Xceligent KARNES LogoINDEPENDENCE, MO (January 5, 2015) – Xceligent, Inc., a leading provider of proactively researched commercial real estate information and marketing solutions, is pleased to announce it has made a strategic investment into Karnes Research Company, a North Carolina-based provider of commercial real estate analytics, information, and marketing solutions.

Xceligent will leverage Karnes’ renowned analytics, in addition to over 25 years of experience in the Carolinas, to both expand its coverage and further enhance its fully researched commercial real estate information. This relationship further enhances Xceligent’s ability to serve clients across the Carolinas.

“We are thrilled to have one of the industry’s best and longest serving providers of analytics join us as we continue to build a strong national alternative for commercial real estate information,” said Doug Curry, Xceligent founder and CEO. “Combining these two extraordinary teams creates a strong foundation for the expansion of our market analytics team and allows us to deliver best of breed information to the industry. Over the years, the Karnes professionals have established the reputation of being the best in the Carolinas market and we are excited to have them join Xceligent,” he added.

“We were drawn to Xceligent after meeting their incredible team and experiencing firsthand their relentless efforts to provide the most accurate and reliable market information,” said Andrew Jenkins, Managing Partner of Karnes Research Company. “There was no other company we would trust to form the base of our analytics moving forward and we are excited that we now have the perfect match to grow our analytic services nationally.”

The Karnes partnership is yet another step in a series of steps intended to bring best-of-class technology offerings and additional data to accelerate the enhancement of Xceligent’s product offering and expansion of its footprint. In addition to its market reports and analytics services, Karnes offers a property-centric CIE solution and an apartment information solution. The partnership will create a strong footprint in the Carolinas, following last year’s launch in the Raleigh-Durham market.

Currently available in over 44 markets and expanding into the largest 65 US markets by 2016, Xceligent will next launch the Orlando and Houston markets and will work with Karnes’ subscribers and their local real estate association partners to expand into the Carolinas markets.
