Jones Lang LaSalle inaugurates Development and Land department

Jones Lang LaSalle introduces the Development and Land Department. The company is delighted to welcome Attila Peli, ex- head of the Land department of Colliers until 2009, who will assume the role of Head of the Development and Land department starting today.

Attila has a wealth of experience in the area of land sales and advisory, with more than 7 years of exceptional results, concluding transactions in excess of hundreds of millions of euros. In 2009, he decided to pursue a personal endeavor, starting up a company in a different field: video media production. A series of his created documentaries were selected and broadcasted for local and international festivals and televisions.

Clients will now be able to perform land transactions for commercial and residential developments, as well as joint ventures that involve land contribution with the support of JLL’s new department. The department will work closely with the Capital Markets department, providing one-stop advisory services for on-hold projects that require development or equity partners.

Attila Peli, Head of Development & Land,  declares: "I am pleased to return to my old passion - real estate brokerage - in JLL, a company that I believe has the right ingredients for leaders: a clear strategy, ethics and the highly trained professionals to properly address the current market conditions and future opportunities. After building up my own business and securing its long term survival, I think it is the right moment to engage myself again in the challenge of the real estate market, currently in the process of recovery, a recovery that is clear for any experienced real estate professional. I am also glad that I have the opportunity to set-up  the new Development and Land department, an assignment which fits me perfectly, considering my experience both with a real estate company and my entrepreneurial venture, and I am willing to put all the attained knowledge into practice to ensure the success of the department in the new market environment".

Gijs Klomp, Managing Director for Jones Lang LaSalle Romania states: "I am excited that Jones Lang LaSalle in anticipation of the expected imminent recovery of the Romanian property market, will now also offer Development and Land services to its Clients. Identifying a suitable land plot stands at the basis of a successful development, nevertheless the land market has always been characterized by a lack of transparency and professionalism. With an ethical professional as Attila Peli on board, who was responsible for many landmark transactions in this segment in the past, JLL will be able to offer the market institutional quality services initiating many future developments.
