With 2017 here, we wish you a Happy New Year and want to provide an update on what we've been up to since our soft launch this past summer. Suffice it to say, it's all been about data, data, data! Information and relationships are the life-blood of a leasing agent's deal pipeline so that's where we've focused our efforts.

Over the past several months we've added 10,000 lease expirations. With the addition of data from numerous states, including Maryland, Maine, Rhode Island, Louisiana, New Mexico, and Montana we offer lease data for 47 of the 50 U.S. states. We've also added data from governments across many MSAs, including Dallas, Seattle, Portland, Chicago, and have gone much deeper across greater New York, Florida, and California. How deep? We have leases for hundreds of smaller governments, such as El Segundo, CA, population 16,654.

With governments more eager to hire brokers to represent them, we're focusing on adding timely requirements governments have for brokers to represent them in leasing and sales transactions. We also add hundreds of leasing requirements and requirements for development services each month.

Though contracting protocol may be slightly different, just like in the private sector, to gain credibility and trust, it's essential to build solid relationships with government officials. Want to engage with the real estate portfolio head for the cities of New York, Wauwatosa, or Lemon Grove? How about the leasing official for St. Petersburg, Warren County, OH, or Mohave County, AZ? We have them and thousands of officials.

In 2017 we'll continue adding lots more data, as well as features and functionality to make discovering and managing opportunities in the government CRE sector simple and rewarding. Hoping you have a safe and fulfilling year. And if you have any questions or comments, please send me e-mail.  I look forward to hearing from you.
