How is the BCX different than other Commercial Information Exchanges?

The Birmingham Association of REALTORS® is excited to bring a new approach to a commercial real estate exchange where the focus is on making the market work.  As a trade association protecting the future of real estate and private property rights takes the lead in our endeavors. BAR and the BCRC believe that success is inevitable when we partner with our commercial agents to create a solution that empowers them. Better prices and a seat at the table will help ensure the BCX is the system of choice.  If you invest in us with your membership, by entering your listings, and by sharing your time as part of the BCRC, our promise to you is we will invest back in the commercial market in the Birmingham region and beyond.
