Commercial Real Estate Professional Investors Group

This stands for the Commercial Real Estate Professional Investors Group.  It was started on LinkedIn and has grown to over 2100 users since March.   Here is the link to Join:  www.linkedin.com/e/gis/79765

CREPIG was set up to allow commercial real estate professional investors, lendors, consultants, developers, financial institutions and others network together in order to give or find funding and expertise to close and complete deals.  CREPIG is interested in the funding of Socially Responsible, Concious and Green projects and is especially interested in the sustainabilty of social business entities.

My group was growing very fast and although LinkedIn was adding news and Discussions to the groups it wasn’t enough.  I needed to get everyone to a place where they could serve and get served.  A place where you could blog, have discussions, tie groups together, do more with your own page and much more.  I love LinkedIn, but it is adding very slowly and most of the professionals I speak to want to get going.

Using Ning

I started a Ning site for the group and it is also growing very fast.  It’s a pretty amazing site.

Come Join the PIG

The acronym of CREPIG has given me some grief, but I have decided to embrace it by calling the site The PIG.  Yes you too can join the PIG….  I have added RSS news, videos, pictures, forums and plenty of great groups.  If you are in finance, commercial real estate or any of a number of occupations and companies that deal with real estate and funding of projects big and small; you are allowed to promote your product, service or project in many different ways.

Come check out the new site at www.CREPIG.com.
