Strong relationships with leading real estate organizations

Industry Partnerships

Kingsley’s affiliations with real estate trade organizations help us keep our finger on the pulse of the industry. Through our strategic relationships with BOMA, NMHC, IREI, and GRESB we provide valuable research and benchmarking tools to their members and sponsors. We are also regularly featured on the Multi-Housing News (MHN), Multifamily Executive (MFE), and Commercial Property Executive (CPE) websites.

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

Top 50
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. Since 2015, the study has expanded to include the top 25 largest developers, general contractors, and syndicators. The annual NMHC 50 survey results are released in the April issue of Multifamily Executive.

Renter Preferences Report
NMHC and Kingsley partner to survey over 1,000,000 residents across the US regarding their apartment rental experience. As a follow up to the surveys initiated in 2013 and 2015, the 2017 NMHC / Kingsley Renter Preferences Report shines light upon 272,743 apartment residents’ perspectives on what apartment features and community amenities are most desirable, how they found their apartments, and their top considerations for moving.

The survey included new questions on emerging hot topics and carry-over questions from 2015 for trend analysis. With over twice as many respondents as 2015 and nearly twice as many communities and cities, the report is an indispensable database for apartment owners, managers and developers, as well as architects, suppliers, financial institutions and many others.

Package Delivery Survey
NMHC and Kingsley collaborate to produce the Apartment Resident Package Delivery Survey. As a follow up to the survey conducted in 2014, the 2018 Package Delivery Survey received more than 2,000 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 in a new e-commerce reality.



Kingsley has partnered with Institutional Real Estate, Inc. (IREI) since 1996 to conduct the annual Institutional Investor Survey. The survey examines the outlook of the largest domestic tax-exempt investors in real estate and focuses on investors’ real estate capital flows, risk and return expectations, planned search activity for investment managers, and investment enthusiasm.

The Institutional Investor Survey is considered the leading source for institutional real estate investment trends. Kingsley presents the key findings from the study annually at IREI conferences, and the survey results are regularly highlighted in The Wall Street Journal and various real estate trade media.


Kingsley is pleased be a GRESB Real Estate Partner. GRESB is an investor-driven organization committed to assessing the ESG performance of real assets globally. All Partners are committed to helping GRESB participants advance their ESG performance and contribute to GRESB’s mission of assessing and empowering sustainability practices in the real estate sector.

Each year, GRESB captures information around the sustainability performance of property companies, fund managers, and developers.  In 2017, 850 property companies and funds, jointly representing more than USD 3.7 trillion in assets under management, participate in the GRESB Real Estate Assessment.

GRESB data and analytical tools are used by 66 institutional and retail investors, including pension funds and insurance companies, collectively representing over USD 17 trillion in institutional capital, to engage with investment managers to enhance and protect shareholder value.
