Josh Smith has emerged as a leader in the commercial real estate industry, having recently been recognized as Utah CCIM Rookie of the Year and as one of the top producers at Colliers International Utah.
In partnership with industry leaders Brandon Fugal and Jordan Wall, Josh brings unrivaled experience in the site selection and occupier advisors realm. Notable client engagements have included Solera Holdings, Strala, VASA Fitness, Upwell, Crest Financial, Layton Construction, Insight Global, Interstate National Dealer Services, Sotheby’s International, and Pattern.
Launching his first company at age 19, Smith has developed brands with a focus on innovation, customer service, superior design and excellence. His unique perspective as an entrepreneur and business intelligence brings an added dimension and depth to each Occupier Advisors client in as much as he has acted as principal, site selector and manager on numerous dispositions. In his capacity as executive and principal, Josh has navigated every aspect of the facilities planning process relative to numerous locations in some of the most significant real estate projects — managing every detail ranging from complex financial analysis, auditing, contract negotiation and construction management.
Bringing a legacy of relationships to Colliers International, Smith developed business expertise at a young age, working in various positions for Smith’s Food & Drug, which was founded by his grandfather, legendary business leader and entrepreneur,
Dee Smith. The same determination, relationship-building skills and commitment to excellence that led his grandfather to establish a Western United States industry powerhouse is manifested in the unique focus and attention to detail demonstrated by Josh on each assignment.
