RealNex, the innovative real estate technology solutions company formed by Pavonis Group, continues its progression towards becoming the most complete integration of market-leading technology solutions available for commercial real estate professionals with the acquisition of prominent listing company, BuzzTarget. 

BuzzTarget is a 3-in-1 marketing system for commercial real estate professionals allowing free unlimited listings, targeted email marketing distribution to an organically-grown community of industry professionals, and the ability to manage and distribute to private contact lists. It is recognized as one of the most powerful online marketing tools in commercial real estate today, with software that enables the user to customize and target property listings and emails to prospects; announce or receive new listing information; call for or receive offers on listings; search for investment opportunities; find financing; and locate space. It also provides globalization tools such as multi lingual, multi currency and variable units of measure for users.

The unique BuzzTarget platform also complements the other leading organizations that have already joined RealNex over the past few months, including REA, REI Wise, Property Line and Ten Eight.

“We are thrilled to bring BuzzTarget to the RealNex lineup – it’s another great example of our ongoing growth strategy of adding strategic companies that offer synergetic services to our overall mix,” said RealNex President and CEO Jeffrey Finn. “Our industry is rapidly evolving and RealNex is taking the lead in bringing more efficiency and innovation to its professionals by building a single and scalable organization with an unmatched level of resources.” 

BuzzTarget CEO Albert Aranbaev adds, “We have enjoyed strong organic growth for BuzzTarget since our launch, but the ability to join RealNex and work in concert with its other offerings is an exciting growth opportunity that will benefit both our organization and our clients.” 

"We've used BuzzTarget to streamline our online marketing for over a year now. Besides the hassle-free, weekly upload of listings and admin management system, I believe targeted communication is the way to go and these guys got it right. Joining RealNex will allow BuzzTarget to grow faster and make significant improvements in how CRE professionals think about email marketing," said Kevin Maggiacomo, President & CEO, Sperry Van Ness International Corporation.
