      Hi Allen!

      Thank you so much for this addition. You’re right. This is very important to note!

  2. I find it interesting that CoStar Brokerage Applications (formerly REApplications) was not among those mentioned. Any particular reason? They have all of the same all of the same functionality as those mentioned, plus a few more features that I am aware of.

    The cool thing about Ascendix is you can utilize them for more than their CRM platforms. For example, if you’re already using Salesforce you can increase the value of your solution with their “Search” app for Salesforce, Composer brochure tool or you can use their managed services team to improve or develop your CRM at a competitive rate. Even better, this CRM managed services team has extensive experience with CRE. Lots of options!
