Designed to Deliver Differently

Real estate decisions in today’s business environment are complex, expensive and often cut across geographies and operations. Driven by rapid and constant change, buyers and lenders are more cautious. Companies need a partner who understands their goals and challenges and offers long-term strategies for increasing flexibility and to sustain performance through market fluctuation and uncertainty.

Avison Young is designed to meet today’s challenges, see the big picture, collaborate, build long-term relationships and deliver real estate services differently for the best possible results.

Our Values

To build the leading global real estate solutions company by aligning the interests and needs of clients with the superior skill sets and intellectual capital of our professionals, using a unique and transformational delivery structure.


We’re not bound to outside investors and 90-day performance metrics. We understand real estate is cyclical. We follow the natural rhythm of our clients’ business and focus on long-term goals and performance.


The firm’s equity is in the hands of a broad base of principals, a unique ownership structure that incentivizes internal collaboration and aligns our solutions, first and foremost, with client objectives.


We’re in business to build relationships. That’s why we eliminated service-line silos. Our capabilities and services are structured organically, around client relationships, not business units. Our project teams often include thought leaders who are not directly involved in revenue production in order to eliminate internal conflicts to reaching the best solution.


We remain focused on what we do best. So when it’s needed, we partner with other best-in-class providers to offer the best solutions and results for our clients.

Based on these principles, we are designed to deliver differently: more intelligent real estate solutions, a better client experience built on trust, and stronger performance and results for the long term.
