Although the company dates back to 1773 internationally and 1906 in North America, the modern day CB Richard Ellis was born in May 1998, when one of North America's top brokerage and facilities management firms, CB Commercial, merged with Richard Ellis, an international name in commercial real estate. The result was the first global real estate services firm with the ability to integrate research, sale and lease transactions, property and facilities management, marketing, financial services and valuations for virtually any property assignment down the street or around the world.
