Every now and again, you can expect from us a self-promotion interlude, and today is one of those days. The following is an excerpt from our corporate press release announcing Colliers’ ranking in the Lipsey annual real estate brand survey. The Government Solutions group is proud to be a member of Colliers’ dynamic global platform.
The Lipsey Co., the industry’s leading training consultancy, ranked Colliers among the top global brands in a new survey of more than 50,000 industry professionals. The 11th annual Lipsey survey, which ranked Colliers second overall for the third year in a row, was conducted among commercial property owners, investors, lenders, brokers and property managers around the globe.
“We’re very proud of our global ranking because it affirms our international leadership,” said Doug Frye, global president and CEO of Colliers International. “Ours is a tremendous global brand that embraces sustainability, thought leadership, and an excellent international management team. But, it all starts at the local level with quality people and exceptional client service.”
Frye added that Colliers International outpaced all of its key competitors in revenue growth in 2011 — up 37% globally — which was nearly double its competitors’ growth rate, he said.
The Lipsey Co. survey uses a combination of voting and focus groups to calculate the relative strength of commercial real estate brands among all categories in the industry, including brokerage services, real estate investment trusts (REITs), developers, property managers and data providers.
