CBRE today announced that it has acquired full ownership of Sogesmaint-CBRE. Sogesmaint-CBRE is one of the most important property and asset management specialist operating in Belgium. CBRE has held a minority interest in the company since 2006.
SOGESMAINT-CBRE was established in 1973 and today it is one of the leading property and asset management businesses in Belgium. The company manages over 1.4 million m² across 90 properties throughout the country and provides property management, project management and leasing services to clients.

We look forward to further building on the successes of the past few years and further growing our offer to clients within CBRE's strong Property and Asset Management team to consolidate our leading position in Belgium.
