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

Colliers International in Richmond traces its history to 1910, when Harrison Realty and John W. Bates Real Estate combined and founded Harrison & Bates. In 1955, the partnership was incorporated with John W. Bates, Jr. as President and Robert R. Harrison, Jr. as Executive Vice President. After more than a century, the business that started as a two-man firm remains locally owned and operated.

In 2012, Harrison & Bates Incorporated joined Colliers International, a global leader in real estate, giving local clients a broader international base on which to succeed.
