Global Real Estate Networking. Provided by real estate brokers and salespeople to serve the public.
We are reaching out to all real estate brokers and salespeople in the world for our industry to network in a way to serve the public with more choice using information technology as applied to our real estate industry. We have digitized real estate information to serve the public. Networking real estate opportunities, possibilities to do deals, can work and generate a lot of revenue. See testimonials
of transactions being done that were not on real estate boards yet are being done daily.
This provides more choice for the public. And the public is protected because real estate brokers and salespeople are trained in consumer protection.
Who am I? I am pleased to say that I am the manager and founder of ICIWorld, an association of real estate brokers and salespeople. I've done my fair share of selling, as most of you have, but the vision of a world real estate information service where brokers share their exclusive type opportunities has burned deeply in me since the early 1990s. Information technology and Bill Gates book Business @ the speed of thought highlighted that we have lots of information in real estate before any listing is signed. For instance, we network real estate Have and Want opportunities in our CCIM breakfast meetings at the Toronto Real Estate Board (Now Toronto Regional Real Estate Board). Many were not on real estate boards. I found that 65% of members conducted business with other chapter members. And many opportunities were not on MLS.
The problem was during networking sessions where brokers would talk about the opportunities they had, that I tried to write down all the Have and Want opportunities feverishly but could not keep track of them all. If you miss one, you could be missing making serving your prospects and clients. And yes, you are missing making money. How about all the salespeople members of the chapter who did not attend the meeting. They were missing out. All I could see was all the missed opportunities, missed transactions that the industry could have been doing if they knew who had a contact for a shopping center, a salesperson who had a tenant looking for industrial space. Someone who wanted to sell their piece of development land. Apartment buildings, development land, homes coming for sale. None of this was on any real estate board. Yet the members of the chapter individually knew about these opportunities.
The efficiency of the industry with MLS is the best if you can get a signed listing. The exchange of properties for sale and lease. But the opportunities I saw going missing were not on real estate boards but represented real opportunities to do business. If you had a buyer for a shopping center, and another member knew a lawyer who had a client that wanted to sell a shopping center, that is an opportunity for licensed real estate brokers to serve and make money! This was not on any MLS. There was no way anything worldwide was networking this kind of information.
The rest is history, Commercial Investment Bulleting Board System (CIBBS.com and CIBBS.net) and now ICIWorld.com and many others. All powered by ICIWorld.com global Internet database. And deals started to happen.
And to this day, going into 2022, I thank every member for the opportunity to serve every one of you. Always consider me and our service as a personal marketing and information assistant to every one of you personally.

It is marketing listings and networking real estate opportunities, not on real estate boards. What is new is technology tools sharing exclusive information on each other's websites and more. We have learned from you and share this knowledge. The real estate industry is at work for the public, providing more choice and the protection of every trade in real estate that all Realtors provide.
ICIWorld helps brokers and salespeople networking exclusive real estate information, advertise listings, on the Internet, on mobile devices and computers, to people from 138 countries of the world, since 1994 as ICIWorld.com with over 1,000,000 hits per month. See connections and transactions
. Some brokers have now done as many as thirty transactions.
Little known at the moment, sales due to a connection made through the ICIWorld network are among the highest in the land, higher than the giant real estate board in Canada, namely $28M. Members of ICIWorld have done three deals over $30M and $50M+. I am pleased it was done by independent broker members, salespeople, men and women of ICIWorld. One had fourteen offers.
I learned starting in real estate that one should use all the competent services to help your clients achieve the highest price and terms. If not, you can be missing out. We say everyone should include ICIWorld as a service in their marketing plans to serve their prospects and clients.
It shows you the power of the Internet to connect people to do real estate business when you have a network of people. The more broker members, the more synergy. It does not take many members to reach the six degrees of separation. We are all from each other.
It started from a CCIM Chapter in the 1990's marketing sessions in which members would stand up and share their opportunities. I had trouble feverishly writing down each opportunity, keeping track of every single Have and Want of each member who would network information such as I have "someone looking for, etc." or "I have someone who wants to sell, etc." Most properties presented by primarily commercial brokers were not on real estate boards but rather opportunities to be explored, followed up on, arrangements made to compensation if successful.
Missing one opportunity in a session like this would mean losing the opportunity to make $50,000 +/- and serving the public well. If you could not remember who had that shopping centre for sale, you could easily be missing making $50,000+/-. If you could not remember someone who had a specific buyer, and then you found a property owner willing to sell that matched the requirement, but then you can't remember who it was that had that buyer, what a travesty!
Missed opportunities, missed chances to do business, missed revenue, missed serving the public well.
Not anymore! ICIWorld.com
This service is designed for brokers to place all the real estate opportunities, not on real estate boards. List all your buyers and what they want.
AND . . . all brokers and salespeople benefit by advertising their real estate board listings as well. Why? Because the service is like real estate classified ads in a newspaper.
There are over 30,000+ oops 40,000+ listings, Haves and Wants. 75% of them are exclusive not on real estate boards yet placed by licensed real estate brokers and salespeople in the USA and Canada. The rest of the world is invited.
There are so many opportunities where someone says I do not want to give you a listing, but bring me in a buyer, and I will pay you a commission. You just became a secret agent because now you are the only one who knows about it. There is a way to market that opportunity confidentially.
The advantage for the public is more opportunities to choose from that are not available elsewhere
The advantage for members who are real estate brokers and salespeople are:
- more opportunities to serve the public by displaying Haves and Wants globally.
- more opportunities for brokers to make money with information if you can not get a signed listing
The exciting news is that all brokers in the world can do both, work opportunities where you can get a signed listing and put it on your real estate board. Still, the best service in the world and always will be. AND now, in 2022, with the advent of information technology, work exclusive real estate opportunities globally that you can not place on a real estate board because you do not have a signed listing.
All these deals resulted from connections made that were not on a real estate board. See Testimonials.

With the growth of this service, new technology has been created. One of the best tools in the whole world for brokers and salespeople is sharing each other's real estate opportunities on each other's websites.
See https://www.iciworld.com/widgets See sample websites with content of exclusive real estate opportunities all in a way that YOU get the calls. Do referrals and direct business.
All listings globally from all broker members can be displayed on all members' websites with one menu item. One instruction to your website designer accomplishes that. Thousands of listings, Haves and Wants are all arranged to trigger leads for the website owner. Members do referrals and direct business.
We appreciate the opportunity to serve you.
