About us


As the number of cross-border real estate transactions continues to grow, it pays to have an international presence.

GVA Worldwide is an international network of independent real estate companies. We share a fundamental belief that the client’s aims and aspirations should always be at the heart of our services.

Avison Young is the world’s fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Avison Young is a collaborative, global firm owned and operated by its Principals. Founded in 1978, with legacies dating back more than 200 years, the company comprises approximately 5,000 real estate professionals in 120 offices in 20 countries. Our experts provide value-added, client-centric investment sales, leasing, advisory, management and financing services to clients across the office, retail, industrial, multi-family and hospitality sectors.

Our approach is different to other property companies. Our emphasis lies in offering the right advice and then supporting it with a range of services capable of supporting a project from 'inception to delivery'. This approach, coupled with our perspective to look beyond real estate, enables us to build long-term relationships with our clients.

In a highly competitive market, we’ve forged a reputation for innovation and the provision of first class advice. We’re also the principal shareholder of GVA Worldwide.

The benefits of establishing strong partnerships with other real estate companies are clear to us. Our network members present a unified offer to the market, helping each other to grow and thrive, by promoting, developing and managing cross-border business.

Whether you’re a new entrant to the market, have ambitious expansion plans, or need specialised real estate advice on a property portfolio, we’re here to help.
