Senior Brokerage Associate
My focus is local office brokerage, with a focus on tenant representation as well as buyer and seller representation.
I have over 40 years of experience in the the Midlands business community and I strive to bring a positive attitude and passion for the area and its attributes. As a problem solver with “big picture” vision, my professional and personal strength is networking and establishing strong relationships. I possess extensive experience in working with small business owners, professionals and non-profit organizations.
My leadership and service has resulted in multiple commendations from various organizations. As a recipient of the “Circle of Excellence” for multiple years of top commercial leasing and sales transactions, I was also awarded the President’s Excellence Program Award from the Central Carolina REALTORS® Association.
Prior to working at Colliers, I was Senior Managing Director for CBRE Columbia for 12 years. Prior to my career change to commercial real estate in 1998, I spent 20 years in banking as a senior lender and business development executive to develop multiple, long-standing business relationships.

“Mary Winter knows Columbia and she definitely knows commercial real estate! When we spun our practice off from our previous firm, Mary Winter was there for us. She spent several meetings getting to know us, what our needs were, and then flawlessly executed, in a condensed time frame, to put us in the perfect space to launch out new company. I would highly recommend her to any professional looking for office space.”
