Situs, a global provider of commercial real estate (CRE) advisory services, has agreed to be acquired by funds managed by Stone Point Capital LLC, a private equity firm.

“Given the current solid market conditions in our industry, I look forward to leading the Situs executive management team through this galvanizing high-growth stage.”
