Real Estate

Our dedicated Real Estate practice has assisted our clients in closing over $1B in real property investments over the past year. Our clients will tell you that our customer experience is the superior market offering, and we believe this because we do care more. We respond to our clients’ interests first, and always.

Our Experience

While we are brokers first, we are prudent business people. Real Estate and Infrastructure are major drivers of the Canadian economy and we very deliberately have chosen this vertical as one to specialize in. Our success is a derivative of the clients we support - this is intentional, measured, and done with a long term view. We benefit from our clients’ success, and we like it when they succeed - so we go the extra mile and do the extra work to support them.

Our Approach

We look for ways to create value and efficiency – in structure, in cost, in placement. We broker to provide coverage improvement opportunities and to find new and different capital participants. We don’t accept the status quo and utilize our Gallagher colleagues, connections and creativity to create new and leading products in the marketplace.

We have access to all the insurers and have strong relationships and meaningful volume, when we talk, markets listen.
