Quality Assurance has been a cornerstone of our Valuation & Advisory business for more than 25 years. Our current approach to Risk Management & Valuation Standards is designed to not only ensure that our existing procedures result in the best and highest quality service and advice to our clients, but also as a basis to initiate improvement in our service approach. Our approach is industry leading with Colliers Assure. Colliers Assure is Colliers’ unique risk management and quality assurance methodology.
With Colliers Assure all valuations and advice undergo a comprehensive, multi-stage, peer-review process.
Certified professionals critique every stage, from initial contract agreement through to service delivery.
We develop a detailed understanding of our clients’ requirements, identify and consider any potential risk and review industry intelligence, before formalising instructions.
All calculations and advice are reviewed and verified, external sources are referenced and all risk issues are resolved before the valuation / advice is released.
Colliers Assure is embedded in our quality management system which is externally audited by the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and SAI Global. Our quality management system continues to be awarded the globally recognised 5 ticks StandardsMark.
