Helbling focuses on retained executive search for real estate development executives who play instrumental roles in significant and complex projects, and key professionals who are involved in the expansion of markets and other strategic initiatives.
Real estate development is a dynamic sector that shifts with the ebb and flow of the U.S. economy, and entities have always been faced with a market that is aggressive, competitive, and rapidly evolving. What’s different today are the many progressive changes happening simultaneously, such as construction delivery methods, sustainability, energy management, technological advancements, alternative funding sources, urbanization of the population, and how people use their work and residential spaces. All of these factors command attention and sophisticated strategies.
Major developers are embarking on first-of-a-kind developments that have tremendous magnitudes, scopes, and complexities. They may be focused on mergers and acquisitions to expand their portfolios or striving to grow their firms project by project. Regardless of their size, all real estate developers are vying for opportunities to expand their footprints and diversify their assets.
These circumstances signify progress and opportunity, creating a demand for upper-tier talent with unique skill sets to ensure that projects are profitable and successful.
Helbling partners with firms involved in various aspects of real estate development and management.

In recent years, real estate development projects have grown larger and increasingly complex. Organizations face unique challenges specific to their geographic markets, and when they invest hundreds of millions or more on a major development, they need internal design and construction leaders who can protect their investment and ensure a well-executed and timely project.Tom Dunn, Senior Managing Consultant with Helbling
