites, generate flyers and proposals in seconds.
For the Community/Networking – You never know where your next deal will come from, this platform allows you to stay in touch with others in your network and stay aware of trends and events. Use it for networking, prospecting, lead generation, discussions, and trend monitoring.
