Insights on the Global Real Estate Market with Mark Rose
This month, James is pleased to welcome back to the Nelson Report Mark Rose, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Avison Young, who just returned from several months in our London office and visiting other Avison Young locations throughout Europe. Last February, Avison Young acquired U.K.-based GVA, which was one of the U.K.’s leading and most diverse real estate advisory businesses. The transaction added Avison Young offices in the U.K, Austria; Bulgaria; China; France; Greece; Italy; Norway; Poland; Republic of Ireland; Romania; Russia; Spain; and United Arab Emirates (Dubai). Avison Young now has approximately 5,000 real estate professionals in 120 offices in 20 countries. James starts by asking Mark to share his insights about the uncertainties in the market—Brexit in London and political headwinds in New York City and other parts of the country.
