Mike DeGiorgio was featured on Two-Sided: The Marketplace Podcast to chat all things Crexi, how the company got started, and technology’s transformation of the traditional commercial real estate industry. In this wide-ranging conversation, Mike and host Sjoerd Handgraaf discuss how to over-deliver on value when building tools for each side of the CRE transaction process. The two also covered how Crexi embraced and empowered the CRE middleman — brokers — to bring the entire marketplace into the digital space.
Mike co-founded Crexi in 2015 after experiencing a need for a modern CRE tool in his own career. Before founding Crexi, he was a top producer in the creation and launch of Auction.com Commercial (now Ten-X). Mike has managed 400+ CRE transactions and teams totaling $1B+ over four years. Mike earned his Business Degree from Northern Illinois University, from which he won the 2018 Outstanding Young Alumni award and where he also serves as a visiting lecturer.
Tune in to hear Mike’s thoughts on CRETech, the future of how CRE transactions occur, and promising updates and features Crexi has in store for all aspects of commercial real estate.
