Senior Real Estate Analyst
Oxford Properties Group
“Thank you for coming to the office and running us through all the recent
improvements to the website. The training was very helpful and demonstrated new functions we will now use.
The data has improved over the last 12 months and CoStar’s research methods are very thorough. The retailer
branch list service is of particular value!”
NB Real Estate
“I found the CoStar FOCUS site extremely user friendly, the training was
succinct and the product will provide easily accessible information that will enable us to gain a good
insight into the property market at micro and macro level. I look forward to working with CoStar and
yourself in the future.”
Director of Marketing
The New Swindon Company
“Over the last year, we have used the service regularly as a research tool.
We have saved many hours of professional time which would have been spent sourcing comparables. We have
produced marketing reports, which have been provided to clients, and we have used the property search facility
to investigate what properties are on the market in a given area. We regularly get pestered by the market
researchers, which can be a pain at times, but it shows the dedication being given to sourcing market comparable
information. This in turn reinforces the completeness of the site as a research tool.”
Timothy Lea & Griffiths
“FOCUS is used throughout our company departments and it has been noted that
there has been an expansion generally of the information available via the product in the last 12 months,
including the London occupiers data set. I would recommend that you conduct the training in our other offices.”
