Commercial Real Estate Research Forum (CRERF) is a Houston-based
professional organization established in 1988. The organization's purpose is to provide the commercial real estate research professionals a forum to network and to enhance communication between and for its
members. It is the mission of CRERF to promote effective research capabilities in the real estate industry by providing professional development opportunities and the exchange of ideas and information among its members.
CRERF also invites several speakers throughout the year to present
insights on various topics related to the national and local economies and
the commercial real estate industry. Please click on Upcoming Events on

Over the past 20 years, CRERF has grown from a three-member
organization into more than 70 members in the greater Houston area.
CRERF has contributed significantly to improving the quality of research and data collection, providing education on the resources that are available for its members, and facilitating the sharing of information. We welcome new members and look forward to continued growth.
Trade growth resumed for Houston in Q1/17, with both exports and imports up by double digits. Strong overseas
demand for crude, refined products, petroleum gases and petrochemicals drove export growth, while U.S. demand
for refined products, steel, chemicals, electrical machinery and alcoholic beverages drove import growth.
