An office is more than just a place to work. It reflects the personality of the whole organization. Offices are a significant investment for occupants, who must consider a variety of factors (people, needs, furniture and equipment, efficiency, flexibility, IT, layout, area, image, etc.) that influence their real estate requirements and criteria. Devencore understands these issues. After all, that is our business and we do it for the largest to the smallest companies in North America. We can help clients find solutions which will save them time and money.


Ceiling heights, stacking, shipping, energy, access to transportation... industries have all kinds of very special real estate needs. Thanks to our thorough knowledge of the industrial market, our understanding of industrial clients' needs and our ability to provide technical support during construction, we can identify the right industrial premises, in some cases before they are even listed or built. From soil decontamination to customized construction, we offer clients an entire range of professional services and industrial spaces.


Devencore's retail clients include financial institutions, specialized stores, bank branches, as well as numerous commercial tenants. We offer them services tailored to their specific concerns. Our thorough knowledge of local markets allows us to anticipate market trends, identify up-and-coming neighbourhoods and understand their dynamics and character. Rather than simply compiling data on space availability or current rents, Devencore performs a complete x-ray examination of the market for its clients.


Devencore's DevPosition system enables us to handle clients' needs for disposing of surplus space or buildings quickly and efficiently. The system was developed by Devencore's own experts, and has proven its ability to help clients reach their objectives efficiently and professionally. Always in line with our mission, we represent strictly the space user and therefore do not take any listings from landlords or developers.
