About Us

Mitigating risks for clients across Africa

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Our Africa Desk protects our clients' real estate strategies by helping  them successfully navigate through the real estate challenges that they often encounter in the opaque yet burgeoning market of Sub Saharan Africa.

Working with a dedicated team of Africa experts and partners in local markets, the desk provides risk mitigating solutions to our clients. It possesses a rich repertoire of market intelligence, in depth understanding of local laws, jurisdictions, customs and market players. Thereby enabling comprehensive real estate solutions for corporates whilst mitigating real estate risks.

​Risk protector between corporate clients and Africa real estate market​​

​​We realise and acknowledge that the risk of not being in Africa supersedes the risk of being in Africa. However, this also opens us to a greater risk environment than traditional real estate markets. We understand the how and the why of service delivery in these markets. The team uses proven standardised deliverables that enable quick and effective decision making. We assure speed to market and continuity through the establishment of a continuous feedback loop between our Africa Desk and our CRM’s across the globe. 

Our service delivery is a combination of self performance and affiliate management. Finally, we assure this consistency (in terms of quality of deliverables and services) and oversight (in terms of monitoring and reporting) on all projects across Sub Saharan Africa. Over the past 5 years, Jones Lang LaSalle has a successful track record of delivering in excess of 239 projects across 20 countries in SSA.
