How We Started

Colliers International proudly traces its roots back to a local firm founded 1898. Today, our offices in 68 countries are aligned under a single brand and leadership, providing our clients with best-in-class resources while maintaining our historical flexibility and local ties.

Colliers was one of the first truly global commercial real estate organizations, formed more than 30 years ago as a network of independent firms. As client needs evolved, Colliers embraced the the opportunity to build an integrated global platform of professionals and property services to meet the demand for globally consistent service, accountability and integration.

About Denver

In 1966, Marshall Bennett and Louis Kahnweiler, founders of Chicago-based real estate leader Bennett & Kahnweiler, established a Colorado operation with Chuck Babb as its president. In the latter part of the decade, the firm planned and began development of the Montbello Industrial Park.

Construction of the Montbello Industrial Park continued into the early Seventies, and featured the new Samsonite headquarters campus. Originally billed as “Tomorrow’s Industrial Park…Today”, it still remains an integral part of the community. During the course of the decade, Bennett & Kahnweiler developed more than 71 buildings with square footage in excess of four million square feet.

During the Eighties, Bennett & Kahnweiler evolved into a full service brokerage firm. In 1988, Bennett & Kahnweiler joined Colliers International, complementing its local expertise with international capabilities.

The new millennium set in motion numerous changes for Colliers International | Denver. Our relocation to the Denver Technological Center has given us more exposure both locally and nationally. Expanding our brokerage and property management department has allowed us to provide more clients with the unsurpassed services we've been recognized for since 1966.
