Colliers International's Development & Consulting Services Group provides real estate consulting services to a variety of corporate and institutional clients.

For our corporate clients, these services can help control costs, increase efficiency, maintain flexibility, attract and retain a talented workforce, support new business strategies, and respond to changing real estate needs resulting from expansions, contractions, mergers and acquisitions, and changes in the business climate.

For our institutional clients, these services can help in the disposition of underutilized assets, monetization of existing assets and aquisition and development of new campus facilities. Our private sector and for-profit expertise allow us to help non-profit institutions become as financially competitive as possible by maximizing the value of their real estate assets and ensuring the most cost-effective operations.

Over time we have developed a process that is the basis for our real estate consulting assignments. The greatest strength of our process is the order it brings to collecting, analyzing and organizing large amounts of information to develop and evaluate options. Since each project is different, the process is customized to meet the specific needs and circumstances of each client. When required, we partner with planners, architects, engineers and cost estimators to ensure that our analysis and recommendations are realistic and economically feasible.
