TORONTO, May 1, 2019 - CoStar Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: CSGP), the leading provider of commercial real estate information, analytics and online marketplaces, along with JLL, has announced a five-year renewal of their agreement. JLL has again chosen CoStar as a commercial real estate information provider in Canada-connecting CRE professionals at one of Canada's fastest-growing commercial real estate firms with up-to-date, verified information on properties across markets-including rent and sales comps, occupancies, concessions, high-quality visual content and more.
Pursuant to the agreement, JLL will continue to use CoStar Suite for data requirements nationally, in Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary, Ottawa and Edmonton. CoStar offers a searchable, inventory of properties and commercial real estate spaces, including office, industrial, retail, multifamily and land.

JLL now has access to newly offered sub-market analytics, underwriting and forecasting services provided by CoStar.
'JLL was one of CoStar's first clients in Canada, and we are proud to be continuing and growing our 5-year long relationship,' stated CoStar Canada Managing Director, Mark Ibbotson. 'Through its use of CoStar Suite, we believe JLL will continue to increase revenues and productivity, develop business faster, serve clients better and earn more commissions.'
One of JLL's top priorities is the use of technology innovations to help brokers identify smart opportunities and help clients take advantage of them quickly. CoStar's focus on innovation enables JLL maintain its reputation as an early adopter of technology solutions while serving clients better.
