CPE unveils the 20 leading firms overall—plus the top performers for investment and leasing—in our latest annual ranking. 

Exceeding Expectations 

Despite suffering setbacks during the pandemic in 2020, commercial real estate transaction volume rebounded in 2021 and exceeded expectations. Our survey respondents reported strong levels of investment sales activity, with a combined volume of over $951 billion in 2021― up from $484 billion in 2020 and $630 billion in 2019. 

Even in the face of looming rate hikes, the outlook for commercial real estate investment activity remains positive for 2022, as investors will likely continue to be driven towards property asset types boasting strong underlying fundamentals. 

While the industry remains optimistic for 2022, our 2022 Most Powerful Brokerage Firms ranking highlights the top firms to watch. 


Commercial Property Executive‘s rankings of the Most Powerful Brokerage Firms are based on self-reported data from all firms. We used a weighted formula, considered various factors including a firm’s performance in 2021 and previous years, and reviewed data that reflects investment sales and leasing activity. The rankings represent what we feel is a logical balance between firm growth and market share. Ranking factors are not limited to the data that appear on this page.
