Duff & Phelps Completes Rebranding of REAG. REAG, a leader in property valuation and consulting since 1992, was acquired as part of Duff & Phelps’ acquisition of American Appraisal in 2015. The REAG brand is now unified with the rest of Duff & Phelps, going to market as the Duff & Phelps Real Estate Advisory Group with a newly adopted logo.
The Duff & Phelps Real Estate Advisory Group will continue to offer independent consulting in line with international standards through specific services, such as real estate valuation; investment and transaction advisory; NPL portfolio analysis; acquisitions and divestments of public and private assets; and corporate operations.
Top management at the Duff & Phelps Real Estate Advisory Group, Leo Civelli and Paola Ricciardi, respectively CEO and Country Manager Italy of Duff & Phelps REAG S.p.A., and James Bauer, Country Manager Germany of Duff & Phelps REAG GmbH, will remain in their respective roles.
“Being part of a global business like Duff & Phelps allows us to respond to the challenges of an increasingly complex, global market,” remarked Leo Civelli. “Our name may change, but not the quality of our services, competence and experience, which have always set us apart. As the Duff & Phelps Real Estate Advisory Group, we can provide our clients with a broader service offering delivered through our global network of professionals with extensive industry and technical expertise.”
Yann Magnan, Duff & Phelps EMEA Leader, commented, “The rebrand represents an essential step towards unifying our global real estate practice and further consolidating our leadership in the market. The Duff & Phelps Real Estate Advisory Group will continue to support clients in managing their assets, aiming, as always, at constantly improving our service quality.”
