Savills has zero landlord or leasing agency conflicts in North America

Conflict arises when one firm represents both parties at the same time Landlord agents have a vested interest in protecting their revenue, which might compromise their objectivity when faced with a conflict Even when a firm does not directly represent a building considered, it might represent that landlord in another building/market Tenant-side conflicts do exists but can be handled through transparency Subleases are potential conflicts but represent a small percentage of our revenue.
