is a powerful and free tool for CRE professionals. I asked its founder, Linda Day Harrison to share with my audience its benefits. She has been gracious enough to do so. You can connect with her on LinkedIn

First of all, theBrokerList site is FREE to its Broker and CRE Professional members and is designed to provide a place for Brokers and CRE Professionals to hang their “digital shingle”. Our site enables our members to transact business with verified colleagues, supported financially by the tBL Marketplace Partners. That is the win-win theBrokerList seeks to achieve.
The database within theBrokerList covers all CRE segments, affiliations, organizations, practice focus types, corporate networks and geographic areas, plus theBrokerList permits the inclusion of any size national organization’s local chapters, no matter how small or large. An organization simply provides us with their member list and those members are pre-approved! In addition to supporting the search for potential colleagues and deals in different markets, this enables tBL members of these organizations and networks to utilize the powerful broadcast email feature to share HAVES and WANTS of theBrokerList platform, with laser-pointed precision to only those colleagues who wish to receive those emails. This provides extensive benefits to local or even national organizations.
To help provide B2B resources for leasing, brokerage, property management and consulting, you can find a wide variety of commercial real estate experts on theBrokerList within all of the industry disciplines. The difference we make and the added value we bring is that we verify that our members are real people (not fake profiles), and verify those members are active in commercial real estate.
Our verification process protects the quality of our site and creates the only free resource of its kind that is completely focused on only commercial real estate.

tBL is very customer service focused. We always answer our phones and do our best to help our members and Marketplace Partners.

Our team is dedicated to doing the best job we can to keep our database accurate and our features useful to a wide group in CRE.
