Buildout Announces Acquisition of ProspectNow

Chicago, IL—Buildout, the developer of the premier commercial real estate (CRE) dealmaking platform used by over one-third of brokers, today announced that they acquired ProspectNow, a premier provider of AI-powered real estate property and owner intelligence. As part of this acquisition, Buildout will integrate ProspectNow with its solutions.

"The ProspectNow team has built an impressive, machine-learning enabled property and owner intelligence operation,” said Kirk Ziehm, CEO of Buildout. “By combining our companies, we’re taking a big step toward realizing our shared mission of enabling CRE professionals to be more productive and successful by connecting all stakeholders with a platform that drives CRE prospecting and dealmaking."

ProspectNow, the premier property and owner database with over 155 Million properties and 18 million businesses, enables users to find contact information for any property owner and view properties predicted to sell or refinance in the next 12 months.

“Our vision has always been to pipe the highest quality data and intelligence directly into the prospecting and dealmaking solutions brokers use” said Steve Wayne, CEO and founder of ProspectNow. “We’re excited to partner with the Buildout team who shares our passion for empowering CRE professionals to be more productive and successful.”

“Not only are their markets and solutions complementary, but also the ProspectNow and Buildout teams share a vision and passion for delivering a world-class, full-lifecycle CRE broker deal-acceleration platform,” said Riverside Managing Partner Loren Schlachet.
