Executive Summary

The UK market for real estate advisory services faces new challenges as client focus turns to energy and sustainability. Two key factors are motivating advisors to act: the obsolescence risk affecting the future value of building brought about by new legislation and a changing market environment. The onus is on real estate advisors to help their clients create and execute value-adding strategies throughout the real estate value chain. This Green Quadrant report provides a detailed and fact-based comparison of 17 of the leading real estate advisors operating in the UK. The analysis is based on interviews with 15 buy side firms, advisors’ responses to a 44 point questionnaire, desktop research and detailed supplier interviews. This objective, fact-based analysis finds that seven advisors currently lead the market: CB Richard Ellis, Cushman & Wakefield, Deloitte, DTZ, GVA, Jones Lang LaSalle and King Sturge. These advisors offer the broadest set of sustainability capabilities integrated within their traditional service lines, offering advice on both a property and strategic level and boast a track record in this growing market.
