Connect Commercial Real Estate is a full-service creative marketing and strategic media company focused on the commercial real estate industry. The Connect team brings together a multi-disciplined group of experts featuring best-in-class service and a unique collection of experience in reporting, events, marketing, branding, creative, and digital services.
Connect Media was established in 2015 in Los Angeles, California. We hit the ground running with a focus on Commercial Real Estate, starting in California with daily news; four events in Los Angeles, Orange County, West Los Angeles and the Inland Empire; and client marketing videos and creative projects.
Real estate is a regional business and as our news coverage and offerings grew market to market, so did our team. First expanding with a National daily news email in 2016, we grew quickly over the next few years with the addition of Texas, New York and the Tri-State Area, Chicago, Boston and New England, Phoenix and the Southwest, Washington DC, Florida and the Gulf Coast, Atlanta and the Southeast, and Seattle and Northwest daily emails and events and advertising to complement.
In 2019 we were named to the Inc. 5000 list for the first time and began celebrating being one of the nation’s fastest growing privately owned companies.
During the pandemic, Connect pivoted and helped our clients across all sectors pivot as well. We worked with clients across the nation to help them go digital – creating websites, improving SEO, creating and executing social media and PPC campaigns, sending out targeted emails and putting together holistic digital marketing strategies. We shifted from live events to digital events and webcasts and curated and promoted over 400 webinars from 2020 to 2022.
In 2020 we were certified by the NMSDC (National Minority Supplier Diversity Council) as a Minority Owned Business, and named to the Financial Times Fastest Growing Companies in North America list (right next to Tesla).
Connect made a strong return to live events in 2022. We continued to expand with the launch of Connect Classroom, our CRE Insider longer from news coverage and the CRE Ad & Event Shop to highlight our services. We also expanded our reach into the financial services industry with the launch of Connect Money, bringing you the information intermediaries and other financial and investment professionals need to better serve their customers and run their businesses.
In 2023 we acquired ApartmentBuildings.com, an industry leading multifamily online sales platform, serving the needs of investors, brokers, REITs, private equity firms, developers and family offices. We offer subscribers the opportunity to search for, save and list, multifamily properties nationwide, at no charge.
With a fresh, intuitive user interface, and improved search functionality, brokers, buyers and sellers will easily be able to find their ideal investment property and get maximum exposure for their listings and profiles.
In 2023 Connect CRE launched Canadian news and conferences offering daily news, networking and information to the dynamic Canadian CRE markets and community.
Today Connect Media serves b2b clients across commercial real estate and financial services. Every day we strive to positively impact these industries nationwide by better serving the people and places that we touch. Our innovative and integrated approach provides our clients with a platform to tell their stories and share their experience and success through written, digital and creative channels. We believe in a world where people come together so that true connections can be made. We live by our name in its most simplistic form: we connect people, places, content, and ideas.
In 2021, Connect CRE was recognized for the third year in a row on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., and was ranked as one of the top 10 media companies.
Connect Media has been included in the 39th annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. Connect has achieved 51% revenue growth over the last 3 years, achieving continuous, steady growth since launching in 2015.
Connect is certified by NMSDC, the National Minority Supplier Development Council as a minority owned business.
The MBE certification awarded by NMSDC reinforces what Connect has been dedicated to since its inception, diversity, equality, and inclusion within our organization. With our accomplished, highly skilled, and diverse team, made up of 50% women and a 39% minority workforce, Connect breaks boundaries while always maintaining the highest level of service possible.
