"Chris Seelig and Lauren White are some of the best leasing professionals I’ve had the pleasure of working with in my career. They are incredibly helpful with negotiating leases and amendments, as well as with providing critical market data to help us achieve our goals as real estate owners. They are responsive, knowledgeable, and very resourceful. I look forward to continuing to work with them!" - Renat Yusufov, Director of Asset Management, Cofinance
"I have worked with Chris and Lauren for over 7 years now, first with Panda Express managing a rollout of new stores in the Cleveland and Columbus market and currently with Smashburger. Chris and Lauren understand the most important part of being a tenant rep. They know how to be a part of the team and put the tenant’s interests first. They are in it for the long haul and do an excellent job planning the work and then working the plan. Instead of “selling” a site, we discuss sites with their pros and cons as if we are spending our retirement money on these stores. Professional, thoughtful, experienced and passionate. Best in class." – David McLellan, Director, Real Estate – Smashburger

I am a fourth-year dual-degree candidate at Case Western Reserve University where I am pursuing my Juris Doctor and Master of Business Administration. I also hold a Bachelor of Science in Applied Engineering Sciences with a concentration in Business Law from Michigan State University where I completed my undergraduate education in 2019.
Although I was born and raised in southeast Michigan, I am proud to call Cleveland my home. I am very excited to put my background in engineering, business, and law to use with the Seelig Retail Team at the Cleveland-Akron office.
As a Marketing Specialist for the Cleveland office, I am responsible for the creation and implentation of company marketing strategies that assist the company and the retail team by enhancing their presence in the local market. Property Auctions also have been introduced to our office, I work with the professionals with marketing and creating websites for due diligence booklets and videos. I also work closely with my team on maintaining the social media marketing for the office. I work closely with my teams in publishing and developing newsletters.
Prior to joining Colliers in 2018, I have worked as a Graphic Designer for an advertising company as well as the Marketing Director for a non-profit theatre company.
I am someone who enjoys digging through my resources and diving into the numbers and values to obtain the most quality information for our brokers and clients at Colliers. Utilizing the many resources here I can use that information to help complete reports, publications, proposals and other requests to ensure our clients are fully satisfied. With a background in the sport industry as well as the mortgage industry I have learned to be a team player. Consulting with many different sports organizations, I have had different research experiences with the goal of driving in new revenue and creating long lasting relationships with teams, businesses, patrons and sponsorships. Through these different roles I have enjoyed the researched aspect of my career and wanted to translate my skills within commercial real estate.
Outside of work you can see me jogging around downtown, attending any Cleveland sporting event, or skiing in the winter.
