Kingsley Associates has partnered with Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) International to produce the online Experience Exchange Report (EER). The EER is commercial real estate’s most trusted and comprehensive income and expense benchmarking resource. The report covers more than 5,700 buildings and 1 billion square feet of space across the U.S. and Canada. In 2015, Kingsley Associates and BOMA launched the first-ever industrial EER.

In addition to the EER, Kingsley Associates has partnered with BOMA to produce What Office Tenants Want, a research and analysis project for global tenant preferences. This report outlines tenant preferences and attitudes in categories ranging from building amenities and services to sustainability and maintenance practices, providing commercial real estate professionals with the in-depth trend analysis they need to attract and retain tenants.

Kingsley Associates often speaks at BOMA-sponsored events and regularly conducts educational sessions and webinars in conjunction with BOMA International.


Kingsley Associates has been the chosen partner for the National Multifamily Housing Council’s (NMHC) NMHC 50 survey since 2009. This study is the authoritative ranking of the 50 largest apartment owners and managers. In 2015, the study has expanded to include the top 25 largest developers and general contractors. The annual NMHC 50 survey results are released in the April issue of Multifamily Executive.

NMHC and Kingsley partnered to survey over 500,000 residents across the US regarding their apartment rental experience. As a follow up to the inaugural survey initiated in 2013, the 2015 NMHC / Kingsley Renter Preferences Study shines light upon nearly 120,000 apartment residents’ perspectives on preferred neighborhood destinations, methods used in the apartment search process, and interest in and pricing expectations for 69 apartment features and community amenities.

In 2014, NMHC and Kingsley Associates collaborated to produce the Apartment Resident Package Delivery Survey. With more than 2,500 responses, the results offer insight into how apartment operators are addressing the increasing real estate, technology, and personnel expenses (personnel costs or overhead costs or time) associated with efficiently delivering an ever-expanding volume of packages to residents.


Kingsley Associates partners with Institutional Real Estate, Inc. (IREI), to conduct the annual Plan Sponsor Survey, which examines the outlook of the largest domestic tax-exempt investors in real estate. The survey focuses on investors’ real estate capital flows, risk and return expectations, planned search activity for investment managers, and investment enthusiasm.

The Plan Sponsor Survey is considered the leading source for institutional real estate investment trends. Kingsley Associates presents the key findings in a complete report of the results as well as at IREI conferences. The Plan Sponsor Survey is regularly highlighted in The Wall Street Journal and various real estate trade media.
