64 August 2018 RISMedia's REAL ESTATE {Strategies} Staying Ahead of the Game With Comprehensive Market Research REALTORS PROPERTY RESOURCE® A BOON TO THE COMMERCIAL SECTOR by Keith Loria W ith more than four decades of experience in com- mercial real estate, Danny Levison knows a good thing when he sees it. That's why the principal of Atlanta Investment Properties (AIP) is a big proponent of Re- altors Property Resource® (RPR®) when conducting market research. With a background that includes stints as a REALTOR®, investor, landlord and manager of a commercial broker- age that purchased, leased and managed multi-tenant commercial properties, today, Levison is head of both CommissionTrac and SharedSpace, a company that pro- vides coworking opportunities throughout Georgia. "I first got involved with RPR through the National Association of REALTORS®, and, as they've grown their commercial sector, they've added some tools that have helped us when it comes to analyzing buildings and de- mographics and accessing tenant information," says Le- vison. "They're making a concerted effort to make sure they're aware of everything out there while making it easy for our members to find it." Levison champions RPR thanks to its ease of use and depth of data, which allows the coworking company to run important analyses on each market it's interested in before making a firm commitment. After all, with data on more than 166 million parcels in the U.S., the service is second to none. "RPR is now providing a hub of varying services that commercial members can utilize," says Levison, who notes that there's been a faster rate of acceptance in CRE technology in the last three years than the past 30. "The rate at which acceptance is occurring is at a much faster pace each year," he adds. "It's quite beyond grassroots, and RPR is trying to be the go-to place for our commercial members." And RPR is important for all of Levison's business interests. For AIP, a combination of a brokerage business, prop- erty management and investment vehicle, RPR's data is "I first got involved with RPR through the National Association of REALTORS ® , and, as they've grown their commercial sector, they've added some tools that have helped us when it comes to analyzing buildings and demographics and accessing tenant information." - DANNY LEVISON Principal, Atlanta Investment Properties
