About Commercial Real Estate Direct

Commercial Real Estate Direct was founded in 1999 with the idea of bringing high-end news and information to professionals in the commercial real estate industry.

The editors and staff of Commercial Real Estate Direct recognize the complexities involved in operating in the commercial real estate industry. Not only must participants know who is raising equity, from whom and for what, they also have to know who is providing debt and at what cost. That means knowing what's happening in the commercial mortgage backed securities, or CMBS market.

Commercial Real Estate Direct is the only source -- in print or otherwise -- that keeps close tabs on the entire real estate capital markets industry. It provides up-to-date market intelligence on the mortgage business, equity raising, investment sales and CMBS.

The service provides this market intelligence through enterprising daily news reporting by its staff of seasoned real estate journalists. In addition, it provides a daily digest of relevant real estate news by culling through some 100 publications and summarizing important stories.

It also provides a host of information through the Property Sales Database, which details more than 4,000 large property transactions; CMBS Pricing Matrix, the industry's only weekly pricing survey and the CMBS Pipeline, a calendar of upcoming transactions with historical pricing information.

If you have any suggestions on how we can improve our service, please give me a call or send e-mail. Thank you for your interest in Commercial Real Estate Direct.
