Commercial Real Estate On Your Mobile Phone

Commercial brokers live on their phones, and contrary to much of the hype, not all of them are iPhones. We’ve spent the past couple months listening to you and getting a feel for the types of tools that would be truly useful to the commercial broker on-the-go. Here are the features we heard requested again and again:

  • Look up a colleague’s phone number and call it, or plot their address on a map.
  • Access your available property listings.
  • Find listings for sale or lease matching particular criteria.
  • Access the latest commercial real estate news, market activity, recent sales/leases, and new properties added to the market.

Not Just for iPhones

It’s not an iPhone app or an Android app – it’s a simple, lightweight website accessible via ANY mobile device. You shouldn’t be required to have a particular phone in order to access the data you need.

Anyone can run searches, view listings and access agent contact information, but to log in, you’ll need to be a Catylist CIE subscriber.

Let us know what you think, or if you have any ideas that would make this more useful.

    This is an amazing tool! As a leasing agent with over one million square feet of office warehouse and retail space to fill, seeing what Catalyst has done with mobile technology is very exciting.

    It’s been a real eye opener to see how the technology explosion that’s occurred over the last decade has completely changed the way we now market commercial real estate. No longer do we place ads in the newpaper, or rely on site signage. It seems that those who are on the cutting edge are making considerable head-way in this very difficult and softening market.

    With the advent of smart phones it seemed as though it was only a matter of time until someone devised a way to bring the commercial real estate market to those of us who are on the go, and ready to embrace technology to the fullest.

    Bravo Catalyst…I’m excited to see what’s to come in the near future.
