Commercial Real Estate Professional Investor Group

Commercial Real Estate Professional Investor Group (CREPIG) says Hello world!

The Commercial Real Estate Professional Investor Group (CREPIG) was created on LinkedIn in March 31st of 2008 and has grown to over 6500 members at the time of this blog entry.

CREPIG was also opened up on the web at in November of 2008 and now has around 1700 members.  The web site is much more descerning about it’s member and we have knocked off over 400 members in the past for spamming other members or shady deals.  CREPIG on the web insists on a recognizable head shot and completed profile before you are allowed to join.

The idea is to keep the quality of user at a very high level. CREPIG on the web is a very powerful group site that, unlike LinkedIn, allows a users blog posts to be searchable on the web. It also allows the member to upload video, documents and pictures. The Blogs and Forum areas are completely customizable for content with imbedded pictures and video also.

The huge power behind CREPIG is not just the quality of members or the searchable blogs and forums and is not even about the 24/7 CRE news from most of the major CRE news services, but the true power lies in the forum posts which not only populate the CREPIG site, but can be viewed by the more than 6500 members on LinkedIn in the CREPIG on LinkedIn News Section and is also fed directly to CREPIG on Twitter to over 10,000 targeted Twitter followers in CRE, Finance and Commercial Property related fields of all types.

This means that a single forum post has the potential to reach over 15,000 eyeballs at one time! This is very powerful and is a no cost proposition to the member.  If you were to submit a press release for this type of targeted audience it would cost, minimally over $300 per post. You can post all day on CREPIG at no cost to you.  At this time most members have not figured out this powerful feature, even after being told many times so the power is still wide open for now. This can not be a free service forever.

CREPIG is starting alliances with growing and influential companies and networks in the CRE space such as our new alliance with RIISnet. RIISnet is an ARGUS Software partner that has created the ADAPT platform for Commercial Distressed Assets (REO and Non-Performing Notes). RIISnet and ARGUS are working at becoming the focal point of distressed asset dissemination and CREPIG has set up the Commercial Real Estate Distressed Assets Association (CREDAA) to front end ADAPT as a social media platform.

CREPIG is also working with several other networking sites in joint to help support and share the power of each. Multi Family Insiders is one that we want to work closely with. This will bring the alliances and services of Multi Family Insiders to CREPIG’s multi family members.

This is the first of many posts from CREPIG. Our mission is to help further the abilities of CRE investors and professionals to find funding, promote their projects, products and services and help the industry through one of the most trying times it has ever seen.

Kindest Regards,
