The DNA of #CRE survey

The DNA of #CRE survey is back for 2020! Buildout and The Broker List join forces to bring the CRE Tech community together again.

The survey is a great outlet for the CRE community to offer feedback on how they’re using the industry’s top tech tools. In taking the survey, you’re helping to contribute much needed data to the companies in our spaces, as well as get a pulse on what your peers – and competitors – are using to their advantage.

The survey only takes 10 minutes to complete, and there are versions for both brokers and marketing professionals. The DNA OF #CRE feedback portal closes on March 30th, so while we’re all isolation – take some time to share your thoughts, feedback, or product frustrations.

Survey respondents will be eligible for prizes as the survey hits milestones like 250, 500 and 1,000 responses. Buildout will notify winners via email.
