Case Study: Leading Edmonton Real Estate Firm Cuts Research Time by 80 Percent

by Chase Arvanitis | May 03, 2017

Edmonton, Alberta-based Lizotte and Associates is a trusted market expert in industrial and commercial real estate, offering comprehensive professional services to investors, property owners, tenants and developers on a national scale.

The firm has built its reputation by delivering accurate information and guidance to clients, consistently and confidently.  However, they recently sought to cut the time their agents spent researching properties so they could focus more closely on building client relationships and closing deals.

Lizotte turned to CoStar Property, offering a full market inventory of properties and spaces – available as well as fully leased – searchable by market and submarket, with access to photos, aerials, maps, floor plans, stacking plans and hundreds of other details.

The results were dramatic. “With CoStar, we’ve been able to cut back our research time by 80%,” said Richard Lizotte, President and Broker. “Research for a property or client now takes us a couple of hours, if that.”  

Even better, the firm’s agents devote the additional 20-plus hours a week they’ve gained to developing new business leads, which in turn generates more revenue for our company.  Says Lizotte, “it’s a genuine win-win.”
