This ranking is based on responses to NREI’s Top Brokerage survey, which was conducted via email in February and March 2012. Brokers were asked to provide the total dollar value of leasing transactions and investment sales globally in 2011. The totals were combined to determine the company’s ranking.

*In February, BGC Partners Inc. announced plans to acquire nearly all of Grubb & Ellis Co.’s holdings. BGC also owns Newmark Knight Frank. As of press time, BCG’s acquisition of Grubb & Ellis had not closed, so Newmark Knight Frank and Grubb & Ellis are ranked separately.
