Well. Welcome, everyone. Looking at the counter. I'm pleased not to be talking to myself for a change. I'm doubly pleased that you can hear me this time apologies if you tuned in yesterday and you couldn't hear me. I'm Richard Yorke. I'm a Director at the CoStar Group. For those of you who don't know CoStar, is in my opinion the most successful property and technology business in the world. It's a Fortune 500 company with the market cap of 28 billion dollars and is the most valuable company of its type. Anyway, our Founder and CEO Andrew Florance is a force of
nature and a visionary. He grasped before most others the potential transformational change to know you could bring to be a state. and he's doing just that and doing it very successfully. For my small part, I've worked at real estate and information technology for over 20 years, I've worked for a number of brokers, investors, and Information Technology businesses over that period. I'm also a member of the RICS and I'm currently leading CoStars investment sales products
Over 240 billion dollars of property was listed for sale on the CoStar network last year and we plan to significantly improve our volume and value of the sale listings supported by the release of new additional innovative features on the platform in a good position to muse about the topic of democratization, true digitalization of commercial real estate. Democratization through digitalization. That's what I want to talk about. What do I mean by that
