CR's Best

CRBestLogoWelcome to the results of our 13th annual Commercial Record readers’ poll, in which our readers have cast their votes for the best providers of services and goods in the banking and real estate industries. The Commercial Record has since early September conducted an online survey of readers. We promoted this project via ads in emails to thousands of readers and customers of The Commercial Record, and through our website, www.commercialrecord.com. Readers responded vigorously to the opportunity to voice their choice. Here, then, are their choices for The Best – the companies that won the loyalty and support of the Nutmeg State’s financial and real estate communities.
