  • Submissions from 400 companies;
  • Salary, bonus, incentives and benefits for 200 CRE positions; and
  • Data from 120,000 distinct jobs in the office/industrial, retail and residential property sectors.

You will have access to data you can sort by:

  • Company type (public or private);
  • Real estate specializations (development of office/industrial, retail, or residential; brokerage; asset management; land development; and Other); and
  • Seven U.S. regions and up to 28 metro areas.

This company-level survey should be completed by your company’s Human Resources or Financial/Accounting Executive.  All responses are strictly confidential.  Please note: If your company participated in a previous survey, contact Janet Gora first to set up your account and preload your data.
