Large volume of estimates carried out for banks, +- 150 cases in 2017
Many cases in terms of M&A (mainly in industry)
Many family portfolios (real estate companies) on strategic decision points: Succession planning, generation switches from parents to children: hold or sell in terms of follow-up, management, priorities children, split private and operating assets, etc.
Public sector entities (cities and municipalities, provinces, governments) that consolidate their real estate, appreciate and valorise budgets
Regular customers in various segments who appreciate our discretion, market knowledge (expertise) and objectivity.
Globalisation and increasing groups (for example, garage networks in the automotive sector) result in the continuation of the volume M&A cases; via Gerald Eve network, HCS can be responsible for cross-border M&As at European level: for both commercial and estimates/consulting.
Continuation work for different banks (low interest rates continue to drive bank estimates because financing is cheap, allowing businesses to use their cash for growth in their core business)
Be a valued partner so that “whenever real estate matters” we can support our customers (large and small) with advice and support
