Euromoneys third annual real estate survey canvassed the opinions of real estate developers, advisers, financial institutions and investors in 50 countries worldwide. We asked respondents which firms they thought were best for real estate products and services. We received 570 valid responses, a 102% increase on the 282 votes received in 2006.
Respondents were asked to identify the country about which they had the most knowledge. They then nominated the companies in that country they thought were best, second and third in each category. We awarded four, three and two points, respectively, to each of those nominations in that category and country. We also awarded a small number of points to the respondents own firm for each nomination provided; this number increased as a function of the square root of the number of votes from that firm in that country.
Worldwide and regional results are aggregates of country results. The poll was conducted from Monday, April 16 2007 to Friday, June 22 2007
