Costar Group ReviewsNever join Costar Group, its fake and not a real estate firm
I was looking out for a job change and was checking for options. It was then I came across the opening for marketing department at Coaster Group. I was from the marketing domain and a real estate company would not have made any difference. So, without delay, I called them.
They told me that they will be conducting a telephonic interview 2 days later. I was waiting for the call and was really looking forward to it. I did get a call and the interview went awesome. The lady on the phone asked me to wait for 2 weeks. But, they never called. I dialed their number to check about the update. The receptionist informed me that they misplaced my resume.
She apologised and told me that I will have to go through the same round with another employee as the one interviewed me had left the company. So, the call came after 2 days and I was again given 2 weeks’ time.
The same story again. Didn’t get any update. I visited that company without any information. I was too furious and because of their delays, my other decision related to jobs were pending. It was very unprofessional.
The lady at the reception told me that she would be arranging an interview at the office right away and informed that the lady who took my interview for the second time had also left. I was confused and did not understand why the attrition rate was too high when internet shared a completely different story.
I had checked earlier on internet and the employee’s satisfaction rate was about 100%. It was surprising. However, I gave the interview. I was lucky to find someone known at the office. I asked him with the information to clear my doubt. His update really pissed me off.
I told him the entire interview history. He did not seem surprised at all. As if it was normal there for people to leave company like that. He informed me that Costar Group was a liar and they never give what they promise. He told me about the work culture and various other things that disturbed me a lot.
Costar Group pays less and their bonus and other incentive system sucked. He was also planning to leave and was trying somewhere else. He said that they did not have any HR and the company’s employees took turns for interviewing people.
He also suggested that they are con artists under the name of real estate business. They actually are no more than telemarketers. That was the reason why people leave early.
I was really angry after listening to all that and this report will help many others who are planning to quit their old company for this Costar Group. Thank god, I was saved.

NO HUMAN INTREST
TRIED TO CONTACT A HUMAN TO TELL THEM THAT THEIR COMPANY WAS BEING USED BY A SCAMMER, WHO ISSUED A CHECK FOR $4800.00 THAT TURNED OUT TO BE BAD. WAS RE-DIRECTED TO THEIR “FRAUD” LINE AND ASKED TO LEAVE A MESSAGE. HERE IS MY MESSAGE “IT’S EASY FOR SCAMMERS TO USE COMPANIES THAT DON’T HAVE HUMAN CONTACT, BECAUSE IT SEEMS THAT THEY ARE “TO BUSY” TO DEAL WITH THIS. I JUST HOPE THEIR “REAL” CLIENTS HAVE BETTER LUCK DEALING WITH THIS COMPANY. PLEASE HOLD, AND THE NEXT REPRESENTATIVE WILL PASS YOU OFF TO SOME OTHER MACHINE. HAVE A NICE DAY!
I am looking for and giving my support to anyone who is their competition. Not to mention their rates are VERY high. Look elsewhere, unless you like calls from odd numbers every week and paying very high fees. I think there will be a free site soon, like zillow, for commercial real estate.
terrible. I used to like loopnet
terrible. I used to like loopnet. I could go and confirm online that my listings are up to date. Once costar bought them they do these harassing phone calls every week want to gather information from you. And when you block them they call from a different number and different area code.
When you ask them to stop they say they can’t and keep calling. When you complain to one of their head analysts via email after 12 months of asking to stop getting calls, instead of emailing back he calls you and leaves a voicemail.
Unreliable data with many errors, and no recourse.
Unreliable data with many errors, and no recourse. Even their license says that they don’t guarantee the accuracy of their data. What a joke. And when you cancel in accordance with the license agreement, they continue to bill you and threaten collections when you refuse to pay.
costar group is a scam and doing business by leveraging on loopnet name
Their sales team is so pathetic, in starting they told me costar group has every listing coming all way from Loopnet and they claim they are the new owner of the company but thats BIG LIE. they have been caught many time and I was not able to find out my listing on google which has been placed on costar website, they don’t have organic marketing as loopnet is having.
Loopnet does much better organic search engine service than costar, even when I had free account with them.
So don’t fall for these guys, and I suggest you no tot pay for their subscription services
