Although Google crawls websites frequently for changes, keep in mind that some content may not be indexed, or may not be available for search engines to access.  In particular, information stored in databases for reference by user queries may not be accessible.  For this reason, we have also made the direct links to these sites readily available so that their content can easily be searched by whatever menu structure or search tools they may provide for users.

Although we make it very easy to find thousands of useful resources worldwide directly through this website, we share further market knowledge on request, and can quickly address many common project issues through our research capabilities and personal networks of contacts.

We look forward to working with you - to grow your business faster and better, anywhere.

Note that we maintain a very selective listing of major properties, including links to various national, provincial, state, regional, utility, and local property listing services.  The content of these lists remains limited at this time, and will improve as more organizations participate.

We also maintain a directory of major Corporate Real Estate firms, and our regional Contacts directories may include links for regional and local CRE firms.  Both may offer property listings.

We introduce executives for free to local market knowledge and valuable professional contacts as an independent global service through working relationships with many :
  •  Top executives facing strategic choices about where they will do business : where to establish, acquire, expand, move, consolidate or restructure their operations or alliances as markets and plans change.  These projects define the company's future structure.
  •  Economic development professionals representing areas which are motivated to attract and retain growing companies.  See the Contacts section for many examples.
  •  Professional service providers for direct investment projects in North America, Europe, Asia or worldwide.  Highly experienced specialists work on such projects, because large capital commitments and future performance risks are usually at stake.
