Formed in 1982, the GBRAR CID is the oldest local commercial real estate organization in Louisiana. The CID exists to unite those involved in the commercial and investment real estate business; to foster knowledge, education, integrity, professionalism and quality workmanship in this field of real estate; and to encourage the exchange of specialized information among the members.

The CID provides a variety of educational, professional development and networking opportunities.  The CID frequenly brings in top speakers from the area and across the nation to address our membership on topics of interest to the commercial real estate community. The CID is governed by a Board of Directors that meets monthly.

The CID originated the TRENDS in Baton Rouge Real Estate” seminar attended by nearly 1000 participants each year making it largest real estate seminar in Louisiana. The TRENDS Seminar is overseen by the TRENDS Steering Committee.

In 2001 the GBRAR CID established LACDB (Louisiana Commercial Database) which is an Internet browser-based commercial data sharing system. It has a private side available only to LACDB Participants and the public side that show information on properties listed by the LACDB members. This system has developed into a statewide commercial property database that is now affiliated with the national Commercial Exchange network.  Becoming a member of CID puts you in touch with the heartbeat of commercial and investment real estate activity not only in the Baton Rouge metro area, but across the state and the nation.
