Real Estate

Global talent for a global market

As an asset class, Real Estate requires a diverse array of talent – from finance specialists to operational professionals. Our Real Estate team’s unique mix of Real Estate industry and executive search backgrounds enables us to source, assess and deliver exceptional talent across functions and sectors. While Real Estate remains a local business, real estate companies increasingly span the globe and collaborate with partners from around the world.

Our broad footprint allows us to serve our clients where they are – the Americas, Europe, Middle East, and Asia – providing both local market knowledge and a global perspective on top talent.  We are proud of the fact that, since the Real Estate Practice’s inception, approximately fifty percent of our placements represent candidates of diversity.

Experienced and Responsive

Our dedicated consultants average over 10 years’ Real Estate experience spanning executive search and industry roles in development, asset management, capital-raising and investor relations. The team distinguishes itself with high-touch client relations and its thoughtful, candidate-friendly approach to search. Through rigorous processes and strong networks, we deliver well-vetted talent with efficiency to our clients, which include investment firms such as real estate private equity groups, debt funds, REITs, sovereign wealth funds, family offices, owner/operators and beyond, as well as third-party advisors, developers, and investment banks.
