Global real estate players are paying more and more attention to tech these days.  Sometimes building it from scratch can be too much of a left field, "non core" diversion.  How many of us have wasted time on the start up that never happened? All those millions....


CBRE have taken the brave move and spent money to acquire new tech and get a march on their competition.  This could mark a sea change in how real estate professionals view technology.  An investment, not just a cost.  The forecasts for Floored underpin a sound financial investment.  I believe we will see more of these deals happening as technology becomes more central to professional services offer.  Well done CBRE - let's follow their lead.
