The platform was developed by expert commercial brokers to address the needs of small-scale commercial real estate owners who have long been neglected in the current market.

Once all necessary property information has been provided, Brokerfied creates a search-engine-optimized website with all available information for landlords to showcase their properties to potential customers. Other tools include a professional flyer for online and in-person marketing, signage with QR codes for owners to display on site, a Brokerfied email and phone number to safeguard landlords' private information and communication center where all property-related communications are consolidated. Relevant engagement statistics, such as QR code scans, emails, and phone calls are displayed on a user-friendly property dashboard. "We envision vacant storefronts in neglected communities coming back to life, leading to bustling activity that will revitalize neighborhoods and encourage investment," Bernier said. "There are millions of properties across the country just waiting to be utilized, and Brokerfied provides landlords the tools to unlock their full potential."
