Petr Kareš, head of the tenant representation team at JLL, comments: “It remains a challenge for corporates to make sense of the constantly changing market conditions, therefore it is encouraging to see an increasing number of companies using professional services for their real estate transactions and strategies to achieve best results and to fully optimize their goals.”

In terms of the total volume of office leasing transactions, 2015 became a record breaking year, reaching level of ca. 450,000 sqm of gross take-up. Approximately 350,000 sqm were represented by real estate consultancy companies. JLL’s share reached 31%. Due to the recognition of the quality of its services and the trust of its clients, JLL was awarded “Best Office Real Estate Agency” at the 2015 CIJ Awards.

Jan Mechl, head of office agency at JLL, concludes: “We are delighted to have sustained our longtime leading position despite difficult market conditions, particularly when available supply outweighs demand. On behalf of our team I would like to thank all of our clients for their trust which is highly appreciated and we are looking forward to continue working closely with all our clients”.
