When was CBRE founded?

The firm that is now CBRE traces its roots to San Francisco in 1906. By the 1940s, that firm, which later became known as CB Commercial, grew to become one of the largest commercial real estate services companies in the western United States. In the 1960s and 1970s, the Company expanded both its service portfolio and geographic coverage to become a full-service provider with a growing presence throughout the United States.

CB Commercial achieved significant global expansion with the 1998 acquisition of REI Limited. REI Limited, which traces its roots to London in 1773, was the holding company for all Richard Ellis operations outside the United Kingdom. In July 1998, CBRE announced the acquisition of London-based Hillier Parker May & Rowden, one of the top property services firms operating in the United Kingdom. With this transaction, CBRE believes it became the first real estate services firm with a platform to deliver integrated real estate services, through one commonly-owned, commonly-managed company, across the world's major business capitals.
