The RealNex Webinar Series continued May 21, with Dr. Jeffrey Fisher providing a Commercial Real Estate Market Update based on Q1 2020 data.

Posted by Jeff Finn on Jun 6, 2017 1:10:46 PM

When it comes to CRE marketing we have been doing the same things for a long time, but technology is adding a new spin to three principle tasks.
