"We're committed to a culture that values teamwork, integrity and trust and that service excellence will continue to set the precedent for real estate services around the world."

Jones Lang LaSalle also ranked No. 1 in six out of 10 key factors that respondents indicated were most important to drive clients' bottom lines or demonstrate strong client orientation, including:

  • Is a financially strong company
  • Monitors performance with metrics
