"Our real estate portfolio had grown substantially over the years both organically and through acquisition, which resulted in inefficiencies and a lack of formalized procedures.
Landmark was engaged at that time to assist in organizing CAE’s real estate information, assess our footprint and lease obligations, provide recommendations to reduce occupancy costs, and to execute on their recommendations where justified.
Landmark’s efforts resulted in significant recurring savings for the organization and we have since maintained a very strong partnership with them. With all services being offered in-house, Landmark has been able to proactively manage a wide range of real estate projects in an efficient and cost-effective manner.
The expertise, diligence and professionalism that Landmark has brought to the table is a refreshing change from the typical transactional approach."

"Sonepar mandated Landmark to exclusively represent our Canada real estate interests.
Our network of branches, distribution centres, and offices (both headquarters and regional) across Canada were handled regionally and we elected to centralize real estate functions. This decision to outsource real estate services to Landmark has been very beneficial to our organization hence the successful and longstanding relationship we continue to maintain today.
Landmark has brought to us a significant depth of knowledge in all areas of commercial real estate ensuring that we have been able to upgrade our facilities, better match them to our needs and yet remain at a very competitive cost. I do not believe that we would be able to provide a similar level of real estate accountability control and flexibility in a cost-effective manner with internal staff.
In all real estate decisions, we consider that Landmark is our partner, and they have played a significant role in our continued growth."

"We have greatly benefited from Landmark’s vast network and are always well served by their highly trained real estate professionals. Despite significant internal resources, hiring Landmark to handle all aspects of real estate including site selection and market intelligence, accounting and auditing, legal services and transaction management gained us expertise we could not replicate internally while also providing us accountability. Having this single source provider also enhanced communication for all active real estate matters.
Having advisors partner with us, rather than traditional brokers, was a decision we continue to profit from."
