CBRE topped Real Capital Analytics’ newly–released annual ranking of global investment sales brokerages. Collectively, these brokerage firms were associated with transaction volume of $654 billion in 2019, representing 64% of all eligible transactions involving income-producing real estate globally.
Following CBRE in the global top 10 for 2019 were JLL, Eastdil Secured, Cushman & Wakefield, Knight Frank/NKF, Colliers International, BNP Paribas, Savills, HFF and Marcus & Millichap. HFF was acquired by JLL in midyear 2019.
The top 25 brokerage firms accounted for a 93% share of transaction activity, RCA says. Of these, only six are truly global, operating across the Americas, Asia Pacific and EMEA. Sixteen firms operate predominantly in one zone only.
The top 10 brokers in RCA’s ranking are active across most major property types. Of the rest of the top 25, seven brokerage firms are primarily focused on just one sector.
