What types of people tend to excel at CBRE?

(Sonia Totten Mayer, Head of TA, Japan) CBRE people are challenged to grow and perform at their best every day. Commercial real estate is much more than the physical space between the ceiling and the floor. Yes, it’s office, industrial, retail, multifamily and other property types. It’s also management, investments, finance, logistics, workplace experience, strategic consulting, environmental sustainability, digital solutions and more. But mostly, it’s people. People with self-drive, motivation and openness tend to excel in our organization.
