Why have a ICIWorld Executive Membership?

"the Resource Center alone is worth the price of having a membership."

The Resource Center!




Links are provided for Executive Members

"It opens up the whole world."

This private area is a collection of commercial real estate resources, contacts that can benefit you in the commercial real estate industry.  It is by no means the definitive source but rather a jumping off point, signposts leading you to the highway of information that you may wish to acquire.

It is a collection in my travels on the internet since 1995 when there were only 25 commercial real estate sites on the internet.  This service provides a window to the world for you.

For instance, you will find all the sites on the Internet that do commercial real estate. If you go off and eventually do a deal with someone, then it was this service that helped you do that deal.

There will also be individual links to FSBO's. This area also is collects private information directly from principals. Names, addresses, and/or phone numbers. It is intended to help identify opportunities to do business directly with the owners, buyers, tenants, etc.

It is also intended to help you find very helpful and beneficial links, programs that help you, ideas that help, tips and tricks, and much more to help you take advantage of information technology.

There public sites and resources that can provide you with business information not only for commercial real estate world wide and locally but also for personal use.

Do not expect to go through this list in one hour, one day or one week.  You could actually spend a lifetime depending on your interests.  But develop the skill necessary to find what you want in just a few minutes.  The following will help you do that the rest of your life.

We will continually update resources here.  It is our pledge to help you benefit from information technology.  If you can benefit from one tip, one contact or one piece of information through any of these resources, then we hope you will credit The Market ICI Network with helping you find that information.  We hope to always earn your continued patronage through this and the other value added services that we provide.

I would also like to thank all those who have contributed information for the benefit of the industry.  If you have programs and sites that would be helpful, please do forward your ideas to EMail

If and when this Resource Center is a benefit to you in any way shape or form would you kindly let me know?  I always like hearing about the nature of how these benefits help people.

Gary Nusca, CCIM


ICI World is not just about ICI World, it is about you benefiting the ICI Professional in many other ways that can help.  In that sense we are a marketing, information and education assistant,  keeping you up to date and plugged in on the benefits of technology.  Those without it will spin their wheels and not be as productive.

Links provided to Executive Members

Members have access by membership to the Resource Center.  The following is what is contained in the Resource Center.  The difference is that the links are provided in the Resource Center to members, not here.  Many members say this service alone was worth the price of subscribing.  Your thoughts appreciated.  It has taken a lot of time and effort to accumulate these links over the years and we hope you appreciate that.  They are yours when you become a member.

People have asked me "what is covered in the Resource Center?"  The following is a table of contents so to speak.

All Commercial Real Estate Sites on the Internet

Accounting Packages

This is available in most computer stores under $100.  It can do invoicing and handle your business.  It interfaces with your bank so that you can download your bank account from your bank and do your reconciliation. Our bank account is on the screen in Netscape!  When someone makes a deposit I can within a few seconds see their deposit instantly all day long.  You could open more than one window of netscape and keep your bank account open in one window while doing other things in other windows of netscape all day long.  (tip: do two and three searches simultaneously on the internet for anything by opening two or three windows of netscape at the same time. Flip back and forth between windows.  While waiting for one search go start another, etc.  This way you will be accomplishing two to three times as much as everyone else on the internet!)

Apartment Owner Site

Auto Insurance Comparison Chart for the Toronto Area


Providing information on the monetary policy, the weekly financial statistics and the current currency rate.

Do all your banking on the internet.  With it you can check your account within a minute.  With a  program you can transfer your banking accounts to your computer and have a complete accounting program.  Of course other banks also have programs as well. You can pay bills directly from your computer on the internet.  Since it keeps a record and since you can set up expense accounts all you have to do is supply this to your accountant at the end of the year and your tax return is done.  No need to fill out cheques to pay bills, lick envelopes, paste stamps, go to the mailbox, bills can be set up to be paid automatically if you want as well.

Classified Ads

Help principals. They are placing commercial real estate in classified ads in the newspaper.  They need assistance to sell their property.  This can be a great source of business for all members of The ICI World Network.  Contact the principal and at the very least if you do not get an exclusive agreement to sell, obtain the information and ask them if it is okay to place it on ICI World.  Ask them if they would agree to sign a 48 hour exclusive listing if you happen to find someone interested.  Make your own arrangement for compensation.  You should be able to place 20 listings on this service within the first month!   One showing, one sale and you make a lot of money.  Members have done this and properties have sold!
  Free classified ads for personal.  Same deal as above.

One of the largest national listing service of homes For Sale By Owner.  Although this service is for homes, you can see it coming for commercial real estate. In order to compete, real estate brokers and salespeople need an information service that competes effectively with these kinds of services.  When Executive Members place their information in a timely manner then this service becomes that tool!

Our premise is that real estate brokers and salespeople hear about literally every buyer and what they are looking for and every person thinking of selling.  By capturing this information and placing it on this service, a few thousand real estate people literally can present the market of opportunities all in one place.  This provides for instant showings leading to transactions.  This is fast.  It is incumbent upon the real estate professional to first of all recognize a piece of information that can make one money and act quickly by placing it on this service and following up with others that have a corresponding have or want.  The collection and delivery of information continues to be a priority.  We have found ways to do in the fastest, possible, simple and most convenient ways possible on earth today.  If anyone sees anything you think we should also be doing, please do let us know.  It is now our belief that there is nothing that any other service does that we can now not do on your behalf thereby giving you the full tools necessary to compete successfully in todays new millenium of information services.

For Sale By Owner networks.  I believe this kind of site is the start of some real good competition to a real estate brokers business it is a for sale by owner network.  You really have to be on the ball so to speak and justify your services.  There is no question real esatate people provide services that are vital to a homeowner and people in business.  For instance, one broker I know obtained residential listings by saying one thing; would you trust someone looking at your home with your wife and children at home when it could be a motorcycle gang?  He got the listing everytime.  He was an older gentleman and it was like having insurance to have him handle their families sale.  In commercial real estate one idea, there are many reasons why one needs a commercial broker.  This will be the subject in another article.


The most important development in commercial real estate the past week
was a ruling by Revenue Canada allowing
businesses to deduct the cost of entertaining clients at golf courses
following a round of golf. While the news is considered to be a
substantial benefit to golf course operators, it is even better news to
brokers trying to justify to their managers why they should entertain
the clients at the golf course. Recognizing that golf
is the national sport of the real estate
industry, our web-site contains many links to golf web-sites in the
Resources section of each City Page.

May 5, 1997 marked both the beginning and the end of an age for the real estate
industry in Ontario. The launch of self-management, through the Real Estate Council
of Ontario (RECO), marked the finale of 25 years of industry advocacy for this
initiative. While new to this province, self-management is not new in Canada; its
benefits to all stakeholders have been proven by the real estate industries in British
Columbia, Quebec, Saskatchewan and Alberta.

In my opinion this may be one of the most practical down to earth applications of the usefulness of the internet.

May I give you an example of personal use? Health conditions.  If you ever want to find out more about any medical condition, get the exact spelling of the condition, go to www.altavista.com, type it the condition and put quotations marks around it.  A list will appear.  You can then investigate by clicking on these links.  A personal family member had a condition called Menieres Disease.  It is a condition of the ear that can cause dizziness, earaches, etc.  One would be worried to drive a car.  Although there is no cure, there are things one can do to not aggravate the situation.  The doctor was not 100% up to date about what one could do.  On the internet I found if one cut out chocolate and caffeine the incidences of dizziness would be minimized.  It just so happened my family member had coffee and a chocolate each day.  Once stopped the dizziness stopped the next day!  This did not come from our doctor. It was from a specialized report by another Doctor whose specialized in and studied this disease and placed his findings on the internet.  Further there were health groups and people who shared their experiences on the internet and this made my family member feel better for the understanding that it provided.

So search www.altavista.com for any medical condition.  You can of course search any search engine but this has been the most productive and useful site for me on the internet for many things.  I just feel comfortable with it.  Some of the computer journals and reporters have given it the highest marks in reports comparing search engines.  It will also lead to medical sites and the like so don't just stop there.

Search Engines

How New Agents Can Get on the Web. If you are a new agent, you are already challenged by the difficulty of getting your business up and running.  You have to build a local foundation of business before you can hope to compete on the Internet. Once you have done that, you are ready to bring the building blocks of your business to the Web. (article in Realty Times - Agent News)

This search engine searches search engines. One of the best they say - searches 11 other search engines, also searches usenet, FTP, stock quotes, business news and other searchable databases.

You will find all kinds of search engines in the world.  I personally use this one.  In my experiences from reading computer journals and reporters comparisons of the information received on any topic, this one seems to be at the top.  This is not to say it is a definitive answer for everything.  But in the essence of time, it has proven to be very productive.  I use it for virtually all kinds of searches.  If you have another search engine that you deem productive I would be happy to place it here as well.

Now if there was one engine that can top it, it is this one.  It is a search engine that searches search engines!  One thing it did recently was solve a problem of "what if you know an address and want the name of the company?"  Try that on for size with the search engine that you like.  It did it successfully!  You may have to place the address in quotes so that it searches the whole phrase not each word separately.  Learn how to do this, it is very important to finding information in the world today.  If you do not know how, call me now and I will explain.  ie: if you search real estate, it may find every occurrence of the word real and every occurrence of the word estate.  What you really want is the occurrence of the two words together.  You do this by searching "real estate" ie: putting quotation marks around the phrase that you want to find.

This engine enables you to search iinformation from over 1,800 ADDITIONAL premium sources. All the search results are combined into a neat very usable report.

On top of that the results are combined with premium data in one search giving you access to books, magazines, databases, and news wires not available from any other search engine.

The results are returned prioritized AND ALSO organized into Custom Search Folders created for you on each search.

There has been a resurgence in recent weeks of messages concerning
alleged viruses that supposedly can be transmitted via e-mail
messages. Alleged viruses such as "Join the Crew" or Good Times" or
"Penpal Greetings" are hoaxes; they are not real viruses. (Messages
that tell you that a virus will infect your computer simply by having
you read it are not true; no such virus exists. The only way a virus
can infect your computer is if you load it into your computer or you
execute an infected program. See this site for more information.)
