Who Are the Top Brands in Commercial Real Estate?

The Lipsey Co. recently announced its annual look at the Top 25 Brands in Commercial Real Estate.

The rankings themselves "reflect the ballots, informal focus groups, and opinions from a variety of sources made up of more than 50,000 practitioners and industry leaders from REITs, Institutions, Mortgage Bankers, Commercial Brokers, Asset Managers, Property Managers and related professionals we surveyed and interviewed."

The PDF in the last link above includes blurbs on each company as well as how this year's ranking compares to last year. Here's the list. It's mostly brokerage firms. One retail REIT cracks the top 25. We'll give you one guess as to who that is.
