    Thanks for the run, Bro! Hope all is well.

  • rsky1

    Duke…I am humbled again to make the list. As usual, I will be using your post in my weekly email blasts and FB and Linked in accounts…keep the good stuff coming my friend.

  • Mark

    Thanks Duke. Appreciate being included with so many great commercial real estate colleagues.

  • Thanks Duke, appreciate being included.

  • Thanks Duke. Keep up the awesome work. Your thoughts are always some of my favorite!

  • Richard Harris

    Thanks Duke, but it’s time I earned your plaudit … otherwise leave me out in 2015.

    Shortly, I’ll be launching Immobilium. It’s an open real estate data platform where all can insert information and all can consult it. Free-to-use, no-frills, boundary-breaking, paradigm-shifting (?), knowingly-naïve, Truth-Trust-and-Transparency-Inside.

    It’s all very simple. If you have a geographical data set that you think would make interesting reading, then you can share it on Immobilium. The data is yours and is seen to be yours. All we do is tidy up the format and put it on a searchable map. Every link shows who supplied the data (you) and how to get further information (from you).

    You can share any sort of list you like. Here are a few examples …

    LEED certified buildings worldwide –
    Charter Hall global investment portfolio –
    1. Tallest buildings in the world –

    Investment transaction in Italy –

    If you want to know if I really deserve to be in the Duke Long 150, please get in touch and I’ll send you a simulation of the Immobilium website. Better still, let me know if you have some data to share whilst we are still in the pilot stage.

    Thanks, Richard
