CBRE Residential forms specialist Boutique team

CBRE Residential continues to diversify its growing business, forming a specialist Boutique development team.

The team will be headed by CBRE Executive Director Lisa Hollands, and will provide bespoke development consultancy and sales advice to boutique residential developments across central London.

The specialist team has been formed in response to growing client demand for a dedicated consultancy service focused on the differentiated boutique product and its buyer demographic.

CBRE Residential has seen remarkable growth in recent years and is now firmly established as one of London’s leading residential advisers, focusing on providing innovative development consultancy, as well as sales and marketing advice and lettings and management services across Greater London. Since its formation six years ago, the business now employs 128 residential experts.

The Boutique team has a pipeline of over 40 new development projects to transact over the next two years, with a growing client base. Current clients include:  Aviva, Legal & General, Shaftesbury plc, Derwent London, Lodha, Dukelease, Capco and Amazon.

Lisa Hollands, Executive Director at CBRE UK, comments “We identified an opportunity to further diversify the growing CBRE Residential business, by giving clients tailored advice on their boutique projects with the aim of optimizing sales. Boutique schemes tend to be in more niche London locations and often involve a range of developer types, such as funds, propcos and SME’s. 

“There is increasing demand in this sector across all buyer demographics, including owner occupiers, downsizers and investors focusing on long term capital growth. By establishing a team with a real focus on this area of our business we will improve the service we offer clients and further increase our residential market coverage.”

Mark Collins, Chairman of Residential at CBRE UK, comments “CBRE’s residential experts have a diverse skillset across a range of markets and this, combined with our established London and global sales platform, allows us to provide a unique and highly bespoke sales, lettings and consultancy service to our clients.”
