There are plenty of opportunities in commercial real estate to be sourced in those groups as part of a prospecting model.

Whilst you can always choose a good and well proven CRM package to support your contact processes, everything still comes down to personal momentum and commitment as part of a prospecting model.
Growing your business?
If you are looking to build your real estate business, seriously consider your database activities and your prospecting model. Establish a system that works for you comprehensively and consistently across the location and your targeted groups of clients or prospects.
Understand who your clients are by type and by location. Understand the targeted properties that you should be working on overtime. Define your territory and your priority buildings. From that point on, your prospecting model can take shape and the database can grow effectively and directly.
