[Editors’ Note: Jones Lang LaSalle’s research function continues to be the heart (and soul) of its business, tracking and interpreting the market forces and economic trends that affect the industry. The brains of the organization (and continuing success), however, come from its unique single-point-of-contact model. Everyone implies they do it; Jones Lang LaSalle actually does. As a result, client loyalty (and appreciation) is a win-win – for both this industry leader and its customers.]
