Expertise that drives results
There’s nothing alternative about a sector that continuously outperforms its peers.

With more than 300 specialists with unrivalled property, operational and financial expertise, this powerful proposition has been built on our belief that people, place and the customer experience are key commodities in determining an operational business’s worth.
We work with some of the most established and emerging names in operational real estate, who tell us that they value our eye for opportunity and the capabilities we have in place to realise this. Whether you are an operator, an owner, an investor or a lender, we can give you the edge you need to succeed in this thriving market.
This is a shift that it here to stay, with traditional lease lengths falling and core markets showing uncertain returns, operational markets are where managers and investors can mark out territory and use expertise to drive performance.

Smooth Operators: Our People
CBRE knows real estate better than anyone else, but it is our expertise beyond this that truly sets us apart from the pack. Our team spans a variety of backgrounds, from banking and professional services to the sectors our clients operate in. And it is this first-hand experience that gives us a true appreciation of the value of a business beyond its four walls.
In a society where the customer experience has the power to make or break a brand, service is everything. We share our clients’ passion for seamless delivery of service, recruiting from the leading operators, hotel and business schools and then training our people to view assets from the end-user perspective.
Our culture stands at the heart of our success. Specialised and connected, we take a ground-up approach combined with the industry’s most advanced financial knowhow. We devise the tools our clients need to capitalise on this and optimise their returns.
As with many of our clients’ businesses, the people within CBRE Operational Real Estate are our greatest asset. Known changemakers, we attract people and teams with a genuine passion for the assets on which they advise. We combine their skills with extensive data and resources that only the world’s leading real estate advisor can provide.
