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.

Our local history

In its first 45 years, the company, founded by Robert Snowden and Russell Wilkinson,
operated as Wilkinson & Snowden, Inc. and grew to become an industrial real estate
powerhouse in the market. In 1991, the company joined Colliers International, a global
partnership of commercial real estate firms, and became Colliers Wilkinson Snowden.

In the early 1990’s, we joined the Colliers Investment Sales Group (CISG) and began
honing our skills in institutional investment sales. Since that time, we’ve helped dozens
of institutions and investors with more than $700 million in sales transactions.

Many of these investors find tremendous value in pairing our experience in institutional
sales with our extensive property management capabilities. In 2004, we formed our specialized
asset services team to provide third-party management and leasing services exclusively for our
clients. In 2010, the company adopted the Colliers International name as part of a
strategic integration into a single, global platform.

Did You Know?

Colliers was one of the first global companies to expand operations in Asia, Central Europe and Latin America. We're committed to providing our clients with access to emerging markets around the world.
