The directory above selectively highlights commercial or corporate real estate services firms or associations through links to standardized GUIDE Service Profiles describing the scope of their global services, capabilities, and experiences by investors.  We identify contacts of potential interest on a selective basis through our research work and networking relationships.

Our regional directories of contacts may also highlight corporate real estate contacts on a regional basis, and GUIDE Area Profiles may highlight local corporate real estate offices in cooperation with the economic development organizations for the area.  We are also adding state directories of professional service providers (see Invest USA) as our contact lists grow.

We will disclose active working relationships as shown in the table for Location Consultants. 

Note that we can also highlight major real estate listings and property listing services worldwide on a selective basis to draw attention to special opportunities as a service to executives, area representatives, and property owners or their commercial real estate service providers.

The presence or absence of any organization on these lists, or their position on the lists, does not imply any endorsement or opinion about their services, nor by them about our own.  This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of service providers.  The selections are simply intended to be helpful to executives who may be unaware of such contacts, or how to reach them or their websites quickly.

Please note that it generally is not viable to include more direct "deep links" to the relevant services of the large corporate real estate firms on their websites, because those addresses change too frequently.  Instead, refer to our CRE Search or Professional Search features.

See also : new "advertising recall" service to highlight recently published ads, with website links and contacts, or the service to highlight useful promotional materials.
