CB Richard Ellis is the #1 brokerage firm in commercial real estate, according to a new ranking of the industry’s top 100 companies in Real Estate Forum’s November 2007 issue.

According to Real Estate Forum, “Over the past decade, CB Richard Ellis has been responsible for a number of headline-grabbing acquisitions, most notably its 2003 purchase of Insignia Financial Group and last year’s $2.2 billion deal for Trammell Crow Co. Company president and CEO Brett White says acquisitions such as these, as well as its organic growth, have made CBRE what it is today.”
