Central London

The gold standard in London property

London is a property market unlike any other in the world. Nowhere else offers such a diverse range of properties, challenges, opportunities or dynamic activity. Whether you are entering the market for the first time or have a well-established presence, and whether you are looking to invest, buy, sell, let or rent, you will always benefit from working with CBRE.

Dedicated London specialists

Clients work with our dedicated Central London team, comprising experts from our specialised sector and service groups. We work collaboratively with all our clients to map property strategies across Central London. Clients cite our 'can-do' attitude as a major driver in finding solutions to their challenges and our enthusiasm as a reason for working with us time and again.

Results-driven London team

CBRE was the top agent for both leasing and acquisition work in the Central London Office market in 2012, with our team advising on three of the four largest leasing deals. In total, we acted for either the landlord or the tenant in more than 36% of all the space let in Central London throughout last year.

In 2012 we retained our market leading position, advising on more acquisitions and disposals of Central London development opportunities than any other advisor. This amounted to a 33% share of the market by value. In particular, we advised on 3 of the 10 largest land transactions in 2012.

We also had a market leading position in both the selling and purchasing of Central London office investment properties in 2012. Combined, we were represented in terms of the investment value in 49% of all the deals in the year, from either a vendor or purchaser perspective. We also acted in £6.8 bn of office investment deals, acting on the two largest office investment deals and in ten of the sixteen deals over £200m.

No other property company in the world can demonstrate such extensive activity in the Central London market. Clients have access to our genuine understanding of this market, and our unique insight – combined with local and international connections – means that we find hidden opportunities that deliver on our clients’ strategic commercial aims.
