Avison Young is the world's fastest-growing commercial real estate services firm. Headquartered in Toronto, Canada, Avison Young is a collaborative, global firm owned and operated by its principals. Founded in 1978, the company comprises 1,900 real estate professionals in 67 offices, providing value-added, client-centric investment sales, leasing, advisory, management, financing and mortgage placement services to owners and occupiers of office, retail, industrial and multi-family properties.
Formed by the union of Graeme Young & Associates of Alberta (1978) and Avison & Associates of Ontario (1989) and British Columbia (1994), Avison Young was created in 1996 to provide clients with more comprehensive real estate services at the local, national and international level. Over the next decade, new offices opened in Mississauga (1997), Montreal (2002), Quebec City (2003), Winnipeg and Regina (2004), Halifax (2006) and Ottawa (2007).
In fall 2008, the shareholders merged the operations to create a single national entity: Avison Young (Canada) Inc. As a result, Avison Young became Canada's largest independently-owned commercial real estate services company.
