BROKER VALUE IN ACTION

How do you create value for your clients?
Every client has a unique set of fingerprints. My team's first and foremost priority is uncovering our clients' needs and objectives that will ultimately frame their real estate strategy. This preliminary discovery step is of utmost value to our clients, as it allows for full solution customization and tailoring.

What innovative trends across Workplace and PropTech are you leveraging in your market or sector to help keep your clients competitive?
All occupiers are currently trying to understand the logistics behind the hybrid workplace model and its effects on employees, company culture, and real estate. One of the most important questions we are helping our clients answer is: "How do we ensure right people are in the office at the right time?" Delivering a platform of services that assist with this answer is a game changer.

If you had a lens into the future, where do you think Occupiers will be most focused in 2025?
We foresee the rebirth of office culture taking place by 2024/2025, albeit in a different capacity than pre-pandemic standards. The office of the future will become an equivalent of a "social club", which employees will use predominantly for collaboration, mentorship, and socialization. By 2025, we envision even late adopters of return-to-office to be drawn back for the fear of "missing out", but only in a flexible and hybrid form.
