Listing Attributes within a Buffer

We are a survey and engineering firm.

We have a .csv file that contains a list of all our previous job locations listed out by lat and long.  We recently acquired a .csv file from a real estate board that lists the properties for sale in our region by lat and long.

Our goal here is to create a half mile buffer around each property being listed to see if we have any jobs within that radius. We would ultimately like to have ArcMap create a list or a table that shows each individual property listed along with any of our jobs that land within the half mile circle.Real Estate Example.jpg


Buffer shape #1:  123 North Pole Street

                              Listed by REMAX

Previous Jobs within a 1/2 mile radius:  2015-155, 2016-554

I have attempted the spacial join function but it doesn't seem to add data from our previous jobs into the output data.

you can join the points to the polygon with the many to one, or just switch the order of the join by joining the buffer to the points.  But strangely, your buffers don't appear to be buffers since they aren't centered on the points, so I guess those are centered on something else.
