    Abstract

    The focus of this research is in the area of the commercial real estate services industry. It studies the importance of offering a ‘global’, multi-disciplinary service, and within that the role and influence of clients. The vast world of real estate places such importance on the service providers within the industry. The commercial real estate services industry is united in its aim – to advise, consult, guide and serve their clients in maximising efficiency, value and profitability from their real estate assets.

    Commercial real estate service firms drive the success of their clients and to this end, such a study of them is significant.

    The research approach adopted in this dissertation involves qualitative primary research methods, interviewing leaders within the commercial real estate service sectors and analysing their perspectives and views. It seeks to ascertain the extent to which offering a ‘global’, multi-disciplinary service is important to success within the industry.

    The findings from this study confirm the importance of offering a multi-disciplinary service more so than a ‘global’ service, but highlight that the importance of any service is reliant upon the client. The clients’ requirements and needs are the central driver to the actions and decisions of every commercial real estate service firm. They dictate the breadth, level and location of service and it becomes the responsibility of the commercial real estate service firm to align themselves to provide any solution.
