Michael Taxin and Steven Renbaum (ITM, iStock)A commercial leasing startup is turning to its user base — brokers — to raise $2 million in seed funding.InTheMarket, or ITM, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Republic to get buy-in, literally and figuratively, for a new software platform. Brokers and landlords who invest $1,000 or more can also serve on the company’s advisory council.ITM was founded by CEO Steven Renbaum, who did stints at Newmark Knight Frank and Summit Real Estate Partners, and COO Michael Taxin, an alum of RKF and Newmark. They said their software streamlines the leasing process, which currently relies on a patchwork of spreadsheets and tools.The platform, for tenant representatives, has several “modules,” including a customer relationship manager, tour scheduler, tour book creator and chat function. Through the CRM, tenants and landlords (and their representatives) can exchange information about what they’re looking for and what’s available, including subleases, according to Renbaum.Its “dealroom,” which functions like a point-of-sale system, generates term sheets and creates a transaction trail and data.Renbaum said ITM sits between VTS and CoStar.“I do believe I am competing against a conglomeration of products,” he said. “There are companies that do this one thing, but in my view, the commercial real estate broker can’t use nine platforms. The idea is to consolidate.”Read moreVTS launches office listings marketplace VTS rolls out leasing data tool How CoStar became a $15B juggernaut Email Address* Tags Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Message* Full Name* Share via Shortlink Renbaum said ITM was built on spec and he decided to crowdfund its next phase of growth so brokers could invest. “I wanted to get into VTS five years ago, but I couldn’t. I’m not a VC,” he said. ITM expects beneficial feedback from brokers who invest.The startup expects to launch its platform in March for beta users and is targeting a commercial launch this summer. Brokers and landlords will pay a subscription fee for the software.Renbaum is optimistic about the market even though he feels commercial real estate will be “limping around for a little bit” post-pandemic.“But real estate isn’t going anywhere,” he said. “It might look a little different, but those buildings are going to stay there.”Contact E.B.

Two recent renovation projects by the Faculty of Arts and Sciences, Extavour Laboratory and the Science Center – Cabot Library Projects, mark the next phase in Harvard’s commitment to green buildings with their recent achievement of the first and second LEED v4 Commercial Interiors certifications in Massachusetts and on campus. Both projects sought to modernize and enhance the learning and research experience for students and faculty while featuring progressive sustainable design strategies which help to reduce energy and water use without additional cost.For nearly two decades, the University’s facilities and project planning teams have aggressively pursued and implemented high performance, green building strategies and practices driven by the Harvard Green Building Standards and ambitious climate action goals.“We applaud Harvard University’s ongoing leadership as they take the next step in raising their commitment to green building practices by utilizing LEED v4,” said Jaime van Mourik, Vice President of Education Solutions, US Green Building Council. “Harvard continues to serve as a model for how organizations can adapt and evolve to address the changing landscape of sustainable practices with the focus on health and wellbeing. These certifications serve as great case studies on what is achievable when there are proactive environmental and green building goals in place.”In October 2014, Harvard’s Green Building Standards were updated to include LEED v4, requiring all Tier 1 capital projects (all new buildings and full building renovations) to achieve LEED v4 Gold as a minimum, a full two years before the USGBC made LEED v4 a mandatory requirement. The Extavour Laboratory (registered in September 2015) and Science Center – Cabot Library (registered in February 2016) projects both voluntarily opted to pursue the more stringent LEED v4 rating, even though they were Tier 2 projects, making their certifications that much more impressive.“For many years, FAS has been committed to reducing energy use and emissions in our buildings. We are constantly pursuing improvement through new equipment, materials, and modes of operating that make the facilities more efficient, greener and healthier,” said Michael Lichten, Associate Dean of Physical Resources and Planning at FAS. “Obtaining LEED v4 in the Science Center – Cabot Library and Extavour Laboratory projects were great achievements for the team in pursuing our goals.”LEED v4 is a more rigorous standard than its LEED 2009 predecessor, incorporating improvements in the areas of health, energy reduction, material life-cycle, and water efficiency. The goals of LEED v4 are organized into seven “impact categories.” These categories are: reverse contribution to global climate change; enhance individual human health and wellbeing; protect and restore water resources; protect, enhance, and restore biodiversity and ecosystem services; promote sustainable and regenerative material resources cycles; building a greener economy; enhance social equality, environment justice, and community quality of life.LEED v4’s expanded focus on a building’s full life-cycle pushes building teams to consider not just design and construction, but also on-going maintenance and operation of the building. Building managers are encouraged to track reductions and continuously monitor and measure in the areas of energy, water, materials, waste, and health and human experience. Read Full Story
MAYVILLE – Chautauqua County District Attorney Patrick Swanson’s budget presentation last week saw no requests for additional attorneys in his office for 2021.Swanson told WNYNewsNow during a recent interview that he wasn’t seeking new attorneys, unlike in the past, due to fiscal challenges that the County, itself, was going to face because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The prosecutor doubled down on his comments when addressing members of the Chautauqua County Legislature.“Obviously, we face significant challenges this year. We were asked to cut some of our budget for 2020. We made an effort to do that,” Swanson said. “I think, if you take a look at where we are on the year, we’ve done as good as we had hoped we could do considering the circumstances.”“You all know that, year after year, I come here seeking more personnel,” he added. “I think it was abundantly clear this year that it just wasn’t a possibility. While I’d love new attorneys and an increase in staff to handle the caseload we have, I understand the reality of the circumstances that we face today.” Swanson says that his office has no open positions. He explains that he wanted to provide clarity as he’s asking for an increase of $121,000 in his personnel services, which he attributes to an increase in various raises and a “no turnover” savings.Additionally, Swanson says that his office is seeking more funds to cover the cost of insurance for his office. Overall, the department head says $164,000 of the $197,000 budget increase he’s requesting is due to costs “outside of” his control.Swanson says $9,000 would be allocated towards IT costs, allowing his attorneys to utilize various technology to help with their caseload.Chautauqua County Legislator Terry Niebel asked Swanson if there’d be any effect on the 2021 budget because of Judge David Foley’s recent dismissal of a murder indictment against Jamestown man Julio Montanez.Swanson says the 2021 DA’s budget won’t be affected at all as the case was likely going to start next year anyways. He says that the 2020 budget would only be affected if officers needed to be called in to testify, which he says that’s only if his office chooses to re-present to the grand jury.If his office chooses to appeal the ruling, Swanson states the costs would be the time an attorney spent on the appeal.
