Yes. We accept self-nominations.

Can I nominate a company for CRE’s Best Places to Work as a third party?

Yes. We accept third-party submissions, however, please note, submitters are required to collect internal information from company employees, including a company representative (such as the head of human resources or the head of operations), as well as a full-time entry-level/mid-level employee and a full-time upper-level employee.

Can previously chosen Best Bosses or Best Places to Work be nominated again this year?

To avoid redundancy, we try to vary the professionals and companies that we profile from year to year. However, you may submit a nomination for a previously selected Best Boss and/or Best Place to Work by including updated details and testimonies that do not mirror the previous year’s submission.

Editorial staff will send email notifications to the chosen professionals and companies, as well as their submitters, by early January. Due to the high volume of nominations that we receive, only those selected will be notified.

CRE’s Best Bosses and Best Places to Work will be profiled in the March/April 2022 issue of GlobeSt. Real Estate Forum, which will be distributed in early April. The chosen professionals and companies will additionally gain recognition on GlobeSt.com.

Is there a fee to apply?

No. Submission to this, as well as all of our editorial content, is free.

How do I increase my chances of being selected?

Be as descriptive, yet concise as possible. Sounds redundant, but it’s simple. Provide details on why you think your nominee should be chosen for this recognition, but leave out the fluff, like marketing content and self-congratulatory comments. Don’t hide the items of importance within pages of trivialities. Support your entry and statements with backup information—we love facts and figures.
