Membership in CORFAC International is by invitation only. Benefits include referrals, friendships, business networking, sharing of best practices, independence, access to industry tools and resources, and much more.
CORFAC is different from other commercial real estate networks because affiliation is dues-based. Affiliate firms and brokers keep 100% of their commissions, which encourages CORFAC affiliates to do business with one another. Just one referral can cover a firm’s annual financial investment in the organization.
Another distinguishing factor: Affiliates retain their independence, keeping their firm name and local identity. When CORFAC seeks an affiliate for a market, firms that are recognized in their local and/or regional markets for their knowledge and expertise have the edge.
Because CORFAC affiliates have exclusivity in their markets, firms do not compete with one another for business. In fact, this exclusivity fosters collaboration among all firms across all markets. CORFAC brokers value the opportunity to share best practices and refer clients to their CORFAC colleagues when business extends beyond their market or area of expertise. This collaboration further strengthens the trusted relationships CORFAC affiliates build and enjoy.
All CORFAC brokers have the opportunity to participate in our governance structure and help to shape the organization's future direction.
Affiliates also benefit from marketing tools and our marketing and public relations consultant, who helps build CORFAC's brand in the industry and promote business development opportunities for member firms. CORFAC uses a multichannel marketing approach, including digital, print and social media strategies, tradeshow participation and thought leadership publications to demonstrate the value proposition of working with CORFAC firms.
