Stunning results from a very different approach

Avison Young is the world’s fastest-growing real estate service firm delivering intelligent property solutions to user/occupiers and owner/investors. Our South African team mainly focuses on home territory, but it also acts as the intelligent hub for occupiers seeking to take advantage of business opportunities and expanding economies in Sub-Saharan Africa.

No silos just solutions

Avison Young’s model is deliberately disruptive. We’ve turned our back on traditional industry silos and pyramid structures. This stimulates a client-first, advice-led approach and a much broader and consistent team effort.

Our unique ownership structure creates the incentive for internal collaboration and a culture that delivers a better client experience, better results and exceptional career opportunities.

Integrated approach drives sustained client value

Whilst transactions are important, they are the end of a process designed to deliver sustained value for our clients. Our model allows us to focus on the right advice irrespective of the size of the transaction fee.

Success breeds success. Our structure and our culture means that every day not only do we attract and retain new clients but also innovative thinkers and professionals who aspire to raise the bar for the whole real estate services industry.
