How we Started

Colliers International has emerged from the union of businessmen and independent local entrepreneurs to set up a company with 485 offices and 15,800 employees worldwide, headquartered in Seattle, Washington. As we grow, we continue to seek partners who share our common values ​​and our entrepreneurial spirit.

Operations in Brazil


Colliers began its operations in Brazil in 1997, through a partnership with Betancourt Empreendimentos. The great opportunities in the industrial market and the movement of corporate real estate market led Colliers to consolidate its brand in the country.


During 2001, as a result of a strong regional demand we inaugurated the office of Rio de Janeiro.


In 2011, the activities expanded to the Northeast with the implementation of a new office in the capital of Pernambuco, Recife. About a year later, still in the Northeast, a new operation was started in Fortaleza, thus consolidating the presence of Colliers in this region.
