Chicago; Oct. 6, 2010 –   The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM)  today announced that Chicago-based Catylist Real Estate Software has joined its  “Industry Partner Program.”  Launched in mid-2009, the program was created to help providers of products and services to the real estate management industry enhance their personal connections to IREM Members on a cost-effective basis. Recognizing that these providers have much useful information to share, it calls for coordinating knowledge exchange through IREM print, electronic and face-to-face communications in ways that benefit both the providers and the IREM membership.

Catylist builds commercial real estate software to help buyers, sellers, brokers, companies, and economic development groups share and analyze commercial real estate data (properties, transactions, agents, companies, etc.).  The company serves more REALTOR associations than any other commercial information exchange (CIE) provider.  Catylist also markets a new product called AgentLink, developed for individual commercial real estate professionals who are looking for an affordable web presence.

The IREM Industry Partner Program is offered at four levels of financial investment – Chairman, President, Director, and Executive – and can be tailored to meet the specific needs of each partner. Benefits include direct and online educational presentation opportunities, advertising (print and electronic), exhibiting at national events, use of membership lists for direct mail, and access to top IREM leaders as partners and colleagues.

Current industry partners are Yardi Systems (Executive Chairman Level); RealPage (Chairman Level); Rent Manager (President Level); Union Bank,, and Outlast (Director Level); also, Circumspex, SealMaster, and the newly added Catylist (Executive Level).
