Over the past decade, the rapid advancement of technology has made commercial real estate (CRE) market data more readily available. In the coming years, technological advancements in machine learning, super applications, and the continued evolution of third-party CRE data platforms promise to change the way in which real estate executives obtain, view and validate market information. In this session, we’ll examine how the increasingly information-rich CRE marketplace will affect corporate outsourcing arrangements with real estate companies, and potential of disintermediation of modern commercial brokerage.

Most frequently, CREs will negotiate with developers for Build-To-Suit projects, but the market is dynamic and other approaches, such as direct contracting methods and direct financial arrangements, are increasingly being used. We will explore and discuss different options and the paths to success for each one.
