We have learned and continue to learn, unique and exciting ways brokers and salespeople can make money from commercial and residential real estate information services. We share these concepts with Executive Members through ICIWorld.
Since 1994 when we were the first real estate information service on the Internet, we have been developing these services and submit that this service is a valuable tool for every single real estate broker's and salesperson's "information tool box" in the world.
ICIWorld is a special information tool that helps brokers and salespeople work open and exclusive information to make them money in a way compatible with organized real estate.
Many of the ideas started years ago. Then with the book by Bill Gates called "@ the Speed of Thought" it inspired us to connect thoughts of people in the commercial and residential real estate industry. The kind of thoughts were of intentions and goals to buy and sell and lease real state. We call these Haves and Wants.
When people who spend all their daily lives trading in real estate, they are the best positioned people to build a competent service, to qualify information and work it effectively.
To some extent the whole world is learning how to use these services and ICIWorld and all members are on the cutting edge learning not only how and what services to develop that help the industry network, but to then market the concepts and then teach the concepts.
We have been so inspired by the all the successes of every single member who applies these concepts that we know they work and ICIWorld continues to grow.
And members are profiting big time and their clients and prospects! See testimonials.
We invite you to participate. Call anytime for a demo.
This service applies to
every area of the world.
Think of this service as an electronic equivalent of classified ads in a newspaper but to a market of two billion people using the Internet and the people they reach.
"Have and Want Information in the commercial real estate business can make one a lot of money."
Each Have or Want in this business can make you $10,000, $25,000, $50,000 and more if you are a real estate broker making a commission. You are helping people get together to do a deal.
The Haves and Wants identify people with whom you may be able to do business with.
New and old listings identify people and essentially the contacts and the kind of real estate they may deal in. If you develop a good business relationship with these brokers and salespeople you will find that doors can open up to doing business.
For the buyer it is an opportunity to create wealth.
For the seller it frees them up to get on with their plans.
In the past, brokers would not work open and exclusive type information unless one had a listing. Why spend money marketing a property if the owner would not even give you a listing?
Today, ICIWorld has removed the restriction of the cost of advertising information because with a small yearly membership, one can network as many real estate Haves and Wants as one can.
And the public can network as many Haves and Wants as they wish to as well for free in the Free FSBO Area.
In Canada and the USA you must be a licensed real estate broker or salesperson to be an Executive Member.
This is not the case in the rest of the world. See who can join.
Principals can join to sell their property in every area of the world until such time as there is organized real estate in their country. Repeat: In Canada and the USA you must be a licensed real estate broker or salesperson to be an Executive Member.
ICIWorld is the fastest and easiest way to network Have and Want Information in the world today for Industrial, Commercial and Investment Real Estate, Land, Farms, Businesses, Financing and more.
Since 1991 and today we continue building services to strengthen local, regional, and national and international networking . . . communities.
Yes everyone advertises their real estate board type listings on ICIWorld. We recommend real estate board type listing services, however there is much more information in everyone's market area, that can not be worked through a real estate board type service.
90% of shopping centers in many markets are not on real estate boards.
90% of apartment buildings are not on real estate boards.
Yet it is valuable information that can help one make a connection that can lead to doing a deal, make one a lot of money and serve the public well.
ICIWorld is the main service in the world that can help facilitate these connections. We have been doing this for over fifteen years and it is working as smooth today as ever.
In fact 44% of a recent months sales through ICIWorld were of this variety. This included open and exclusive information, buyers acquisition criteria, and much more, not just real estate board type listings to help generate the connection that led to doing the deal.
May we step you outside of the box of you normally work just listings and show you how information can work for you?
We suggested to one broker to place a message "two apartment buildings coming for sale." He generated contacts that led to doing two deals and he made $239,000 from this one message. You can do this in your marketplace through ICIWorld! May we show you how?
ICIWorld.net is a service designed to handle the free flow of information. It may be the only major world wide service that we know of in the world helping brokers work this kind of information in a most successful and effective manner, competent and professional manner, compatible with how real estate brokers do business in the organized real estate industry.
One broker who started MLS in his community in 1956 said it in one of our seminars that he thought it was some of the freshest ideas in commercial real estate in our business in years and many others agree.
These ideas will work in YOUR MARKET PLACE when handled properly and because of the readership! This is cutting edge technology that will work for you. It is very exciting. We hear it from every member. May we demonstrate it to you, in a simple presentation in your office over phone while you are on the Internet?
We are as close as the nearest telephone. Contact us. We can bring you one click away to your next customer.
"Information" versus Real Estate Board Type Listings
|We will show you how
some brokers are making hundreds of thousands of dollars on "commercial
real estate information" in the marketplace.
The Training Program that all members receive has proven time and time again to upgrade the skills of the members is important.
The true value of this service is in the relationships one can develop.
Many connect on one ad that does not suit them, but go off and do a deal on something else.
Typically in the past open listing information was not worked because of lack of control and the cost involved. Today with the internet, open listings can be worked and we have suggestion on ways to handle this information in a successful manner.
An $80M hotel complex would be Western USA $80M Hotel. That's it! That can trigger a call from a REIT or PENSION FUND or other large buyer.
95% of the real estate brokers and salespeople of the world really have not arrived on the internet in an effective fashion.
Here is another example of how one broker made $239,000. He had an apartment building coming for sale and said Gary, when I get the listing I'll put it on. I said why don't you place a message that says "two apartment buildings "coming for sale." When people call, you can put them on a list and when you get your listing signed, you can call them. He did this, and received 14 calls in 24 hours and sold two buildings. All brokers and salespeople in the world are licensed to trade in real estate information.
Short History and
Description of Development
I am in a very unique position to see and learn how business transactions get started and things happening in the marketplace. We have been an information and marketing assistant to licensed real estate brokers and salespeople world wide for the last ten years.
We have helped run CCIM Marketing Sessions where over $200,000,000 worth of Haves and Wants in commercial real estate have been presented. This service grew out of CCIM Chapter Marketing Sessions and has now become a major world service. It has required high level programming, waiting for technology to catch up, waiting for people to become educated to use computers and technology, and then teaching how to network information not on real estate boards. This actually should be a service adopted by every single real estate board in the world. With the new developments under way every real estate board, every commercial group in the world can make use of something new called a "Search Matrix." Every group can have its own ICIWorld EMail List Service, delivering information within the hour to your marketplace. How much does it cost? It is free to groups if their members are members of ICIWorld.
Licensed real estate professionals world wide are best positioned in the market place to know about and gather Have and Want information in the commercial real estate industry. This helps their clients and prospects to connect with others to do business. This provides a real value added service to the industry world wide to help people do real estate business.
This is great for the economy because in many trades in real estate there is an upgrading of stock going on. Buyers in many cases fix up, repair, renovate, build and this stimulates the economy and creates jobs. Thousands of jobs. One piece of land identified and sold through ICIWorld was a housing division, shopping center site, and much more.
What we try to do on ICIWorld is to apply some principles of what Bill Gates wrote in his book "at the speed of thought." In other words, information at the speed of thought. This is to bring your clients and prospects closer together through the member brokers. It is working now in an effective manner with deals now reported daily to prove it.
We do not charge a franchise fee for new brokers in new areas yet they get the benefit of being the first. The reason it is successful in new areas is because there are relative degrees of readership in every area of the world for information on ICIWorld and no one else in the area is doing it. Information in real estate can be like a gold mine.
People can pop up information on the screen within 4.9 seconds from everywhere on earth! And they are doing it big time. See Statistics.
There is no question that literally every person at one time or another will come across ICIWorld either on the Internet, at a conference, seminar, trade show, etc. if they deal in some aspect of commercial real estate in the world.
If your information is placed, they can easily call you and presto you can be into a deal.
The power of the Internet is what we have studied and developed services for since 1994. This power goes to work for you the minute you join. It is the responsibility however of every single real estate broker and salesperson of the world to place their information in an effective manner!
90% of the brokers in the world have not arrived on the Internet in an effective fashion however and we aim to change that through our Training, Education and Orientation session upon joining and circulars and webinars and videos throughout the year to Executive Members.
Brokers support the service through a small yearly fee and an initial one time signup of $79. Think of it as a twenty story office building with a major service on every floor. Links to listings for a salespersons web site are supplied to members. Web sites are separate, are free for three months, then you have a choice to keep them for a small monthly fee.
This is like a service bureau that removes the restriction of having to think, "does it cost me money to advertise a new opportunity." The answer is no because members have unlimited advertising with a membership.
Just one example of hundreds of types of information, is one broker who made $52,000 with two hours of work. He received a verbal agreement from an owner who agreed to pay him a commission if he could produce a buyer and sell his property. He also agreed to let him place the information on ICI World as "33,000 sq.ft. building in Toronto" without the address. The broker received a call and a meeting with a prospective purchaser and his agent was set up. He qualified the buyers, set an appointment to show the property. He got a 48 hour exclusive agreement and showed the property. They went back and forth a few times with the offer and sold the property.
This service was designed to fill the gap in the market place for commercial real estate information . . . and . . . at what Bill Gates had in mind . . . at the Speed of Thought.
When a broker drives down the street and sees a sign on a property, for sale and a phone number, that is a piece of information. ICIWorld has a model that can work that kind of information successfully.
When the information is placed on ICIWorld, two things happen. One, the information is in a database that is receiving over a quarter of a million hits from tens of thousands of unique viewers and, two, the information is immediately distributed to powerful EMail List distribution Services of ICIWorld which circulates this information to all who wish to subscribe to it by EMail . . . absolutely free.
Everyone interested in commercial real estate Have and Want information should subscribe to the ICIWorld List Services to receive these Haves and Wants by Email for their area.
This is the fastest delivery of commercial real estate information in the world today that we personally know of.
Today this service successfully handles information in the commercial real estate marketplace throughout the world. What else do we mean by information?
Some say 90% of shopping centers are not on real estate boards and probably never will be. The same is true for apartment buildings, land and much more. It is this kind of information that can be worked quite nicely through ICI World.
In fact I believe there is more information available than actual real estate board type listings. This means all the private for sales in your marketplace could be worked by you. All the private for sale by owner opportunities in your marketplace can be YOUR INVENTORY. However we recommend unique ways to handle this information so that it is compatible with how you do business and with agreements in place at the appropriate time.
We will show you the pitfalls many brokers are making and how to protect yourself so that you can make money on "information" not just "listings." Just because we work open and exclusive listings does not mean there are not agreements in place before divulging property information or showing the property.
The readership is world wide with over 100 countries accessing information daily. There are opportunities in your marketplace now! You can place them here so fast and receive response you will be delightfully surprised. We hear this all the time.
As long as you have a license to trade in real estate, you should be a member. If we do not have a licensed real estate broker member in your area, then can a buyer or seller can join, otherwise this is a free service to the public to read information but when you a principal posts information Free in the FSBO Area only the real estate broker members can read it. There are over 13,000 privately placed opportunities now that members can read and contact principals directly. There are over 13,000 listings in the public area.
