Choose your partnership level

You don’t have to make a financial contribution to support the DNA of #CRE. We have two partnership levels where, in exchange for promoting the survey across your networks to help us get more people to participate, you will have opportunities to expose your brand to the DNA of #CRE audience or be actively promoted by Buildout and theBrokerList.

We know the beginning of the year can be a busy time—if you’d rather support us financially or are interested in additional brand exposure, we have options for sponsoring a raffle prize!
