Knowledge is a critical part of the service we offer our clients; our knowledge comes from experience and research. Our research team works in partnership with our advisory professionals to provide clients with timely, accurate and relevant market intelligence to support their business decisions.

We provide multi-level support across all real estate sectors ranging from data collection to comprehensive market analysis. Our extensive in-house database provides detailed information on a range of real estate assets including supply, demand, absorption rates and transactions. Using this data, we produce insight into market performances, underlying conditions and directional trends across the MENA region.

Our research team publishes forward-looking thought leadership on major industry directions. Based on proprietary data we collect from our regional offices, we combine this with insights from our market professionals and our global research teams. Beyond our industry reports, we also provide tailored research analysis for our clients. From highest and best use studies, market research to feasibility studies, our research provides you with the insight you need to make informed decisions for your business. Numbers provide vital information, but data can be misleading without sufficient context with which to interpret it. We help our clients understand trends to take advantage of the evolving nature of real estate.
