WASHINGTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Andy Florance, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of CoStar Group (NASDAQ: CSGP), a leading provider of online real estate marketplaces, information, and analytics in the property markets, was named one of the most powerful people in commercial real estate proptech by Commercial Observer for the second consecutive year.
Andy has led the company from its founding in 1986, through its successful IPO in July 1998, to its market-leading position today as a dominant provider of commercial and residential real estate information, analytics, and online marketplaces. Despite much of the real estate industry experiencing a slowdown, CoStar Group has continued to witness incredible growth in earnings and website traffic across its industry-leading brands and is included in the S&P 500 Index and the NASDAQ 100.
The company has seen consistent positive financial results quarter-over-quarter for years. In September 2023, CoStar Group’s network of U.S. real estate websites saw over 160 million monthly unique visitors. In particular, Homes.com achieved 100 million unique monthly visitors, surpassing Realtor.com and Redfin to become the second most heavily trafficked real estate portal in the U.S.
“From the beginning, I’ve been a firm believer in the power of proptech and its ability to positively transform the commercial and residential real estate landscape,” said Florance. “We’ve built several successful platforms that adapt to ever-evolving market conditions and we work diligently to consistently introduce new opportunities, innovations and solutions to our clients and consumers. It’s an honor to be included on Commercial Observer’s Power Proptech list for the second year in a row and a true testament to the work our entire team has been able to accomplish.”
The annual Power Proptech list recognizes the most influential companies and people in the CRE proptech space who are driving change and innovation within the industry. More information about Commercial Observer’s Power Proptech List can be found here.
