As you may know, there has been considerable work going on the last several months toward a replacement for the Xceligent system, which fell victim to bankruptcy in December.
We are pleased to announce a partnership with Catylist Real Estate Software, Inc. Catylist is a major player in the commercial real estate industry and has a proven track record in over 20 major markets nationwide. The Catylist system is a complete commercial real estate platform, which will be offered through the St. Louis REALTORS® wholly-owned subsidiary, St. Louis Commercial Data Systems (see our new logo above). Catylist staff will operate the platform, research property for the system and provide training through webinars and local office visits. St. Louis Commercial Data Systems, in conjunction with St. Louis REALTORS® Commercial Division, will provide subscriber registration, billing services, accounting services and other administrative support.
Submitting Listing Inventory – This is critical!
Catylist has started the process of building the St. Louis metro area commercial listing and property inventory database. Catylist staff are standing by, ready and waiting for our data. We encourage all commercial real estate professionals to email all “For Sale” and” For Lease” opportunities, listing brochures and inventory spreadsheets to email@example.com. There is no charge for this initial build-out and information compilation. Catylist has already been in contact with the surrounding counties and is in the process of loading all applicable tax data and parcel information into the system but we need your help to make this a success! CLICK HERE for a copy of the listing template spreadsheet.
The build-out and compilation of data will take time but the goal is to have the system viable and live by May 1, 2018.
Initial Training Webinar – March 27, 2018
Catylist is holding an initial Webinar Training Session for all future users, including future subscribers and office administrators on Tuesday March 27, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. To register please CLICK HERE. Don’t miss this important date to get a thorough overview of the Catylist platform. The system is an extremely impressive and robust product.

Catylist offers its own “Haves” and “Needs” email system.

If you have not already heard Xceligent, one of the major commercial data vendors serving this area, has closed its doors effective at 5 p.m. on December, 14. We are aware that many of our members were subscribers to the Xceligent service and have been negatively affected by these developments.
We are in contact with the National Association of REALTORS, MARIS, and other key individuals and organizations, in efforts to get more information and to determine possible alternatives solutions for you and your firms to utilize.
We will keep you posted as more information becomes available. We are sending this message also as a reminder of the Commercial Broadcast Email System service, which is available to you with your St. Louis Commercial REALTORS membership.
STL CIE is a FREE St. Louis Commercial REALTORS® member benefit. Over 700 members automatically receive the Needs & Haves emails (unless they have unsubscribed). Approximately 25% of St. Louis Commercial REALTORS® have already registered.
This easy-to-use program allows all commercial members to post information about Needs & Haves, and search posts by criteria. Members can manage their preferences to control what type of email notifications they receive. The system notifies all users whose preferences match the have or needs posted and it will also notify users of any updates to those posts. Postings can include documents, website links, photos, along with the typical listing data including location and price, etc. Visit stlcie.com to get started!
