Avison Young is a full-service, commercial real estate services firm with a unique model, culture and approach. We are a private company, designed to put our client relationships and their success at the center of everything we do.
Client relationships are typically led by one of the company Principals, who are also the owners of the company. Because they are owners, our Principals have a deeper commitment to driving client and company performance. There are no hand-offs to junior brokers or corporate departments. Our customers benefit from the trust, quality and consistency that result only from ongoing senior-level expertise, involvement and accountability.
We’ve eliminated service-line silos. We focus on talent, not business unit P&Ls. No internal conflicts. We bring the right expertise to solve client challenges, every time. This translates into greater collaboration, alignment, less bureaucracy and, ultimately, more intelligent real estate solutions that lead to better results.
Because we are private, we answer to clients, not public shareholders. We prioritize long-term partnerships and performance over transaction volumes and quarterly performance metrics.
The success of our approach has led to our tremendous growth. Avison Young is the world’s fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Avison Young was founded in 1978. The company comprises 2,600 real estate professionals in 82 offices, providing value-added, client-centric investment sales, leasing, advisory, management, financing and mortgage placement services to owners and occupiers of office, retail, industrial, multi-family and hospitality properties.
Avison Young is the world’s fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm. In the past several years, Avison Young has grown exponentially from a small Canadian company to an international firm with professionals and clients around the globe. Why? Because we’re different.
