Market Data on both Smart Phone and Paper

In sync with its disciplined growth strategy, Jones Lang LaSalle IncorporatedJLL recently announced its acquisition of the tenant-focused real estate firm Cresa South Florida. This acquisition provides the Chicago-based full-service real estate firm with an opportunity to expand its foothold in the South Florida market.
