Real Estate Survey 2017: Methodology
Euromoney magazine’s 13th annual Real Estate Survey canvassed the opinions of real estate advisors, developers, investment managers, corporate end-users and banks worldwide.
We asked respondents which firms they thought were the best providers of real estate products and services in their market over the past 12 months.
The survey was filled in at country level by senior executives and had two distinct components: Part 1 (Nominations) and Part 2 (Market feedback). In a change from the past, the survey results this year were based only on the peer nominations and voter participation scores (no quantitative data was analyzed).
In Part 1 of the survey we asked respondents to nominate the companies which they thought were best, second and third in each category in their country. 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 participation points to the respondent's own firm for nominations they provided for their peers. We asked every respondent to provide their individual opinions rather than those of their company.
The Overall category results were produced by aggregating the nominations points received and the participation points awarded for nominating peers.
