The idea of an real estate Have and Want information service started out of a solution to a problem.
The Problem: Missed opportunities.
Real estate transactions are started at CCIM Real Estate Marketing Sessions. Real Estate Brokers stand up and talk about the real estate opportunities they know about. If you have someone who could be a buyer or seller, you exchange business cards and talk at a later time or outside the room about doing a potential deal, putting agreements in place before showing property, etc.
At these CCIM meetings at the Toronto Real Estate Board, I personally could not record all the Haves and Wants fast enough that were presented verbally in short 30 sec. to 1 minute increments. I personally saw it as missed opportunities for all in the room and public for whom we serve . . . the concept to solve this problem was born for the world.
Computers before the Internet were just starting to come out in 1992, floppy drives, edlin, wordperfect, 287’s. Started in 1992 as CIBBS.com (Commercial Investment Bulletin Board System) and using Quickbbs software we started a Have and Want service. A string of shopping centres in California got sold. Acres of land in Peru got sold. Inspiring.
Then in 1994 we were the first on the Internet with iciworld.com as a real estate Have and Want information service. Today it has evolved to serve the world on the Internet as iciworld.com and eighty other domain names. People from 138 countries visit monthly.

Real estate contributes mightily to the GDP of a country. We have seen so many brokers do thousands of deals over the years with information not just real estate board listings. We believe it can help to serve people in every country of the world to become more prosperous. It stimulates economic activity, commerce on a grand scale because every single trade in real estate contributes to the GDP of a nation. Resource NAHB National Association of Home Builders.
Salespeople are the ball bearings of society. Nothing would get done if something wasn’t sold.
I am in a unique position of helping brokers over the last twenty years do business that was not started on real estate boards yet done by the very members of a real estate board and with an information service. I personally believe there is ten times the opportunities in many cases for salespeople to do business than just what one can put on a real estate board.
We believe every area of the world should have both typical real estate board type services as well as the networking of exclusive real estate opportunities that are not on real estate boards for various reasons.
We think an information service can be every bit as significant as the invention of MLS itself started in the late 1800’s where brokers said “if you help me sell my properties, I will help you sell your properties.” The same is true of ICIWorld members in large part doing it with exclusive real estate information since 1994.
It is all just the beginning of a new era in 2017 with the advent of mobile networking and mobile websites . . . just the beginning of the new Internet Revolution, mobilization of the real estate industry.
We invite every broker and salesperson in the world to become part of building this world information service that can run smoothly with all real estate board services in the world.

When did it start?
1994. ICIWorld.com was the first real estate information website service on the Internet.
Started as bulletin board service 2 years before that 1992 with CIBBS. Commercial Investment Bulletin Board System. We saw the Internet revolution coming and the rest is history.
Every year there is something new. 2017 it is the new Internet revolution of mobilization of the real estate industry. We help with ICIWorld Apps and the mobile site iciworld.mobi It is free to search for everyone in the world. It is real estate Haves and Wants at your fingertips. We help with mobile real estate websites for members. We hope this helps you to connect and network with others to do deals. When you are successful . . . we are successful.
Since 1994 ICIWorld.com provides services for real estate brokers and salespeople to network real estate Haves and Wants and listings of industrial, commercial and investment real estate, land, business opportunities and more with the public and do business.
Why did it start?
This means there are different types of real estate information from not listed, to open listings, to clients verbal authorizations, to know about’s, and daisy chains. We teach how to sort through all this, quickly qualify the contacts for opportunities and choose who you want to work with. One tip has made a lot of people a lot of money.
You will see a Control field in each listing. You can ask the salesperson about his relationship with the owner or buyer of a property so you know what you are working with and can decide accordingly to work with the broker or not work with the broker or to let him/her know how you would work with it.
And we teach how to recognize important information that can make you money and how to work this exclusive information in a competent and professional manner. We teach how to protect yourself so that people do not go behind your back by putting agreements in place first before divulging an address or identifying the property or showing the property.
From $1 power of sales to 1 Billion+ properties, any and everywhere on the planet earth . . . and mainly in a confidential fashion. In fact we have a category called confidential for type and another confidential for area for properties $5M – $100M and up.
We only allow licensed real estate brokers and salespeople to join in the USA and Canada. They have been trained to protect the public.

90% of people looking for real estate search the Internet. (NAR)
99% of our members are on the Internet with their own websites
- ICIWorld supplies content of listings for real estate broker and salesperson websites. Of course this triggers leads unless you have no traffic to your website. We help with that.
- It is a choice in every listing “Will you allow your listings to be advertised on other brokers websites?”
- If you answer yes, your listings, Haves and Wants will appear on 2,000+/- other broker websites.
- Because we recommend not placing addresses, they have to call you and either do a referral or work with you on selling the property.
- the benefit to the public is they get access to thousands of exclusive opportunities not available anywhere else in the world.
- the goal is to have every broker in the world collecting information and then placing it on ICIWorld to be shared with other brokers providing the ultimate in real estate information as an industry.
In other words, our members have the listings, Haves and Wants that other brokers add to ICIWorld . . . and they have them . . . on their own websites to trigger business.
It is our goal to help every member get to the top of the search engines in their own market areas.
It is our goal to teach real estate brokers and salespeople how to recognize important information, exclusive information, open listings, etc. in addition to advertising their real estate board listings and then place it on ICIWorld.
We hear a lot of talk about information services. There already are MLS services which are vital to our industry. I should know. I too have been a broker for over forty years and served on MLS committee. But with the advent of the Internet, everyone is trying to sell properties themselves on the Internet. What they do not have is the network. The network of thousands of brokers who are presently working with buyers. Who know buyers and what they want.
Every broker and salesperson in the world can now expand their opportunities to do business working exclusive real estate information in addition to real estate board listings.
I too have been a broker in real estate since 1972, and a CCIM and AMP.

We recommend updating listings every 30-60 days and in no event letting listings go longer than 90 days old. The majority of deals are done at the top of the database for two reasons:
- People get so busy working the top half of the database they do not have time to get to the bottom
- New listings and listings modified after 30 days receive an extensive circulation treatment throughout the industry. They are circulated by EMail, 10,000 to 20,000 EMails deliver information daily, one per day at a time to individual people who are interested in real estate. Some people only get all their information from these EMails.
- New people are subscribing to receive these EMails.
- Listings appear instantly and automatically on thousands of pages throughout the Internet.
- To maintain default listings on the ICIWorld Apps listings must be ACTIVE LISTING STATUS and less than six months old.
