ontariocommercialbrokers.com is an affiliate website of The Market ICIWorld.net INC. ICIWorld.com is our main operations website.
The ICIWorld IDX is an information data exchange between our two databases and Member Subscriber websites. The real estate information is streamed onto their websites for them to market themselves with, generate leads, and do referrals.
You will purchase an Real Estate IDX license from ICIWorld.com and then install the ‘links’ under an ‘Exclusives’ main menu heading. Getting started takes only a few minutes and the real estate information is available instantly on your website once the installation is complete.
We work with most of the top real estate website providers. Many of those companies will do the installation for you. If you have a web designer you can order the IDX Installation package and forward that to them. Our tech support department will do the installation for a small fee.
We offer complete one-on-one support to all member subscribers over the internet using an online meeting room. We encourage you to make an appointment when you need assistance.
We consider websites to be like a billboard on the information highway, also known as the internet. We make every effort to reach as deeply as we can into the real estate market to better serve our member subscribers.
Every day, from all over the world, network users add their real estate haves, wants, and coming soon to the database. We maintain two databases. Database One is reserved for our Member Subscriber real estate information. Database Two receives real estate information from the Public, who may also be real estate professionals but are not Member Subscribers.
Only licensed real estate brokers and salespeople may join and place information in databases 2. Database 2 is receiving over a quarter of a million hits per month with major distribution throughout the world.
Principals may join only where we do not have a licensed real estate member broker or salesperson in the area.
Yes but only where we do not have a licenced real estate broker member in an area and then guaranteed for one term only. On renewal, if there is a licenced real estate broker in your area, then we ask you to work your haves and wants through that office.
If you have a great amount of information to work with, there is a Private (FSBO) Developer Membership that permits unlimited Haves and Wants and these are emailed to the licenced real estate members of ICIWorld.com.ca within the hour of being placed. This is helpful for instance for developers who have great amounts of space for lease and wish to market this space themselves but who cooperate with the organized real estate industry.

It stands for Industrial, Commercial, and Investment Real Estate. Our service, though, also includes land, farms, businesses, financing, and more.
It has always been envisioned by our team that there will always be a need for real estate boards and real estate board-type listing services and for a world-type real estate board-type listing service. However, we also know there is a lot more information that can be worked in the industry that can make people money than can be placed on real estate boards and typical Internet Listing Services.
Some say 90% of apartment buildings in any area of the world are not on Real Estate Boards or typical Internet Listing Services which require certain written agreements to be in place. The same can be true for shopping centers, office buildings, businesses, and much more. You will find them on ICIWorld.com. Why? Because we have designed a service that fills the gap in the marketplace for commercial real estate information, not just listings. Yes, most of our members place their real estate board-type listings on the service, but it gets rather exciting when information can be worked. You will not find an $80,000,000 hotel complex on a real estate board. You can find it on ICIWorld.com. Information can be handled with the utmost discretion and confidentiality. It is up to the broker.
Every buyer that is in the marketplace should have their Wants placed. An owner who is “thinking of selling” can call the broker and see if that person might look at his/her property. These are the kinds of calls brokers in the past are not used to getting.
A broker or salesperson who is getting a listing can post a message “coming for sale.” You can say that their name will go on a list and when you get the listing signed you will call them to show it. The responses can be used mentioned in your listing presentation to help you get the listing!
All the private for sale by owner properties in your area can be placed on the service. However we suggest you have at the very least, verbal agreements, perhaps confirmed in writing that they agree to pay a commission, will cover your showing with an exclusive agreement, and agree to let you place their property on ICIWorld.com but without an address. That way it remains confidential until you have a qualified buyer. At that point, you would contact the owner and put an agreement in place for showing the property.
Yes. In fact, we recommend you do it that way to prevent people from doing directly to the owner. Many owners prefer it that way too. This way a broker can qualify people before introducing them to the property. Unlike a real estate board-type listing service, where there is enough information to draw an offer, ICIWorld.com’s goal is to help the member brokers trigger calls. It is more like an electronic equivalent of classified ads.
Is the company over-financed? ICIWorld.com has no debt. It was built that way on purpose because we have seen many companies come and go with millions of dollars in financing only to see this debt weigh them down. Their overhead gets so high they can not maintain their original level of service. The advertising either dries up or lowers and their expectations are not being met. They have no alternative but to close their doors.
Is the company built on financing numbers that work today or are projected for the future? You are seeing a lot of dot.com companies in trouble and reducing work staff and overheads. They were not built on sound fundamentals. Our company is lean and built to serve.
