Summit has a proven track record of sourcing and attracting Real Estate candidates for a variety of senior, executive and specialised positions. Starting with a detailed client brief, we pro-actively target (‘headhunt’) relevant ‘off-market’ candidates in competitor and/or related businesses on a retained and exclusive basis.
Using our extensive Real Estate knowledge and expertise, potential candidates are identified, approached and assessed through our rigorous research process. Each candidate is thoroughly appraised, ensuring a close match on both the culture fit as well as the technical content of the role. A competency-based interview is supported by an online Personal Profile Analysis (PPA) report, which objectively summarises the candidate’s strengths and weaknesses.
Clients receive regular updates throughout the Search process, including up-to-date market intelligence, and a detailed report on each short-listed candidate. As skilled negotiators, we are on-hand to delicately manage the offer process with your chosen candidate and to undertake references (both formal and informal). Every placement is monitored on a 3-month, 6-month and yearly basis, to ensure the appointed candidate has integrated successfully within his/her team.
We take great care and personal pride in every assignment, knowing that we are responsible for finding and hiring the person who will have a direct impact on your team and business. We appreciate the sensitivities of such a process; our continued success in the Real Estate market is a direct result of our integrity, professionalism and discretion.
Our Executive Research service is flexible on a project-by-project basis. We work seamlessly with our clients to support their direct Executive Search process, using our extensive Real Estate knowledge, experience and network of contacts.
This is particularly helpful when a client wants to manage the recruitment process ‘in-house’ but needs assistance within an unknown/specialist market.
We offer a bespoke service across all stages of the research and identification/sourcing process, including:
- Target Company List Construction
- Target Company Structure and Hierarchy Mapping
- Design and Creation of Candidate Assignment Briefs
- Candidate Identification and Long List Production
- Direct Candidate Approaches and CV Request

- Provision of High-Quality Research and Progress Reports
