History

How We Started

Colliers International proudly traces its roots back to a local firm founded 1898. Today, our offices in 63 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 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

Our office has had a Nashville presence for over 30 years when RCM Realty was founded in 1982 by Robert C. Mathews, III, and the firm grew to become a leading force in the Nashville area real estate market. In 2000, RCM Realty merged with Taylor~Vaughn~Greene to form NAI Mathews Partners and in 2006 the firm changed its name to NAI Nashville. In 2010, the firm became the Nashville regional partner of Colliers International providing national and international real estate capabilities. In 2015, Vision Real Estate merged with Colliers, adding eight new members to our team.

Colliers International Nashville has remained a market leader in the commercial real estate industry. Our office currently has 40 brokers with over 20 years of averaged experience.
