CBRE has created a specific International valuation team, based in London, dedicated to centrally coordinating the activity of our worldwide personnel on cross border valuation work. The team was established 10 years ago to ensure we maximise the potential of our network, and is now ideally placed to provide a managed valuation service to clients with a wide variety of property assets in fast moving and highly differentiated national markets.
The International Valuation team focuses on a wide range of instructions, and especially on the management of large and complex cross border assignments for our clients. We act as the principal point of contact with each client to ensure all work is undertaken in accordance with international standards of both reporting and methodology. This ensures consistent and timely service delivery. The team numbers 20 senior personnel who solely act in this capacity of managing client instructions and accordingly have built up an unrivalled track record of assignments dealing with our network of offices on a daily basis. The depth of the team focussed on this activity is unique to CBRE.
Through our senior, highly experienced client and valuation teams we have wide ranging experience across all property sectors. We maintain regular dialogue with our Research, Leasing and Capital Markets teams, both at a local and cross border level ensuring we are aware of market activity.
We use a centrally managed, locally valued service structure which has been developed over a number of years to ensure consistent levels of reporting across all countries and regions. Within EMEA we have a Strategic Executive Group (SEG) and Best Practice Group (BPG) which meets regularly to ensure common goals and standards which are then integrated into our operating procedures. We also use a common software platform with our local offices which facilitates the valuation process.
