This book examines the international growth and diversification of real estate advisory services in the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany and Japan since 1960. The book explains how successful firms develop competitive advantages in the global marketplace.

An evaluation of forty prominent firms (ten from each country) provides a comparative reference for a detailed analysis of the growth and internationalization of four major real estate advisory service firms (one from each country). The firms have responded in many ways to changes in international real estate investment, and their fortunes have varied accordingly.

The analysis provides factual evidence demonstrating growth strategies that enable a firm to become a successful real estate advisory service in today's global economy.


'This is a well-structured book, offering a clear exposition of the results of extensive and complex research. It represents a significant contribution to our knowledge of strategy and globalisation' - Judy Slinn, Business History

About the Series

Routledge Studies in International Business and the World Economy

As ever-increasing proportion of the world's business takes place across national borders, the need to understand the motive forces behind international business becomes greater. Transnationals are now, in many cases, as important as national governments in shaping trade flows and economic trends. As this series demonstrates, international business is not just the preserve of the largest companies, but impacts on all aspects of business and economic activity. This series is essential reading for policy makers as well as researchers in international business and applied international economics.
