DeVono is the UK’s leading occupier-only real estate consultancy firm.
We specialise in providing clients with bespoke real estate solutions to support their business objectives. At a time when the office is under pressure to perform, we understand the challenge and our responsibility as advisors.
Our goal is to gain a thorough understanding of each client’s business and workplace needs. This allows us to develop a tailored workplace brief and future footprint strategy.
Success is not defined by completing an office transaction, but through ensuring that working culture is positively impacted by real estate choices, with an engaged workforce. We believe passionately that real estate can be an enabler for improved business performance and the long-term success of our clients is at the heart of everything we do.
In the UK alone, we’ve saved our clients:
DeVono was founded in 2003 with a vision to provide conflict-free commercial real estate advice exclusively to occupiers.
We pioneered fair and equal representation for occupiers in the UK and continue to be the leaders of our industry today. Over the years, we have been acknowledged by industry press as the ‘most active’ agent in the UK and have continually expanded our service lines to support occupiers through every stage of their real estate life cycle.
Our goal has always been to offer our clients an integrated experience, meeting their needs across all aspects of their property requirements. Today we are able to deliver a full complement of commercial real estate services covering Workplace Consultancy, Occupier Advisory, Serviced & Managed Offices, and Design & Build – all exclusively for the benefit of occupiers.
We are proud to be working with people who want to make a difference.
We have grown our business by harnessing the best in our people and aim to create a sustainable environment that ensures continuous improvement through everything that we do. We strive to engender loyalty, advocacy and trust, not just from our clients but from our people too.
Our culture is centred on happiness and high motivation, always sharing in our challenges and successes together. We work hard to enhance our team’s work-life-balance, because we know that this is the best way of delivering positive outcomes and building long-term relationships with our clients. We have all helped to shape our business and know that our input, however large or small, is valued and contributes to our journey.
Our core principles define the way we work as a team, in partnership with our clients. They underpin everything that we do and set the foundation for the service we provide.
We are committed to behaving both sustainably and responsibly.
We’re passionate about ensuring that every impact we make is positive, delivering against our environmental and social priorities. During the COVID-19 pandemic we provided pro-bono support to hundreds of businesses around the UK in their dialogue with landlords and providers. Our business and our people also raised funds for the NHS and several other mental health charities to support our communities through these challenging times. Over the years, we have fundraised for a variety of charitable organisations and causes as part of our ongoing commitment to helping others.
We know that our sector has a significant role in helping the UK reach Net Zero. We’re actively committed to reducing waste, conserving energy, and playing our part in the collective effort to reduce carbon emissions. Our design and build team, Dthree Studio, has helped hundreds of clients realise their sustainability aspirations. All of Dthree's designers are in the process of becoming WELL accredited, with the company also being the first in the sector to fully align its culture and services with the UN Sustainability Development Goals.
"It was a pleasure working with DeVono - the team were very professional, knowledgeable and provided the right advice when needed. The most important aspect was that you took time to understand what we were after rather than position everything on the market. I would not hesitate recommending you and your firm."
"DeVono did an excellent job for On Demand from beginning to end. You showed patience as our requirements changed and understood what we looking for at each stage of the process. I would be very happy to recommend your services to other clients and would single out the first class service provided by your relocation team for particular praise."
"I have worked with DeVono for many years. I value their approach – always looking at the big picture, not just the deal. They consider the real estate challenges we face through our eyes, understanding not just the real estate reporting requirements but also the complexity of our organisation’s structure and stakeholders. I’m always very happy to work with the team and value their support."
"We’re delighted to have found a home at Seven Dials Warehouse and a commercial real estate framework that is fit-for-purpose, and one that gives us space to grow in the future. DeVono helped us realise our ambition of providing a sustainable and ‘appropriate’ home."
"We’ve worked with DeVono for several years through various stages of our evolution. We’ve had to meet the challenges of COVID-19 head on including adjusting our real estate strategy. To understand our options, and how best to progress we turned once again to DeVono. They were always there, ready to guide us to ensure we got the best outcome for the business."
