They demonstrated expertise on the complex corporate side, as well as translating that into an effi cient global marketing. We were impressed with the end result, selling at a level that refl ected the long-term opportunities offered by this special holding, and we felt that JLL worked tirelessly in our best interests throughout the transaction.”

Their expertise and professionalism helped us to secure the deal and to proceed with the transaction smoothly. It was a pleasure to work with JLL on this transaction and we look forward to working with JLL again on future transactions."

      Maysoun Ibrahim, Crimson Properties Ltd

    • "Having completed the letting programme for the building and given its global placement capabilities, JLL was jointly instructed to market the property in order to provide full coverage for the sale. Providing clear incisive advice at key points of the transaction, the JLL team significantly contributed to the successful outcome of the sale. I was very pleased with their focus and delivery for Tishman Speyer on this mandate."

      Dan Nicholson, Tishman Speyer
      Nexus, 25 Farringdon Street, EC4

    • "The team at JLL delivered an excellent performance on the sale of 99 Kensington High Street. They displayed a highly diligent and detailed approach to a complex transaction, working with the three owning shareholders. JLL undertook a truly global marketing campaign, generating extensive interest in the property. They delivered both in respect of market intelligence and also execution of the sale, with the property being sold for over 10% in excess of the quoting terms, generating a significant premium over our expectations."

      Marc Tack, Genting UK

    • "JLL brought this opportunity to our attention at a very early stage enabling us to be well prepared when it formally came to market.

      Mike Probert, Moorevale
      The Harlequin Building, 65 Southwark Street, SE1

    • "Since advising on the acquisition in 2009, JLL has provided valuable ongoing advice as to asset management and realisable value. Working closely with their International Capital Group, the team secured a sale of the asset to a new overseas entrant at a price ahead of our expectations."

      1 Fleet Place, EC4

    • "We chose to appoint JLL on the sale of Ryder Court because of their long-term involvement with the asset and their leading position in the West End investment market. They undertook a detailed pre-sale due diligence process on what was a fairly complex leasehold asset, and their eye for detail ensured a smooth and successful sale process. Their tactical advice throughout the transaction contributed significantly to a highly successful outcome, achieving 17% over the quoting terms."

      Andrew Jeanes, LaSalle Investment Management
      Ryder Court, 12-16 Ryder Street & 13-17 Bury Street, SW1

Having received information on the availability of Bankside and taken the initiative to ensure the Fund was in a position to make a well-informed early offer for the asset, JLL was able to secure this transaction for us. JLL delivered their consistent and market-leading skills to secure one of the major transactions in the London market for 2013."

JLL's leasing, investment and hotels teams worked well together and were central to achieving our goals."
