CB Richard Ellis (CBRE) has been ranked the No1 commercial property management firm in the world, according to National Real Estate Investor, the leading magazine for professional real estate investors. CBRE, which has its largest regional office in Birmingham, has retained the top position in the publication’s annual ranking for seven consecutive years.

CB Richard Ellis manages more than 2.5 billion sq. ft. of commercial property globally. This portfolio is more than 850 million sq. ft. larger than the No2 firm, which manages 1.65 billion sq. ft.  The firm’s team in Birmingham, one of the largest in the city, has more than 1,500 tenancies under its management. Clients include Threadneedle, Nurton, ING, CBRE Investors, St Martins Property Company, Carlyle Group, Calthorpe Estates and Opus Land. The team manages most of the city centre’s ‘trophy’ office buildings, including Colmore Plaza, 2 Colmore Square, Calthorpe House and Victoria Square House.

“It is clear that the Industry trend toward consolidation of service providers is benefiting firms such as ours, which relentlessly pursue continuous improvement of our service delivery,” said Neil Anderson, head of the property and asset management team at CBRE in Birmingham.  “We are extremely proud of our position as the ‘go-to’ firm for property owners and occupiers around the Midlands, across the country and in markets around the world.”
