Top 100 Commercial Real Estate Company Websites

Joe Stampone Innovation/Technology, Start a Company 29 Comments

When working on the redesign of the Atlas Real Estate Partners website, I personally reviewed 1,000’s of real estate company sites and pulled elements from what I thought to be the best in terms of design, functionality, innovation, and branding. Through this process I learned that real estate firms generally don’t care about branding and it’s apparent in their company web design and general online presence.

However, there are a number of firms who are pushing the envelope, learning from their counterparts in more innovative niches, and understand the importance of creating a strong brand that transcends the real estate business.

Here’s the top 100 CRE Company websites as of 2016:

A few disclaimers:

  • This is by no means exhaustive. I’m sure there are some great sites that I missed. Please submit your favorite sites in the comment section and I’ll update the list periodically.
  • I excluded property sites and focused purely on company sites.
  • Don’t get caught up on the numbers. 1 and 5 are interchangeable as is 20 and 25 and 40 and 45.
  • I focused exclusively on U.S. real estate companies.
  • I avoided real estate brokerages (for the most part), but I included some real estate tech companies and architecture firms.
  • I took into account both design, content, and effectiveness of the sites.

If you’re looking to build out your own site and need a referral to 3rd party marketing firms, please email me at joe [at] asotreg [dot] com.  There are several groups I’ve worked with and have 100% confidence in. Don’t hesitate to shoot me an email if you’d like an introduction.

What are your favorite CRE company websites?

  • Jessica Sala

    Happy that you took content into consideration. So many don’t understand that marketing through digital includes a website that answers questions through interesting, readable content. Too many firms write for SEO and without their actual audience in mind.

  • Not sure if you forgot to change the title from 48 to 65?

  • Good call. I should update it as I add new ones. Thanks!

  • Jeff Shaw

    Thanks Joe. I am the CEO of Fairlead Commercial Real Estate. We are constantly working to be innovative and recognize the importance of creating a brand. I’m hoping to make some additional adjustments to the site as time goes on, but I sincerely appreciate the unsolicited positive comments about our site and our efforts to push the envelope. Best regards, Jeff Shaw

  • Hi Jeff,

    It’s great to see the CEO of a large brand recognize what’s being said about them online. It’s representative of your brand-focus. Great job with the site and keep pushing the business forward.

    Best,

    Joe

  • QuickLiquidity

    Hi Joe! QuickLiquidity is thrilled to be ranked on this impressive list of elegant websites. Who ever said commercial real estate can’t be sexy clearly has not been introduced to this list. The entire team appreciates this tremendous honor Joe. Thanks, A. Yoni Miller (CMO)

  • Larry Singleton

    Love your list … just wondering why you did not include brokerage sites … that’s what I am researching

  • Thanks @disqus_BGFY62mX3v:disqus . It felt like an apple to oranges comparison. Investment firms and brokerages have very different goals with their respective websites.

  • Absolutely, Yoni. Keep innovating!

  • Aaron Desatnik

    Based on this tremendously useful list, does anyone have recommendations for web design agencies?

  • Penelope

  • Daniel Black

    https://sitezeus.com/ out does them all. Looks very professional and intriguing.

  • Jill

    Joe, I stumbled upon your list while researching some CRE sites as we embark on a redeveloped and redesigned website. Two years ago, we underwent a corporate brand update and we re-skinned the website to reflect that and the new sub-brands we created for our core services. After looking at several of the sites on this list, I’m wondering if we are “over branding” currently. I’d love to hear your take. We are at http://www.uniland.com. Thank you!

  • Corrie

    Sure! We worked with Planit based out of Baltimore, MD….. but almost all of the page hierarchy, copy and pictures were primarily produced by myself and our Marketing Director, Amanda Reed. I saw our site was crossed off of your list though, bummer!

  • Rachel Pittard
  • Manny Regalado

    Hi there Quick. Could you provide the developer’s information of your site? Thanks.

  • Sure – shoot me an email at Joe [at] ASotREG.com and I can make the proper intro.

  • Peter DiGeronimo
