As the year winds towards its conclusion, the Crexi team wants to focus on the positive and celebrate our community. There’s much to be thankful for, and we are proud to count ourselves among the community of commercial real estate professionals.
Here are some of our favorite commercial real estate wins from 2022. We hope these stories inspire you as much as they do us.
“We’ve been extremely appreciative of everything Crexi has done for our team in 2022. We not only use it as one of our most successful marketing/listing tools, but it also helps us organize due diligence items. We have nothing but compliments from our buyers on how easy the interface is to use. We are always pleasantly surprised about the number of leads that turn into LOIs that come directly from Crexi. And we love turning those LOIs into completed transactions!”

LandQwest Commercial Orlando
“I wanted to let you know how much activity we received from the Crexi platform on an industrial investment property we had at 1001 College St. in Madison, IL. The property was listed at $10,000,000, and we had immediate phone calls coming from both coasts and everywhere in between.
Within one month, we had over 50 inquiries from qualified buyers with 15 signed confidentiality agreements and six list price offers. The property closed in less than six months from the original listing date, and we’re very satisfied with the exposure through the Crexi platform!”

“I have only been a licensed agent for 7 months and I now have over $15 million worth of potential deals. All of this traction came from Crexi leads, persistent follow-up, and consistently proving my value to my leads. If you’re on the fence about signing a contract for a PRO membership, just do it. If you use all the tools provided to you and do the work, the results will follow.”

Commercial Executives Real Estate Services
“What a difference! It’s one thing to have a free system and get the service we were getting, but the activity went up dynamically as soon as we switched to PRO. For the price we pay for PRO, the services and the performance have been second to none. Just try it – I think you’ll be shocked by the performance you get out of it […] It’s the best buy we’ve ever made.”

Cawley Commercial – Chicago
“The exposure [Crexi] offers, you just don’t get that on other websites right now – the national reach is unmatched.

William Pitt Sotherby’s International
“On a day-to-day basis, [Crexi] helps us find properties for buyers, it helps us find comps, helps us locate properties we’d otherwise not know about; buyers have found US! The comps feature is a huge game changer – the boss called me yesterday and asked me to evaluate a potential deal. Crexi’s software was able to help me find and organize all the data in a neat package, and it was so easy to put an OM together. Crexi takes a lot of the admin work out of my hands.”
