Why Colliers?
Experts & Retail Intelligence

Whether it’s developing space for retail or F&B use, we know what occupiers need operationally and we are usually brought in at a pre planning stage to advise on feasibility of such matters as deliveries and servicing management, utilities and M&E specification, optimal site and unit configuration, planning and licensing (F&B). 

We are an experienced and niche practice providing thoughtful and reliable advice as part of the team of consultants including architects, planners, quantity surveyors and project managers that helps guide the development process seamlessly from conception through to PC, opening and beyond.

Prior to leasing the end product, we work harder than anyone in our sector to proactively and systematically seek out potential occupier’s form around the world. Our network of relationships with key retailers, restaurateurs and investors sets us apart. 

Occupiers looking to sell single or multiple units or parts of their business know to trust the high standard of personalised and discreet advice on offer at Colliers.

We are experienced advisors who know their markets and the factors that really affect the value. We will tell you what to expect, what is required and the pitfalls to avoid. We will give you an honest and reliable summary of your options with no obligation. We will recommend a strategy that is individual to the business and its needs. 

We have the industry leading applicant system which means we continually seek out and engage with expanding businesses so we know who is going to be interested in an opportunity and we can go direct to owners thereby protecting confidentiality and wasting no time.


Our Retail Strategy team specialise in delivering rich, data-driven insights to help our clients across EMEA regions to reach their retail potential. Key landlord services include 
Retailer Profitability Modelling Our in-house profitability model is underpinned by a deep understanding of retailer trading models.
