The new CommercialExchange.com was launched last month to provide commercial real estate brokers with access to a comprehensive national marketing platform that is seamlessly integrated with their local CIE. While residential brokers and agents have benefitted from national portals for over 20 years, commercial brokers have had to choose between local portals or increasingly expensive marketing services. Commercial Gateway is cooperating with national technology provider Catylist Real Estate Software to integrate our local CommGate.com with the national CommercialExchange.com portal.
The CIE has been online promoting its members’ data at CommGate.com since 2001.
The integration between the two sites is seamless and instantaneous. Listing data entered into CommGate.com by CIE members is instantly available for display on Commercial Exchange. Catylist compiles both for-sale and lease availabilities sourced directly from brokers in Catylist’s network of over 50 CIEs across the United States.
CommGate members don’t have to login to Commercial Exchange since all of the functionality and more features and benefits are built into the CommGate CIE. Listing display on CommercialExchange.com is a benefit provided to CommGate members at no additional cost.
It has been almost two months since CommercialExchange.com was launched and the site is already one of the nation’s leading commercial real estate websites. CommGate.com and CommercialExchange.com are complimentary sites that do not really compete with each other. CommGate.com’s search-engine-optimization and user interface are optimized for brokers in the Texas, while CommercialExchange.com is targeted at a national audience. Our cooperative agreements mean that CommGate members and their clients benefit from both sites.
Commercial Exchange and Commercial Gateway system are designed on modern software that responds to whatever type of device is used. So, PCs, phones, laptops and tablets all can access displays that are optimized for their various screen sizes.
