When you are a privately held, local Commercial Real Estate Company, it’s extremely valuable to create relationships across different markets. Expanding your reach and gaining this competitive advantage will help your team secure new business and retain existing clients. The ability to reference, or call upon a contact in New York, Houston, Chicago, or even Monterrey Mexico proves that you are heavily invested in your business. If nothing else, you’ll have someone in almost every major market to take you out for dinner whilst you’re on vacation.
As a Next Gen there is a lot to learn in this dynamic industry. I recently had the pleasure of attending the CORFAC Fall Summit in Toronto, Ontario. CORFAC conferences are a great way to expedite the learning process, meet great professionals across different markets and collaborate with one another to help its members succeed.
Shindico became affiliated with CORFAC in 2013. The timing was in line with our growing interest in the office and industrial markets. Some benefits to CORFAC include referrals, friendships, business networking, sharing of best practices and more.
CORFAC members are very active in the commercial real estate industry and many of them hold professional designations in elite, global organizations including CCIM, CPM, CRE, MCR, RICS and SIOR. CORFAC members are educators, developers, thought leaders, mentors and experts in the industry.
