RealConnex has taken the wraps off a platform that is expanding its community resources with the addition of 700,000 new real estate professional profiles across all roles including investors, lenders, owners service providers and more.
For agents and brokers, this can mean an increased profile in their market as well as connections to potential clients and colleagues.
CEO Roy Abrams made the announcement recently at the Real Estate Development in New York City (REDinNYC) networking event.
In addition to serving real estate professionals, RealConnex has a special focus on connecting family offices with developers and investors. With 350 family offices currently established and an additional 2,000 soon to come by the end of 2018, RealConnex is transforming how business is done in the professional real estate industry.
“With the addition of the new profiles and family offices, we are now officially the largest, most comprehensive resource for real estate professionals in the industry. We are breaking down barriers and offering optimized connectivity,” Abrams said. “By facilitating global connections, we are helping real estate professionals discover new investment opportunities, improve their reputations and service offerings and expand their influence while promoting their businesses.”
Abrams describes RealConnex as “Match.com meets LinkedIn for the real estate professional,” connecting people who work on real estate projects before they’re listed and once they’re in full swing. For example, a real-time dashboard organizes members’ activities and reports on their interaction with other members; the platform also features rooms where all parties involved in a project can collaborate online.
Earlier this month, RealConnex unveiled a partnership with Buildout which will enable Buildout’s clients to syndicate their listings to RealConnex’s fast-growing community of 130,000 members.
As part of this arrangement, Buildout’s participating brokers will receive access to the entire suite of RealConnex networking, credibility, profile, influence and prospecting tools and its vast resource of over 500,000 investors, lenders, service providers and the entire ecosystem of real estate professionals.
Abrams said the partnership was the latest for RealConnex. Other recent partnerships include The Inland real estate group, the Miami Association of Realtors and merchant banking boutique Silver Portal Capital.
“As we continue to create the central resource for real estate professionals, this partnership with Buildout represents an important step toward achieving that goal. It also extends Buildout’s distribution channels for their listings and provides their brokers access to an entire professional ecosystem in one place,” he said.
Buildout is an end-to-end solution for marketing commercial real estate listings, helping over 1,000 brokerages efficiently run their marketing. Since launching in 2010, Buildout has revolutionized the entire listing process for brokerages around the country.
