Charleston/Charlotte/Columbia/Spartanburg, SC – Colliers | South Carolina and Colliers | Charlotte brokers are being honored by the Society of Industrial and Office Realtors® (SIOR), which represents the world’s elite in industrial and office brokerage, for its annual Top Member-to-Member Transaction Awards of 2020 in the categories of industrial and investment, receiving two out of the 14 transaction awards and named the largest transaction overall. 

The winning transaction, the sale of an industrial investment portfolio, consisted of 37 properties, 57 tenants and 5.5 million square feet across 16 counties in South Carolina and Charlotte. According to Costar, the transaction volume accounts for the largest single acquisition of properties within South Carolina.

Chuck Salley, SIOR and Dave Mathews, SIOR, along with Colliers’ Columbia industrial brokerage team members Thomas Beard and John Peebles, spearheaded the efforts to market and sell the portfolio and worked with Colliers brokers in other markets who played a role in leasing the properties and touring prospects. 

The following brokerage professionals will be recognized at SIOR’s 2021 TransACT 360 virtual conference, which takes place April 28-29, 2021:

  • Chuck Salley, SIOR | Columbia
  • Dave Mathews, SIOR | Columbia
  • Mark Erickson, SIOR | Charleston
  • Brockton Hall, SIOR | Greenville-Spartanburg
  • Grant Miller, SIOR | Charlotte
  • Don Moss, SIOR | Charlotte
  • Matt Pickard, Member Associate | Charleston
  • Garrett Scott, SIOR | Greenville-Spartanburg
  • Rob Speir, SIOR | Charlotte

“Colliers worked with Reger Holdings to build a large industrial portfolio in South Carolina and the Charlotte region over twelve years,” said Salley, Vice President and Director of Industrial Brokerage Team for Colliers in Columbia. “The buildings were largely vacant at the time they were purchased and our industrial brokerage teams, many of which are SIOR designees, worked to bring them to occupancy. When the time was right to sell the portfolio, the teams across Colliers | South Carolina’s four offices and Colliers | Charlotte collaborated to find an investor for the portfolio. We are pleased to continue to work with the buyer, Weston, Inc., on this portfolio and continue to help grow their presence in the Carolinas.” 

The Top Transaction Awards are presented to the largest sales and lease transactions, ranked by dollar volume, completed by SIOR members worldwide. In 2020, 483 SIOR members reported 1812 transactions, totaling more than 117 million square feet and $10.7 billion in leases and sales in the industrial, investment, office, land, alternative assets and redevelopment sectors. 

In total, 23 members won awards for 14 different categories. For a complete list of the 2020 SIOR Transaction Awards, click here. For a complete list of the 2020 SIOR Top Transaction lists, click here.
