Cushman & Wakefield was named the ‘Best Property Valuation Service Provider’ in Qatar.

Operating in Qatar since 2004, Cushman & Wakefield’s Valuations team is one of the leading players in the market. Last year, the team valued over QAR 150 billion of real estate for Qatari clients including government, wealthy individuals, private offices, real estate developers, and financial service providers.

Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia, Knight Frank’s local team won the award for ‘Most Innovative Property Consultancy Firm’. The award shines the light on the innovation-focused approach used by its teams, across consulting, real estate transactions, valuations, and management services.

“We see this recognition as a reaffirmation of our commitment to delivering innovative solutions that not only meet but exceed the evolving needs of our clients. Our aim is to play a pivotal role in shaping the future of real estate in Saudi Arabia, contributing to its sustainable development and positioning it as a global leader in the sector,” said James Lewis, Managing Director of Knight Frank in the Middle East and Africa.

Both Cushman & Wakefield and Knight Frank rank among the Top Real Estate Consulting Firms in the Middle East.
