Property and real estate consultancy firm Cushman & Wakefield has significantly expanded its Valuation & Advisory team. Martin Belik, who has headed up Valuation & Advisory in Germany since 2007, currently manages a team of 40 advisors in Frankfurt and Berlin. And, according to Belik, this number is set to rise further; “As a result of the merger with DTZ and our restructuring, we have evolved into a team with excellent networks both within Europe and the world and have already successfully leveraged synergies. Not only are we now stronger, we are also one of the biggest partners in the market.”
Belik’s team specialises in the retail, office, industrial, logistics, residential and hospitality sectors as well as healthcare real estate, valuing single properties as well as extensive portfolios. In the future, Belik expects to place a greater focus on helping domestic German funds become international investments. This is optimally supported by the global platform comprising approximately 2,000 local valuation professionals who have access to the experienced Cushman & Wakefield network as well as recent changes in the legislative framework. In addition to the fund business, Martin Belik considers there to be particularly good growth prospects within the market for the hospitality, residential and healthcare real estate sectors.
To support him in this, he has for many years relied on his strong, dedicated team, and its amazing potential for continuous development. “Valuation & Advisory is one of the central pillars of our business,” explains Martin Belik. “We work in a highly sensitive industry in which the trust of our clients is key. The continuity, reliability and quality of our services are more important than ever.”
